Krazy D was born Walter DeWayne Levi in a small city called Bogalusa. Raised in Bogalusa by a single mother who passed away when he was only 13 years old. He was known in the Bogalusa community of Poplas Quarters in the streets as a trash talking rapper. Later on in his life in the Poplas Quarters community in Oak Hills Project he met Thomas D. Kates aka Shadowman. From that meeting with Kates he got his break to improve his rap skills and record his first single called Slide, Jump and Bounce. Then he went on to perform in many venues and auditoriums in the local area and around the state of Louisiana touring with M.C. Nero (Got A Lotter Respect) as his opening act. Also, Krazy D have performed with and opened up shows for the following artists The Hard Boyz, Partners in Crime, Cheeky Blakk, Joe Blakk, Mia X, Ice Mike, Soulja Slim, Lil Bootsie and Keith Sweat.

Also, after graduating from high school he drifted from different cities and states sharing and promoting his song. Recently, he recorded a new album called BOG City on Shadowman Productions label and cds. See shadowmanpromotions.com for more information. Also, on BOG City he released his first single off the album called ‘Put Down da Guns.’ And, later he released another single off the album entitled BOG City on Shadowman Productions cds called ‘Don’t Play No Game.’ His music is flowing and banging ready to add to any play list for all occasions.
