Dontavious Lamar Cannon, known professionally as Cannonboi, is a national recording artist, songwriter and entrepreneur. Cannonboi was born in the small southern town of Fort Gaines, Georgia where he began developing a love for music at a very early age. Years of honing his craft and mastering his dirty-southern flow have resulted in Cannon’s unique style. Building quite a following in Georgia, Cannonboi performed with the likes of Rick Ross, Lil Wayne, Young Jeezy, T.I. and Gucci Man to name a few. When he debuted his first project in the mid 2000’s, Hated by Many, Loved by Plenty, hosted by Islandboi Dre, his hit single, Thinking of You, garnered over 100k views on youtube. Directly following the success of this project he decided to take a break from music to start a family. After a few years of not being able to express himself creatively, Cannonboi was drawn back to his love for music. Understanding that his career would benefit from a geographical change, Cannonboi decided to relocate. He currently resides on the border of Pennsylvania and West Virginia, making his base of operations the eclectic Pittsburgh music scene. In 2018 Cannon teamed up with Grind Mode Music CEO, Dion Dupree, to drop his first hit single after his hiatus, In the Air. Exploding on the scene with the new release, Cannonboi immediately dropped another hit single, Boss moves, which was promoted with a New York City press run. Attaining interviews on Hot 97 and Power 105 while also meeting directly with Def Jam/Roc Nation executives has added a new level to Cannonboi’s brand while simultaneously launching his own label/Clothingline, Big Bank 4Life Ent, in March of 2019. Boss Moves Remix, featuring Juugman aka Yung Ralph is his most recent release and he traveled to Atlanta to shoot the official video for the single. The anticipation for this particular single was unprecedented and a promotional tour is currently in creation with his Grind Mode Music affiliates. Look for his next project, slated to be released in May of 2020. Teaming up again with Island Boi Dre for this and the continued partnership with Grind Mode Music will ensure that this release will attain the notoriety it deserves.
