Despot

Artist

Alec Reinstein (born May 7, 1982), better known by his stage name Despot, is a rapper from Queens, New York City. He was signed to rapper El-P’s label Definitive Jux in 2004. Despite not having released a full-length solo album, Despot has been a part of the New York underground rap scene since the mid 2000’s

Despot has rapped acclaimed verses on releases by Das Racist and Mr. Muthafuckin eXquire, performed in front of crowds of all sizes and musical tastes and made enough money to purchase a diamond-encrusted ring shaped like the Forest Hills, Queens apartment building on 108th Street in which he spent his childhood.
