Meet King Nell (born Cornelius Deschamps on December 23, 1988) and Neph Da Don (born Kenneth Williams on September 10, 1986), the dynamic urban duo known throughout the nation as Da Fleet X. Originating in the southeast district of Washington, D.C., King and Neph began their journey independently as solo artists before collaborating to formulate one of the most reputable groups to flourish inside, as well as, outside of their region. Following the success of their first two independent projects; “Welcome to the Fleet Show” and “Made Kings” which have been distributed on Apple Music, Tidal, Spotify, Amazon Music, and iHeart Radio, they landed their first major joint-venture with It’s Gorgeous Musique, in the summer of 2020. Since their signing, they have gone on to release, what would be their first single under It’s Gorgeous Musique, “Back N Better”, which did phenomenal on Spotify by boosting overall listeners, streams, and downloads, as well as, 6k views generated on Youtube. Having performed their hit single throughout the country, their following has increased substantially, thus creating fanfare for their upcoming release, “ZaZa” featuring BWA Kane on June 25, 2021. When asked about who were some of their most influential inspirations in Hip-Hop culture, King had this to say, “Our biggest motivators and inspirations resemble the Mount Rushmore of Hip Hop because they include Three 6 Mafia, UGK, 8ball & MJG, LL Cool J, Big Krit, and Trae da Truth. As one could imagine, this list of inspiration and key motivators has helped push us to bigger platforms and bigger opening performances. One of those notable performances was opening for Pastor Troy, which his concerts are something to remember”. Da Fleet X represents the new generation of District natives with a powerful message for the rest of the world. As sons, fathers, brothers, and artists in the culture, they strive each day to, not only perfect their craft but also perfect themselves and provide resources for their communities to benefit from in a meaningful way. Fleet in here… We in here!
