The competitive and die-hard hip-hop culture of southern California has yielded some of the most influential rap artists of our generation, and KEYNE D’Var is certainly no exception. Born January 17, 1991 in Bakersfield, California as Devon D’Var Watkins, the inescapable lure of the 90’s rap scene pushed KEYNE D’Var to begin developing music from a very young age, and by the age of twelve he had already begun to experiment and hone in on his aptitude as a writer, and his passion for music. “I always had an interest in music as a kid but listening to artists like 2pac, Notorious B.I.G, and Ma$e sparked an interest in music for me.” Defining himself with independence, verbal dexterity, and a meticulous sound, Devon took on the alias KEYNE D’Var, meaning Sharp, clever, and intelligent which compliments his music style.
Inspired by an incredibly diverse range of artists and genres KEYNE D’Var’s music has already resonated with listeners of all types, and his fearless attitude has allowed him to reinvent modern day hip hop with a whole new sound. “When I write or compose a song I allow myself to jump from the top of a skyscraper, without a parachute, in hopes of surviving.” KEYNE D’Var now actively reps the G4MD lifestyle, otherwise known as “Grind4Mydream”, and the ongoing theme of independence and overpowering confidence has become very evident in all of his music, as he strives to give his followers a fresh new perspective on not only music, but on life in general.
