About Onsight Deeda
Louisiana harbors a musical history as rich and unpredictable as a bowl of gumbo. From creole and Cajun stylings through jazz, blues, and gospel to bounce and, of course, hip-hop, the state’s sonic lineage simmers with its own taste stirred, shaken, and served up with a distinct kick by one generation after another.
Hailing from Abbeville, Onsight Deeda wields a sharp and slick sound of his own punctuated by energetic flows, drill intensity, unshakable melodies, and knockout hooks. Residing with his mother, father, and older brother, Onsight Deeda discovered music at home as a kid. Dad owned a tiny studio and performed in a local rap group. So, Onsight Deeda often hung out in the studio with his pops. Absorbing the catalogs of hometown heroes, he listened to Louisiana heavyweights like Lil Wayne, The Hot Boys, and Boosie Badazz. Simultaneously, he excelled as an amateur boxer, winning a Golden Gloves tournament at 15-years-old and even placing second in a Regional Championship tournament.
Despite graduating high school, he found himself in and out of trouble with various stints in juvenile detention and jail. Returning to Abbeville from a particular bid, he went viral with the breakout “Welcome Home” followed by “I’M A GANGSTA.” After catching another case, he found himself in jail for the last time in 2018. Getting out, he made a conscious decision to focus on music. Generating views in the millions on YouTube and drawing Cash Money Records to his corner, he ignites another era of Louisiana rap on a series of 2023 singles beginning with “Don Dada.”
