Devontae Mon’Tekio Whetstone was born August 17, 1995 in Talladega, Alabama, to Carmine Whetstone and Tamara L. Morgan. Devontae confessed Christ at an early age at Mt. Cleveland Baptist Church. He attended East Side Headstart, Tom Joy Elementary, Jere Baxter Jr. High and graduated from Cane Ridge High School in Nashville, TN. As a young child, he was very passionate about drawing. During his school years he wrote poetry and Christian rap music that displayed his love for God, family and other people. After high school he started a career path in homebuilding and construction, while continuously enhancing his true passion in music and art.
Devontae Mon’Tekio Whetstone was a kind-hearted, giving young man that was selfless and sacrificed for others who loved his family. Through all his life pains, he always made it his business to make people smile and speak life into others. During his short time on earth Devontae affected so many others with his infectious smile which brought light to any dark place and his the- cup-is-half-full perspective on life. He had begun to make preparation for college to pursue his career in music and arts, but sadly that goal came to an end.
