Honcho God was born Taiwan Sanders-Boyd on 9/15/1996 in Plainfield, New Jersey. His love for music started at a young age, watching his family members rock to Percolator at cookouts and basement parties. His childhood dream was to become a Ruff Ryder, and becoming an artist was sparked by watching Meek Mill battle-rap on YouTube. Honcho appreciated his content and authenticity and began the journey to greatness.
Honcho God moved to a small town in NC in 2009. Although he worked tirelessly to gain exposure there, it was slow-moving. In 2017, he took a leap of faith and relocated to Charlotte, NC. There, he was able to connect with various local artists, DJ’s, promoters, and the like to build a steady and supportive following. He returned to his roots in NJ for a short time, and put in major work - meeting and working with local artists, doing features, and learning about musical engineering; His sound is unique - where drill, delivery, and talent create a musical trifecta that we never knew we needed.
The Queen City is excited for his recent homecoming in April 2021, and looks forward to all that he has to share with this city and beyond. His mother used to tell him that things she said went ‘in one ear and out the other’. But now, his music travels through the ears of his supporters and fans - and never leaves.
"There’s nothing worse in life than a waste of talent." – Robert De Niro “A BronxTale” When Singer, Songwriter and Producer Pauly Dinero was asked for a quote that he lives by, he immediately paraphrased a quote by Robert De Niro from the classic movie “A Bronx Tale”. Staying true to that quote Pauly refuses to waste his talent. Hailing from Newark, Delaware, Pauly has a story of his own. He has had his share of ups and downs with family, friends and the industry. Through it all Pauly has remained consistent no matter the obstacle. He is the true definition of the term turning lemons to lemon aide.
At an early age he was forced to deal with the topic of mental health when he and his sister were removed from their mothers care due to her battle with Bipolar Schizophrenia disorder. In addition to that he was placed in the care of his father that in turn displayed abusive behavior towards him and his sister. As a result he was forced to mature fast. However, he did not let that get the best of him. As years progressed Pauly began to write about his issues, which he found therapeutic. He took his life struggles as well as its success and put pen to pad creating some of the most life changing, thought provoking and feel good music.
Known for being lyrically versatile with impeccable delivery and energy that would make any music lover an instant fan, he began to perform around the city. As time progressed he began to make a name for himself and built a solid and very supportive fan base across the tristate area. Since then he has won 5 philly song battles, performed on stages with artists such as Future, Yo Gotti, Meek Mill, Cardi B, Migos and French Montana to name a few. Additionally, he won Power House 2017 Philly with over 20k votes and has sold out multiple shows as a headliner.
He has recently inked a management deal with Kings Lifestyle Entertainment. When asked how he felt about deal he smiled charismatically and stated “There’s nowhere to go but up.” His forth coming project yet to be titled will not only display his lyrical ability, but allow you to see how he has evolved as an artist and individual.
