My name is Deezy Slim aka Derrick Holley a native of Winnsboro, South Carolina. I was born on November 11,1983 in Columbia, South Carolina. At the age of twelve I used to write poems until one day I just turned one into a rap song. After that it was on and it turned into an addiction. I got my hands on a kereoke and started rapping on other artists intrumentals. I was getting inspirations by artists such as Tupac,Bone Thugs and Harmony,Master P and many others. When I turned 16 years old I started taking my music serious. I worked hard own getting money so I could do a demo. When I got enough money I started going to recording studios in my area. I was giving out my first songs. I started connecting with producers and learning from them. I opened up shows for artists like Juvenile,Trina,Da Brat,Dirty,Uncle Luke,Petey Pablo etc. When I the Juvenile show I was so shock because had the croiwd crunk and screaming. When I got off stage girls was asking to take pictures with me and that made me know that this me. In 2002 I got with an indepedent record label called Mastermind Records. We when to places like New York,New Orleans,Atlanta,Maimi and others to promote first compilation album. On the album I did a song with Pastor Troy. We had the album in stores and sold them out the trunk of cars. We sold approxamently about 20,000 units. We shot a video for our single 'Get Back' in Winnsboro and Atlanta. We put the videos on the streets for sale. We put out numerous amounts of mix cds. In 2003 we put out another compilation titled 'The Take Over' which was realesed by 2K Sound and EMI distributions. We had one single called 'time to crank it up' by the group I was in 'Counrty Boyz'. That single went crazy through the clubs and radio stations. Then after that we put out the second single called 'shake it like a pitbull' by Cold Cannons featuring me, Deezy Slim. We did a video which has been airing on B.E.T uncut for at least a year now. I also have a group abum called 'Dirt Road Pimpin' by the Country Boyz that is finished. It is scheduled to be released in January 2006. I've been on the road performing the song at shows. I released my own mix CD called 'Hood Status' to promote myself. I have my own group that I manage. There's a lot other artist albums that I'm featured on. I currently started my own record label and just released my debut album called 'Sumtin' Serious'.
