Deyshawn Thomas Chapman was born in May of 91’ and raised in Salt Lake City, UT. His stage name, not to be mistaken as an alter ego, is DopeThought. DopeThought is more than an alias that was brought upon with inspiration by the theory that dopamine can be released with natural happiness by the power of peoples’ thoughts. He has a self-proclaimed genre of Progressive Hip-Hop, which he chooses to release his dopamine through his music to spread a positive message that is relevant to todays struggling society, where words are respected and music creates inspiration for people on the world now and for next generations.

Deyshawns’ goal to make a positive change in the world was inspired through lessons learned, trials, and tribulations of his and many others childhoods’. He has one self released title “Life Elevated Pt. 1” produced by Worth (Jackson Savage).
