Genre: Hip Hop/Rap
Hip Hop is about lyricism. Our music was at it's illest during the 90s, a period most cats refer to as the "Golden Era" of Hip Hop. Luckily, Deathwish's formative years were during that era. Sales have dwindled ever since then, largely because of an overall shift from hardcore singles to Pop jingles...

Deathwish has been blessing mixtapes alongside major artists for a minute. You'll find him on sites like WorldStarHipHop.com, DatPiff.com, and many more. You may have seen him reppin Coast 2 Coast (the most downloaded mixtape series in the world) in XXL's 12th anniversary issue. Although Deathwish is known for his unique style of rhyming, he's also a talented producer.
Deathwish is 100% Greek and was born in Greece, but he grew up here. His parents immigrated to Pennsylvania shortly before his birth. He loved music at a very young age and finally decided to pick up the pen himself in high school. "I'd listen to MCs all the time and think to myself 'I can come up with hotter shit than that,'" he recalls. "So one day, I decided to make a song. I figured that if it was wack, nobody had to hear it." Needless to say, it wasn't wack.
"I go in like I might not come out..."
It took some time to harness his potential because Deathwish was, well, being Deathwish. Today, he's as focused as a laser and is currently distributing his demo to a number of labels. When you consider his lyrics, delivery, song concepts, charisma, and stage presence, it's easy to see why he'd be a welcome addition to anyone's roster.
