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

Hi Devonte, we’d love to hear about how you approach risk and risk-taking
Taking risk is something that us as people try to stray away from but I think it’s probably the most important move you’ll have to make in life. I look at the place I’m at in my life in general and I can say if it wasn’t for the risk I’ve taken and times I’ve had to step out on faith I wouldn’t be this ahead.

Alright, so let’s move onto what keeps you busy professionally?
I think what sets me apart from a lot of people is my reasoning, my purpose behind the things I do is very deep and personal but the feeling of knowing that the strategic moves I make will bring me and my family success is what drives me and what’s make my music different from others is you can hear that drive and pain.

If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
Honestly I’m with my best friends everyday so it’s hard to say haha
