Tru Def is a trailblazer musician carving out his own style of music. Hardworking and driven, Tru Def infuses several genres of music including Hip Hop, Pop, EDM, and alternative just to name a few. Native to Dallas, Texas, growing up in the town Pleasant Grove, Desmond WIlliams a.k.a Tru Def found his passion for music at a the tender age of 6 when his father handed him a mic and told him to speak his mind. He went on to college at NY’s Manhattanville College and left with a degree in business management and that New York gritty mentality. Combining his knowledge with a relentless passion for music, Tru Def is hungry to join the ranks of the greats such as his idols Kanye West and Jay Z.
