Davonte Elijah Akins (Born December 24, 1995), known professionally as Yung Genesis, is an American rapper, singer, and songwriter from Deland, Florida. He rose to attention in 2019 when he released his Album (All or Nothing). He is best known for his singles, Throw It Back, Bestie, Must Be In Love, Attention, Facetime, and more. He was five years old when his father left, leaving his single mother to raise him on her own with the help of his grandmother and uncle.
While he was not struggling academically, Akins would spend a lot of after school hours teaching himself how to produce, engineer, and to become one of the World’s Greatest Hit Makers. After years of investing in new equipment, learning and focusing on his craft, he began his rap career independently, building his brand and fan base all throughout his school year in Jacksonville Jobcorps Center, where he landed his biggest break and hit singles Bestie and Throw It Back.
