Don Pete bio
With hip-hop artist Don Pete, what you see is what you get. How many times have you heard THAT description of a musical artist, only to find out the image and substance don’t quite match? However, Don Pete is determined to remain the real deal; the kind of man that lives his music. “My music and lifestyle go hand and hand,” he states emphatically. “I try to make sure my lyrics match what’s going on in my reality. I keep it as authentic as possible.”
Based in Houston, Texas, Don Pete was born in Tulsa, Oklahoma, which is not usually a place you associate with hip-hop and rap music. Don Pete actually grew up in Houston and from a young age he quickly soaked up his father’s music collection. This is why names like Al Green and Marvin Gaye are naturally listed right alongside 2Pac, Snoop Dog and Jay-Z in his pantheon of musical influences.
