Biography

“Songwriting talent, a producer's ear, business savvy, drive and a willingness are the recipe for supreme success.” Says Yung D aka Desmond Banks of LiL’ Raskalz Entertainment. Financially speaking, he is not in the upper echelon of musicians and producers: At 32, he doesn’t have a fleet of luxury cars; a Miami mansion; insane jewelry; a yacht and every pop, R&B and hip-hop artist falling all over him or herself trying to work with him, or will he?
Despite all the flash, his origins were more humble. He got his first taste of success as songwriter for the boy band Flex in the early '90s. Working with hit songwriters Walt Aldridge and Ava Aldridge gave him the tools he needed to find his voice and to begin testing the waters of production and later began doing session vocals for more established artists “Greg Almond, All 4 One etc.” But as time went on, he felt the urge to do more. “I just felt like I could be doing more with my career than being a member of a band. I really had a passion for being a producer. So I had to take a step backward to take a step forward.”
When D is working with young artists, such as Crystal Cameron and Tisha Stratford he creates a bed of music and works with vocalists and songwriters to create something that even 30-year-olds secretly sing in their cars. Those guilty-pleasure tracks are a perfect combination of simple, infectious hooks with a clean, pitch-perfect production.

Lyrics

SO REAL

Written By: C Cameron and D Banks

SO REAL
Words by Crystal Cameron
Music by Desmond Banks

Verse 1:

Everyday that I live, Lord you become more real to me
I love you ~ so
The more that I give you of me
The more that I feel your peace
I need, need you
Your eyes, let me see
All that you want me to see
Your ears, let me hear
All that you want me to hear

Chorus:

I hear your voice, louder and louder everyday
So real, so real
I feel your hand, guiding me every way
So real, so real

Verse 2:

With every breath that I breathe, the more that I feel
You in me ~ I crave you ~ so
The more that I put my faith in you
The more that you help me through
I need ~ I need you
Your blood covers me ~ through all my iniquities
Your touch sets me free ~ You are so real to me

Chorus

Lift My Handz, do My Dance

Written By: D Banks

LIFT MY HANDS, DO MY DANCE
Words and Music Desmond D. Banks

Verse 1:

Ain't the cars or the money
Ain't the fame ain't it funny
All the material things can't compare to the joy you bring
Diamond rings, big homes, wheels that bling
Ice and chrome
They don't mean a thing to me
I don't care what they think about me
(i'm gonna lift my hands gonna do my dance)
Gonna do my dance
In spite of everything
You keep on blessin me

Chorus:

I'm gonna lift my hands gonna do my dance
Gonna lift my hands gonna do my dance
And if you ain't scared raise'em up and clap your hands
Lift your hands do your dance

If you feel me through your hands up
lift your hands up
Through your hands up
f you feel me through your hands up
lift your hands up
Through your hands up

Verse 2:

Ain't the status or the stilo
Won't go the way that the world goes
I take it all off of me
And give you praise constantly
Flashy things, tight clothes, Gucci, Cosmo
They don't mean a thing to me
And i don't care what they think about me
(i'm gonna lift my hands gonna do my dance)
Gonna do my dance
In spite of everything
You keep on blessin me

Chorus:

I'm gonna lift my hands gonna do my dance
Gonna lift my hands gonna do my dance
And if you ain't scared raise'em up and clap your hands
Lift your hands do your dance

If you feel me through your hands up
lift your hands up
Raise your hands up what
f you feel me through your hands up
lift your hands up
Raise your hands up what

My All To You

Written By: C Cameron

MY ALL TO YOU
Words by Crystal Cameron
Music by Desmond Banks

Verse 1:

I feel like I'm loosing my mind
When I walk away
I dream to bring me back to you
calling me by my name
Without you it's so hard
Hard to see
In everything it's you with me
You and me

Chorus:

I want to feel you, I want to touch you
I want to spend my life with you
Oh please just tell me, oh please just hear me
I want to give it all to you
I want to see you, I want to please you my all to you
I want to see you , I want to please you
My all to you

Verse 2:

Your words brings life back to me
when nothing else feels right
Your love fills an emptiness in me
Filling all my soul with light
without you there is no me
In everything its you with me
you and me

Chorus:

Bridge:

Days grow lonely when I step away
I want to give it all to you
My life to you ~ My everything

Chorus:
