.......Born and raised in the heart of Boston, MA, Nilton Depina aka 2Face Dejavu never missed a beat of life, learning early that he was a unique individual on a mission. His first true experience of rhyming came at a mere 8 years old, when he rapped at a family function. Recording his own flows on an old karaoke machine, he caught a glimpse of what he sounded like on tape and could not let go of the new realm of self-expression. Many co-signers attest that 2Face Dejavu has been a musical pioneer since the age of 15, spending all free hours of the day on his passion for music.
.......Christened Mr. Renaissance, 2Face Dejavu is described by fans and supporters as being a multi-faceted rapper, producer, writer, and entrepreneur, able to apply himself to anything necessary. He graduated from 2 of the best schools in the nation and has 9 years experience recording, performing, and marketing his own work. His style is that of passion and energy, his lyrics that of a street poet, and his image that of a successor to the entrepreneurial spirit of the Hip Hop throne. His street credibility is widespread, and his professionalism is well recognized. He has the mind of a rebel, yet respect for tradition. He possesses everything necessary to succeed in the entertainment industry. A young and handsome Cape Verdean is now taking the world by storm.
.......In the name of the tragic civil war surrounding his Cape Verdean community, 2Face Dejavu screams freedom, justice, and education, and his words explain it all. 2Face is a genuine lyricist with an irresistible presence who is on a purposeful mission. I plan to take over the world that is mine and change it for the better. But first, I have to relate to the people. With his 5th unofficial solo release to be dropped later this year, The Legacy should be proof to all that 2Face Dejavu will undoubtedly be one of the biggest and most influential Hip Hop artists of the up and coming years.
I've done many live shows from Boston to New York City. On stage is where I shine the most. It's the essence of all music -- the live performance!
It's time to put my city- Boston- and my people- Cape Verdeans- on the map! It's also time to bring to the world... my perspective, my intellect, and my purpose.
