PRLog - Jul. 12, 2014 - NEW ORLEANS -- A stream of consciousness, positivity and thought provocation will be unleased with the release of the single, “You Sleep Out Here”. The single produced by New Orleans super producer BlaqNMild, will be available on iTunes. A mixtape version originally produced by Cise HD will be featured on Devious’ upcoming mixtape, “Life Is What You Make It”.

Devious is a successful rapper, best-selling songwriter, creator, educator, and hip hop architect, whose career has spanned well over two decades. He helped to create New Orleans hip hop music through a series of steps, most notably the fact that he began his career when he was a mere pre-teen. After decades of a pilgrimage of sorts, it culminated in him being awarded ASCAP Songwriter of the Year, a proud honor that only a handful of artists can claim.

Devious is also the creator of the New Orleans Union of Entertainment, a successful organization that helped shine a light on the city’s underground talent. He eventually added a youth chapter where teens and others can take part in brainstorming, networking, sharing entertainment ideas, and much more. In addition, his music has also taken a turn toward positivity and inspiring others, most importantly, our youth. When asked working with international superstar Kevin Gates, Devious said, “Kevin is an intelligent guy and his work ethic speaks volumes. My cousin Eddreon who lives in Baton Rouge made me aware of him two years ago and suggested that we collaborate. Based on my cousin's referral, his team responded to me. After a few months of Gates being unavailable, his team reached out to me. Cise made a hot mixtape record for me and I felt Gates fit the track. BlaqNMild produced the iTunes version. Kevin is down to earth and his team is very accountable. Out of respect for his craft and success, we wanted to add to his movement versus just grabbing a feature to bandwagon his buzz. Cise and I have been creating instrumental songs and submitting them to major labels for placement. I think it bridges the gap between my audience and his. I wanted to do something special to reach the youth and show Louisiana that we really work together regardless of status or label affiliation. I reached out to BlaqnMild because I wanted people to hear his skill set on a hip hop composition. He's extremely talented and diverse. It all worked out and the stars lined up for all of us on this record. It's a gumbo mix for sure."
