Deshawn White (born July 3, 1986) is a pastor and American rapper from Johnson City, Tennessee. He has released three albums, an EP, and several singles since 2007.

White was raised in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania. He began his music career writing music for mass audiences, but later became a pastor and shifted his music to Christian audiences. By 2017, White had a family of his own and moved from Johnson City, Tennessee, to Umatilla, Florida to pastor at Victory Church. White made the local news for being the first African-American pastor at the church. He stayed less than a year and moved back home to Tennessee to promote racial reconciliation in his old home with a team of pastors, law enforcement officers, and other leaders.[1]
