Who is Summrs?
An American rapper who hails from Lafayette, Louisiana, Deante Adam Johnson, better known by his stage name Summrs, was born under the zodiac sign of Scorpio, on 18 November 1999; he’s known best for his songs such as “Cut So Deep”, “Test Sum”, and “Listen”, among others. Summrs is an underground musician, known for his controversial lyrics and different style in music, and also as a member of Slayworld, he’s known for his work with Autumn! and Kankan, e referred to collectively as ‘The Three Kings of Slayworld’, who started this SoundCloud collective in early 2016.
Early life and education
Summrs was raised in Lafayette by his parents, however, he prefers to keep his private life away from the media’s attention, and he hasn’t shared information regarding his childhood days, or his parents’ names and occupations, nor spoken about having any siblings, thus it isn’t clear if he was raised as an only child or not. His ethnicity is African-American.
In his interview for Our Generation Music, he said that from an early age he had an interest in music and video games, and his moniker was actually his online name for Xbox games; he recorded his first song when he was 16, however, at the age of 18, he began taking music more seriously, and then decided to launch his career as a rapper.
He attended a local high school, however, it seems that he didn’t matriculate, since he talked about his problems with drugs, saying that he is now clear, and he uses every opportunity to message his fans to stay away from drugs and alcohol.
Rose to prominence
Since he had no equipment for recording, and no money to pay for a studio, Summrs recorded his first song on Mixcraft on an Xbox microphone; it took him a while to become popular and have his own fan base.
When he was 17 years old, he found Autumn!’s beats on YouTube, and then messaged him on Instagram, started talking, and soon they met in real-life since they realized that they were just 45 minutes away from each other.
They started making music together, and the two of them created a new way of rap music, called PlugNB sound. After a year, they met Kankan, and the trio moved to Orlando, Florida, where they lived together, and founded their collective SlayWorld.
In 2017, Summrs released his first album, “Bellworld 3”, then several more, however, what really brought him fame is his album “Isolation”, released in 2019. In the following years, he released “Intoxicated”, “What We Have”, “Nothing more Nothing LESS” in 2021, and “What We Have 2” and “Evolved II”, in 2022.
Love life and relationships
There were various rumors concerning Summrs’ love life and his sexual orientation, however, he hasn’t spoken about these assumptions.
He’s been seen with several girls unknown to the public, and didn’t take the time to introduce them to his fans, however, one named Brenda, with whom he was in a long-term relationship, was often seen in his Instagram posts in 2020.
Before Brenda, Summrs was dating a girl named Bell, and dedicated two mixtapes to her, however, nothing is known about her.
He was also dating an Onlyfans model, Gaby, who was captured on his Instagram live throwing a brick through his window, and threatening that she would stab him, while she also fought another girl in front of his apartment – the incident finished by Gaby being arrested.
In January 2022, Summrs had an Instagram live with his new girlfriend but he didn’t share her name or any information about her.
As of April 2022, it seems that Summrs is in a relationship, he hasn’t been married or engaged, and doesn’t have children.
Summrs is active on his Instagram account, which has been followed by nearly 250,000 people, however, it’s private thus we couldn’t see his posts. He doesn’t have Twitter and Facebook account, but he has his eponymous YouTube channel, launched on 15 February 2018, which is today subscribed to by over 35,000 people, and onto which he uploads his music videos, which combined have amassed over 3.5 million views.
His fans can enjoy his music on SoundCloud and Spotify, and on 1 April 2022, he released his newest single “Fu*k My Shins and My Slimes”, which is a collaboration song with Googentog, and has already generated over 1,500 streams on Spotify.
Controversies about his death
In January 2020, Summrs was in a car accident, and news about his death was all over the internet, with people were saying that he was shot, however, he went live on his Instagram to prove that he was alive.
On 23 March 2020, worldgreynews.com shared the news about Summrs saying: ‘Underground rapper Summrs also known as “Summrsxo” confirmed dead after a presumably overdose on the prescription drug “Oxycodone”.
Summers was on a business trip from New York back to his home state of Houston. Most likely, the rapper had consumed the drug during the flight and fell on his way home.’
However, this was fake news too, and it seems that Summrs took advantage of this, as in October 2020, he released his new single “Leave Me 4 Dead”, and his fans talked about this song as one of his best.
