I am "Ponce" and I am Hip Hop's Fountain of Youth
Ponce stands for Ponce De Leon.A Great man Who went through many trials and tribulations in order to meet success, in his case " finding the Fountain of Youth". Ponce chose this name after a few years of being known as s.dot or The superstar. He said " well i wanted to choose a name with more meaning" he chose "Ponce".This was much more powerful to him because his Real name is Deleioun. Named after the Great Ponce De Leon. He feels that he is the future of music and the fountain of youth to Hip-Hop. Therefore, as long as he is rappin the game will constantly change and will never die. Ponce was signed onto a record called "The Future Entertainment from 2006-2008. May 18, 2008 Ponce chose to make a lil switch up by signing to Bittasweet Records. He says" My old label wasnt doing anything for me, the rappers werent really rappers,the workers werent really workers,Im trying to make it to the top and get out of this city, but everyone in the group aint like me, they dont wanna be known anywhere else they are fine with being known in Wheeling, and I got way to much talent to let i go to waste, so ima switch it up and tape another photo in my Picture Book, Im in the league now. Ponce is from Los Angeles California, but spent most of his upbringing in Wheeling West Virginia in a little set of projects known as Hil-Dar. Ponce is inspired by his family, friends, and lifetime experiences that will never be forgotten including: the death of family members, the success of others, and even the hard workers that struggled to live an average life. His style and performance has changed much since the beginning of his rap career in 2002. His style has revolutionized many times since then. Songs like "Dippin Leanin" and "When It Rains" evolved into songs like "Picture Book" and "Imagine", where he projects imagery and one can dissect and relate to the life he is speaking of. Everything he's spit spoken is unique, genuine, and written by him himself. Ponce seems to be so unique because he tends to project many different schemes, producing imagery, similes, metaphors and etc. He is speaking to his audience and listeners, unlike other rappers who continuously speak about themselves to themselves. He beholds his own style. Ponce claims, "I love music". When asked what Rap means to him Ponce replys, "Its my way to express myself and what Ive been through, giving others somebody to relate to and kids someone to look up to. He once wrote "Live Life by The Second and Reach out For a Goal, Follow Your Vision and Follow Your Soul, Make It To, The Top and Let Nobody Deprive You, Drive Slow, I know thats how I do." Ponce quotes "many changes took place before I began to follow my dreams: The death of my uncle jimmy, The death of my Grandfather, The constant shipping of my father in and out of the country, my detentions suspension's which led to being expelled from school, i've always had a horrible attitude problem and controlling it has always been a problem, especially when it is with some type of authority, But things are changing and I'm ready to rise, never to fall. He says, "You only get one chance, one life. So live it to the full extent and make something of it."
