My name is Ponce De'Leioun. I am a Wheeling, WV native and currently a Morgantown W.V resident who has represented my state to the fullest extent for the past few years. Ive recently been invited to London Uk for some major career opportunities and Im looking to raise funds in order to make the trip possible.
My accomplishments in the music industry have ranged from big to small and from local to global. My most recent accomplishment was having one of my music videos titled "It's On" go #1 on Major Recording Artist " Snoop Dogg's" UnderGroundHeat Countdown. Within 3 weeks my video rose from the #10 music video to the #1 spot which earned me a shoutout on twitter from SnoopDogg himself.
Another major landmark in my career was my invitation and flight to London UK last summer to meet/freestyle and be interviewed by the UK's legendary DJ, Tim Westwood of BBC Radio 1. Shortly after the freestyle was released Youtube.uk picked it up on their popular page, WorldStarHipHop picked it up, and over 100,000 views would accumulate between the 3 different uploads of the freestyle.
Recently I was invited back to London by Tim Westwood again for a second Freestyle session and interview. ( Tim Westwood is known for Inviting famous American artist to the UK for interviews and freestyle sessions, he has worked with everybody from Will Smith in his younger age, to drake, lil Wayne, nicki minaj, and dozens of the greatest including Biggie and PAC. )
I am the first and only West Virginia artist to be invited to London by Tim Westwood and one of the only Unsigned American artist to gain the achievement.
My career has been built alone off of hard work, time and dedication. No manager, no publicist, no assistance. I've managed to fund myself on every trip in and out of the country by working 2/3 jobs at a time while being a full time Business & Marketing student at Fairmont State Univesity.
My trip to London is scheduled for mid July and will last til mid August when I return for my final semester of college. During the few weeks in London not only will I be interviewed by Westwood but I will also be working on collaborative songs and music videos with several Verified and Rising HipHop Stars in the UK such as Big Narstie, Section boyz etc.
Due to such a short notice and invitation to London I'm looking to raise the funds for the trip through sponsorships and donations as soon as possible so I can purchase my ticket and complete as much work as I possibly can in the UK before my return for College next month. Considering my ticket alone is worth at least $1,000 I'm looking to raise at least $3,000 which converts into ( 1,752 British Pounds ) so that i can complete all the planned work along with traveling and eating while in the country. I've supported and represented my state to the max and would appreciate the support in return!
All Donators and/or Sponsors will be posted on a special page on my website dedicated to those who helped raise the funds.
Thank you all for your support!
