If they say hip hop is dead then rap artist D-WIN is the breath of fresh air. Born Demar Winston in North St. Louis, MO, D-WIN has managed to overcome slim odds and rise from one of the worst crime cities in the nation. As a youth, his mother was a strong positive influence in his life after her and his father split at the age of 10, but her working multiple jobs to support him and his two brothers often left time for mischief and at least one foot in the streets. Influenced by music at an early age D-WIN began writing and peforming at age 9 for whatever audience would listen from churches, to schools, to community centers. Unfortunately, while trying to balance music, sports, and the street life in highschool, D-Win was hit with a wake up call when he was caught and charged with possesion of an illegal substance with intent on school grounds. Although major jail time was escaped, he was expuled from school. But allowed to return to school his senior year, D-WIN managed to get back on track and earn a full athletic football scholarship to Southeast Missouri St. University. Soon after, tragedy struck D-WIN and his family when his older brother, Darius McCaskill, fell victim to gun violence and was slain. Devastated and down, but not out, D-WIN used this tragedy as motivation to push ahead and be successful for his brothers name and legacy. Though playing college ball, D-WIN's heart was always in his music, which lead to him along with two friends to form a group. The three began recording songs and performing at shows, parties, and freestyle battles with high acclaim. After starting at cornerback four years and graduating from SEMO with what many black men didn't have in the area where he was from, a college degree, life changes eventually broke up him and his collegues. But he decided to pass up a white collar desk career to persue his dream in the cutthroat music business as a solo artist. With shows under his belt opening for major acts such as Lil Wayne, Twista, and YoungBloodz to name a few, as well as distributing thousands of street mixtapes throughout the St. Louis Metro, D-WIN as well as his fans always felt his time was near coming. With a unique voice, unprecdented lyrical content, and a style all his own, D-WIN is a full range artist who can give you a look into the harsh realities of inner city life as well as feel good music to keep any party going. Partnering with the up and coming powerhouse Hustle League Entertainment assembles the perfect match, as his future in the game is much intact with the labels slogan, "Failure is Not an Option!"View more about Dwin @ http://www.myspace.com/dwinner
