27 year old recording artist Sincerest Don was born in South East Washington DC, but grew up in Dumfries, Virginia where he spent the majority of his life. Don grew up in a family of hustlers, but made a promise to his family and himself that he would use his talents as a polished artist to go above and beyond his environment and tell his story to the world. Sin has been writing and performing for over 10 years, but got his first big push with the release of his most recent EP ‘Life of Sin, 27 Winters’. With his introduction to the world, he came out with a breath of fresh air to the game, with a focus on being a sharp wordsmith rather than relying on catchy hooks or club beats.
A monumental acknowledgement to Sin’s lyrical gifts, and credibility came with the full endorsement of multi platinum New York based producer, Rsonist of The Heatmakerz, who pioneered the chipmunk voice soul samples that ushered in the iconic rap supergroup- The Diplomats. A renowned legend, Rsonist, gelled with Sin’s style and worked with him on several tracks, including the ‘Interlude’ and ‘Strawberry Letter’ on ‘Life of Sin-27 Winters’. Thus, encompassing Sin with the stamp of approval of raps Mecca-NY, while still holding true to his VA roots, and becoming the first VA rapper on a Heatmakerz beat.
Akin to his Virginia rap predecessors, and influential inspiration The Clipse, Sin embodies the blue collar, gritty, get it by any means mentality while astutely painting his and his people’s adversities, triumphs, and stories with a raw, yet highly intellectual gleam. Comparing his clever poetic artistry to that of the late great influential painter and designer Jean-Michel Basquiat, who as Sin appreciates, used to paint in his favorite outfit, which often consisted of Armani suits.
A fashion connoisseur himself, Sin, like many of us, is a complex individual with his own unique brand and swagger. From akin of seasoned hustlers, to a smooth ladies man who may fly your girl out to the latest art gallery. A self proclaimed foodie, and goofball, that still carries the mystique and aura of a respected don. Sin’s got a lot to offer, and he’s ready to show the world.
A true music head, or hip hop enthusiasts dream, Sins’ unique metaphors and wordplay regularly leave listeners dumbfounded, forcing them to rewind certain bars, or have them pick up something new each time they listen. Sin pronounces to usher in a new era that pays homage to the essence of lyrical rap, while still garnering the attention of the current generation with relevant content that will hold it’s own in the streets, and still have the club lit. Stay tuned, No Brakes!
