Devaine (born June, 1990), is a Canadian recording artist from Toronto, Ontario. Inspired heavily by artists: Tupac, Nas, Jay-z and Rakim, he is considered a "hip hop talent that does not base his style off of mainstream trends."
"His sound is soulful and classic, with lyrics that are witty and sharp, he tends to produce a notable old-school flavor to his music. The jazzy, boom bap production he favors brings back memories of A Tribe Called Quest, and Common's early material.
Dev seems to shy away from current trends, sticking with a classic sound that does his laid back, but very capable delivery well. The Toronto emcee brings an interesting story oriented approach to his raps, making him a very engaging personality." -HotNewHopHop.Com
