Career[edit]

PSD tha Drivah first appeared on Mac Dre's 1996 compilation entitled, ‘The Rompilation’, appearing on the track, "Menage A Trois" and producing the tracks, "Uninvited" and "Gumbo". After that he would appear on N2Deep's 1997 album entitled, ‘The Golden State’ and release his debut album, ‘Game Costs’. PSD tha Drivah would later release several more albums, 1999's ‘Bread Head’ and ‘What It Is’, 2002's ‘All I Want’, 2003's ‘You Ain't Heard of Me?’ and 2005's ‘The Guru’ and ‘PSD Classic’ before finally making it to the Billboard charts with 2007's ‘Da Bidness’, which was released with Messy Marv and Keak da Sneak.

PSD tha Drivah has roots from both Vallejo’s Crest Side neighborhood, as well as Mississippi. The rapper is known for his smooth harmonious voice and being a "playa. PSD tha Drivah has put out numerous mixtapes with DJ Ambush, called ‘Mixes And Renditions’. PSD tha Drivah is also known as "Playa Stevie Dee", PSD or "Tha Drivah" for his swagger and his excellent driving skills. PSD was close friends with Mac Dre; they formed a rap group called the Cutthoat Committee which also includes rapper Dubee. The group went on to record two albums ‘Turf Buccaneers’ and ‘Money Iz Motive’. The group disbanded due to the untimely death of Mac Dre.

His latest mixtape, entitled ‘The Risk and the Reward II’ features late rapper and friend, The Jacka, in ‘Know No Better’ and ‘Who Are You?’. PSD tha Drivah has worked with many other artists throughout the Bay Area. He has said in interviews that rapper San Quinn is like family to him.

Arrests[edit]

Davison bragged in a 2012 self-published YouTube "interview", that he has an extensive criminal rap sheet but also claimed at the time to have been humbled by his Federal drug imprisonment and claimed to be concentrating on his music. In the interview Davison admits to a felony conviction for a gun related crime in 1996.[1] and Department of Justice records indicate an extensive criminal arrest record including probation violations, DUI, drug and weapons charges, and even an arrest for first degree murder in Kansas City, Missouri in 2004.[citation needed]

In July 14, 2008, PSD tha Drivah was arrested at Sacramento International Airport while trying to board an Express Jet flight. Transportation Security Administration (TSA) screeners picked Davison out for pre-screening as he went through the airport security checkpoint, authorities said. As screeners patted Davison down, they felt "a large bulge through his pants inside his inner right leg," according to a U.S. Attorney news release. Davison allegedly told the screeners the bulge was a colostomy bag and tried to leave the screening area. Davison had 1,000 ecstasy pills in his pants and $5,600.00 in $100.00 bills his front left pocket. A TSP screener later found 5000 more of the pills in a room where Davison had been briefly left unattended before the search. Davison was arrested. [2] According to the Judgment filed with the court in the United States District Court for the Eastern District of California, criminal case No.: 2:08CR00350-01, Davison was convicted through a plea deal of one felony count of Possession with intent to Distribute MDMA a class C felony. He was sentenced to 46 months in prison and was on supervised release for 36 months thereafter. [3]
