Early life and education

Lil Sporty D was born on July 13 1982 in New Orleans, LA. Right from his childhood, he was inclined towards music, he first started his career in music at the age of 12. At the time, he was spending his rough childhood in the Marrero Project’s toughest neighborhood, which lay across the bridge from New Orleans.

Being raised by a single parent and being taken in for foster care, Damien’s life was far from easy, and he often comforted and entertained himself with music. As a young kid, he felt a strong love for good sound and often recorded songs on cassette players with his brothers and a few friends.

He attended Delgado Community College for an associate's degree in business with specialization in Business, Management, Marketing, and Related Support Services.


Lil Sporty D started playing around with notes as a hobby. However, it didn't take long to realize that music was much more than an interest or hobby to him. After completing his degrees from community college, he started focusing on his music career. However, several record labels didn’t give him a chance. This is when he decided to start his own record label, Mentality Music Entertainment.[5]

In August 2021, Lil Sporty D collaborated with several mainstream artists. On his first single, “CERTIFIED,” Magnolia Chop and Jay Jones collaborated with him. On his second single, “Like Woah,” he featured Lil Noodle.[6]

In November 2020, Lil Sporty D’s new single “FEARLESS” featured Abg Keith Kidd Kidd and Young Juve.[7][8]
