About Tru Def

Music. We’ve come to know, institutionalize, and adore its ability to reach the masses; to create subcultures through which audiences across the world identify themselves; to represent a certain set of ideals and dreams; to use melodies and lyrics as a gateway to the hearts and minds of fans; to give people something to believe in. Time. It’s changed the face and purpose of music in more ways than one would care to conjure up. The ideals have changed along with the dreams. The lyrics that inspired people to move toward change have been replaced by empty slang. The melodies are no longer original, only simple replicas of music composed generations ago. We’ve been anticipating a shift in the content of music that is being produced. We’ve been patient as the parade of one-hit radio wonders meandered through the airwaves. We’ve welcomed the few artists who broke that worn-out mold and threw a middle finger up to our current standard of normality. We’re ready to welcome another. Tru Def, better known to his family and friends as Desmond Williams, has come a long way from the traditional, southern-bred community into which he was born. Drawing from the experiences of his father’s musical career, along with the journeys taken by motivational artists such as Kanye West, J. Cole, and Will.I.Am, Tru Def was headed in the direction of music from a young age. Although the bulk of his music is considered hip-hop, he does not limit himself to a single genre and experiments with pop/electronic-infused beats, creating a multi-dimensional sound that really gets the people going. Becoming an overnight success is every musician’s greatest fantasy, but not everyone can be so lucky. In the meantime, Tru Def has been able to harness his talents and learn the real definition of hard work. From producing YouTube music videos, to performing at college venues and opening for artists like Fabolous, to creating new and original beats, he is continuously taking steps toward perfecting his craft and becoming a musical force to be reckoned with. His most recent project, “Forever,” is a testament to that hard work. With a track list of original lyrics and beats, “Forever” sets Tru Def apart from the crowd and is merely an indication of the type of artist he will one day become. Until then, think. Think of how much time we’ve wasted on generically branded songs. Think of globally universal lyrics. Think of peeling back layers of music instead of listening to flat sounds. Think of musical ingenuity. Think of Tru Def. Think of musical ingenuity. Think of Tru Def.
