Much to the excitement of his already sizeable army of fans, South African hip-hop artist Billy Desert is set to release a brand new Ep.
With the Project expected to be a success and  imminent, the exciting, newfangled sound that he has made his own is certain to gain interest from across the city

The development of his unique style is the result of a lifetime of musical influence. Growing up in a musical family meant that Billy  was always surrounded by different forms of music. His mother was a part-time domestic worker,activist,small business owner , and his mother exposed him to a wealth of music as a child, all of which influenced his development.

His first foray into learning music by himself came at the age of 16 when he decided to do hip hop , a decision which he hasn’t looked back from ever since.

Born in Ga molepo , it was here that he developed his musical tastes and interests which have had a profound influence on the direction his musical journey has taken.

After realising that making music was his main goal, he began to showcase his talent in various venues across Polokwane , playing at numerous gigs and making sure that his name and music were being heard by as many people as possible. In no time at all he was quickly noted for the unique style that he brought to the hip hop scene and his popularity began to grow.
As his confidence grew and his style developed, he soon saw a loyal following begin to grow and he became a popular local hit in the Polokwane music scene. His talent with a variety of musical writtings  and his unique hip-hop  sound with a twist started to find an appreciative audience.

Although his name was continuing to grow in Ga Molepo , it was not here that he was destined to become a star. Instead, Billy  had developed an affinity with Turfloop  having travelled there frequently as a child, and after picking up a Bachelor's in his metric results , he left to go backpacking around Pta in 2015 and never managed to stay.

Polokwane is where  his musical ambitions continued to grow, aided by the sounds of PLK( 015)/Polokwane that he found all around him. Although rap  music is where Billy's  roots lie, and there was plenty of features in Polokwane , that is not to say that he finds himself restricted to this genre. In fact his influences are vast, something that his music collection clearly demonstrates, providing literally a room full of music from every corner of the globe!

Billy is keen to point out that everything he listens to directs his musical development in some way. However, he would certainly include GINO Latitan,Eetzblaq,Miacc, Tyger SA ,Abza LaRock, among his biggest influences.

Finally, after honing his unique sound in recent years, he is now preparing to release his first ever project , which underlies the changes that Billy has gone through over recent months . The biggest of these was the ‘hustle  from the hood to the city, which has allowed him to develop as a person, and has in turn profoundly aided his musical development.

The songs provide a combination of his exciting rapping flows,mellow vocals, with a rhythmic undercurrent that bears testament to his flows, and punctuated throughout with elements of trap, hip-hop, pop and R&B.

Other changes that have affected or influenced his song-writing over recent months have been his development of inspirational writing, an area that he pays a lot of attention to and incorporates to a certain degree in his music, employing sound bites of biblical verses  to add an extra dimension to some of his songs.

And as if that wasn’t enough, Billy has taken it upon himself to take up an entirely different, though wholly satisfying, hobby of raising funds for community organizations around the surrounding communities of Polokwane . The satisfaction he gets from indulging in his many passions has led to a bond with giving back to the community  on tour.

It seems that the city is building an appreciation for his sound and talent, and his loyal army of fans spread far and wide
