Make no mistake about it nothing shines stronger than honesty in presentation. People relate better to things that they can believe in. A fact not lost on West Virginia's own, Ponce De’Leioun. Key tastemakers within the industry share Ponce’s own fervent belief in his own talent, most notably among them Hip Hop Legend Tony Touch and Nas’ Resident DJ, DJ Green Lantern.
At this moment Ponce is working on his first official album titled, "College Life" where he targets the college audience in different segments of college.Himself a student of business with strong leanings in marketing, Ponce is keen to the need to rap authentically. One glance at his latest YouTube release College Life makes it clear that he reps what surrounds him, in this case basement parties, school, fun, alcohol and dingy rental houses. But the message remains, he ain’t trying to lie about his life.
If asked to summarize his raps in one word, it’d be relatable, adding simply “I relate to most college students around the nation. I live the life of a college student and I rap about my college life”
Well aware of the chip on his shoulder that his state’s lack of notoriety has given him, he is determined to prevail to say the least “A lot of people doubted me or looked beyond me thinking, 'Nobody will ever be a successful rapper coming from my city or state.' I changed all of their minds when i opened up for "Travis Porter"(Hip Hop Group), when i was placed in my city newspaper,magazine and news channel. Wont be successful? I make it my goal to do just that. The best revenge is to prove wrong those who doubted you."
