"The LeBrons" Episode 3 "Gloria"

Introducing: Wise Vega

Who is Wise Vega?

Back on October 2, 1985, Davon Brown was born in St. Lukes Hospital of Harlem, New York. The first born of two, Davon was raised most of his childhood by his mother Yvette Vega while his father was incarcerated. Up until his father’s release, Davon grew to be independent learning things on his own. Straying away from the typical street mentality, Davon stayed out the same, enticing box that attracted most of his peers.

After moving to New Jersey at age very influential age of thirteen, Davon fell in love with hip hop. Although heavily influenced by Notorious BIG, Davon's initial dream to rap was heavily influenced by Tupac, writing his first song after hearing America’s Most Wanted featuring Snoop Dogg. Later, Davon would take on the stage name "Wise" and would eventually add his mother’s last name "Vega."

Honing his skill and making the conscience decision to make a career out of making music, Vega found that people were naturally attracted to issues they could relate to…and if anyone knew about issues, it was Vega.

Wise has somewhat of a split personality when it comes to a musical style. Wise is a conscious rapper who speaks of struggle, family issues, and everyday life. Vega on the other hand is a flashy, cocky, sarcastic rapper who speaks of the good life. There is no telling what he may say to get his point across.
