Dereos Roads, formerly known as Proseed, is a Washington County native [Pennsylvania], who began emceeing in ’98 at the age of 14, the year Gang Starr put out Moment of Truth and the year Black Star debuted. It could have been the magic of the late nineties, or the teenage need to rebel, but whatever the reason, he started to live the life of a politically charged, clear-headed lyricist. Though mostly known for his versatile songwriting and stage presence, He is also an adept producer, making many of his own beats.
Since his early beginnings, Dereos Roads has performed at sold-out venues and has shared stages with Aesop Rock, Mr. Lif, Tech N9ne, Louis Logic & JJ Brown, Blueprint, Illogic, Qwel and Maker, Manchild of Mars ILL, Cee Know the Doodlebug of Digable Planets and more. Dereos Roads has outlived many emcees and continues to provide raw talent to a scene that desperately needs it.
