With music embedded in his bloodline, at a young age Devin Hailey knew exactly where his talent would take him. Born in Nyack, New York, the pressures of getting into the entertainment business surrounded him. Stemming from a loving family with a hard working mother and multi platinum selling father, Hailey was destined for success. With his father on the road, Hailey's mother took on the responsibility of both parents. Though she was an amazing parent, things weren't always easy. Growing up an only child, Hailey, known then solely as Devin, was forced to occupy and humor himself, thus his creativity was displayed.

In the coming weeks, SL Jones and DJ Burn One will release their new collaborative EP, Paraphernalia, and while the rapper and producer continue to put the finishing touches on that project, they're excited to release a new song today, a teaser for fans, "Wave Runner."

While "Wave Runner" won't officially be included on Paraphernalia, it's the first song that SL and Burn One ever recorded together, and a great example of the quick chemistry the pair was able to build together. "I met Burn One at the studio and we just started vibing," recalls SL. "After bouncing a couple ideas off each other, we just went in and knocked it out."

That free wheeling, laid back approach comes across well on "Wave Runner," with Burn One's cooled out, airy instrumentation serving as the perfect backdrop for SL's smoothed out delivery and bouncy flow. "It was the beat, really, it just gave me that feeling," explains SL. "It's just one of those songs that sounds good when you let it play."
