About the speaker

DeMaciiio is an anomaly all his own. A student of multiple musical genres: soul, rock, jazz, and classic boom bap hip-hop are all a part of his foundation. His ability to bridge modern flows, socio-political content with high-level lyricism make him a standout in the new school.

His content is drawn from his surroundings—the pockets of despair, the pain, hurt, and ugliness of his community—and is transformed into beautiful poetry and narratives of both external and internal reflection.

He has worked DJ Sicari, Boca Floja, Guilty Simpson, DJ Los and Jamal Bufford of The Black Opera. DeMaciiio has performed at over 250 venues across the country, reaching as far as Mexico City, Berlin, Paris and Amsterdam.
