Sunkiss (aka Deshawn) – ‘We Go Back’

Deshawn killed shit on Showbiz & AG‘s “Represent” way back when. Remember this?

“Cuttin bitch-niggaz down with a hundred pound axe, like I was raised by psycho-crazed lumberjacks/
So in a battle I be stabbin, choppin MC’s like trees, piece-by-piece buildin cabins!”

He changed his name to Sunkiss and was rolling with the Terror Squad for a minute, now he’s resurfaced with a new Premier track. T La Rock also used to roll with dude as he revealed when I spoke to him last week:

“He’s another one of those Kool Keith type rappers that has a bunch of different names. He was Sunkist, he was Dehawn E. Thunder, he was Bald-Head Assassin. He was so nice. When I hooked-up with him he was only fifteen years old. He used to go to Harlem and battle Big L and all these rappers like that, and go around the Bronx battling. We went to a club together one time, and me and him battled ten rappers at the same time, and I took a break and he kept goin’! I didn’t have to take a break, I just did because somebody wanted to do an interview or something. I left and came back and he was still battling. He was like, ‘I got this’ and he took out the next three. So all together we took out like thirteen MC’s in one night.”

^ Nah. Big Red was, funnily enough, a big red-headed white kid from Diamond’s neighborhood.

Hey, why has nobody commented on this?

He put together a street DVD of rappers battling to beat up the box of some random hoodrats.

Sunkiss is also on Cocaine City Vol. 4 DVD talking about it with a preview.

“If you steal my shit… I will murder you, dog”.
