Following the raving sensation that was “Distance,” up-and-coming rap artist Shoplift Spittz looks to maintain his momentum by crafting an album that will feature his hit single plus so much more this February. As an artist who has proven his quality and charisma, Shoplift hopes to inspire a new generation of rap enthusiasts who will find life and solace in his unique brand of uncompromising music.
Deon Williams, aka Shoplift Spittz, is an artist with a rare level of dedication to delivering high-quality music. He stops at nothing to grow his craft and rides on a wave of untamed passion for his art. “The rap culture is me, and I am it; I couldn’t imagine my life without music,” shares Deon. “My purpose is to push the culture forward with my encounters through my music.” He has the drive and the raw talent to propel him to an advantage and keep him a step above his peers in most respects.
Shoplift Spittz has the breed and upbringing of a true artist. His father was a former member of the group Four Tops. Shoplift looked up to his father for most of his life and found inspiration in his mentorship and example. Tragically, his father died a few years ago, leaving a hole in Shop’s heart that nothing has filled ever since.
However, the artist would find reason and rhyme in the rectitude of knowing that his father would have wanted him to continue down his path of passion and purpose. Shoplift would find a newfound drive in making his father proud through his craft. That fuel would bring to life the release of his hit single “Distance,” which would end up on World Star and gather over 300,000 listens in record time.
Today, Shoplift Spittz gears up for a February 21, 2021 release of his new album entitled Every Day Above Ground, which will feature other artists like Love and Hip Hop’s Tabius Tate, Mr. T The Producer, Enwith Selasi Duse, his visuals shot by Jordan Garland, and many others. Shoplift is launching the album under Do Something Entertainment.
Shoplift isn’t jumping into the waters of music recording without prior weather water experience. He has shared the stage with many top artists in the past, including Fred Da God Son, Tabius Tate, Obie Trice, Lil Boosie, 50 Cent, and many others. For a stretch of a season, Spittz toured with Obie Trice and learned a wealth of insight and knowledge through the experience. Today, he is more than ready to take on the virtual and real stage all on his own and become his own person. Shoplift Spittz isn’t one to shy away from the big stage and is ready to take on the challenge head-on.
Shoplift hopes to be a beacon of hope to those who struggle to find their sparkle in the dark. His moments of grief after losing his father have fueled him to speak authentically about the pain, which has proven to be more than comforting for those who seek expressionist music that will carry them through the rough times. “I’ve been through all this to get you through this very moment, to get you to this present time, to get you past your scars, wounds, and fears,” shares Shoplift. “This is a reminder to you that fear doesn’t control us.”
