We had the good fortune of connecting with Dev’ Desean and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Dev’, what’s the most important lesson your business/career has taught you?
That you have to invest in yourself in every way possible before you can expect anyone else to.

Let’s talk shop? Tell us more about your career, what can you share with our community?
I’ve been writing and recording music for almost a decade. I feel like my appreciation and love for the art form is what pushes me to raise the bar and improve my sound consistently. I believe that coupled with my individuality and creativity is what separates me from other artists. Being an independent artist is definitely challenging but the progress makes it worthwhile. My faith and developing attention to detail has helped me face these challenges the most. I aim to show the world that Dev’ Desean & Ca$h Affiliated is here to bring them nothing but the highest quality bodies of work!

Let’s say your best friend was visiting the area and you wanted to show them the best time ever. Where would you take them? Give us a little itinerary – say it was a week long trip, where would you eat, drink, visit, hang out, etc.
I’d recommend to anyone to visit downtown Houston just to get a quick vibe of the city. Going there gives you plenty of dope options from graffiti walls, museums, eateries, music spots & etc.

Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
