About DTermined: D-Termined was born and raised in Maryland. Growing up in the projects formally called Washington Heights aka Boscow. There he learned alot from his older cousin and idol Joseph Levi Littleton “AKA Joey”. Greenbelt Elementary is where he first began to meet the people he would consider his friends. From there his mom moved to another project called Glenarden Apartments AKA “Brightseat Rd”. Where he would begin to learn the ropes of the streets following his cousin Joeys footsteps, until his cousin was gunned down in 1991. After the tragic death of his cousin Joey will he began to realize how serious life was. A vow made to his aunt Poochie (Joey’s mother) that would eventually be broken was that he promised not to sell drugs, and become a victim to the streets. that led to the beginning of a young boy without a sense of direction, torn from society’s stronghold forced to be a man at an early age blinded by a faster living which in return created the pain that would compel an up and coming lyricist.
