Detorius Raheem Rivers, better known as DT Spacely, is known as one of the biggest up-and-coming music producers in the industry.
Born August 6, 1993, he was raised by his mother Malika Rivers and is quietly paving a lifestyle for her, his three brothers, and one sister.
DT Spacely was born in a small town Dothan, Alabama and is based in Panama City, Florida. DT has ventured out and capitalized on ways to further his career.
Taking the hip-hop route, he has gotten a chance to work with heavyweights such as Rich Homie Quan, Plies, Boosie BadAzz, Yung Butta, Wiz Khalifa, Rich The Kid, Lil Durk, Young Thug, Hotboy Turk and the late BankRollFresh.
Starting at the young age of 16, his talent has raised many eyebrows and certainly doesn’t go unnoticed. His love for music is what jump started his career. “I always wondered who was making the beats the artists were putting their words to,” he says.
In Winter 2014, Rich Homie Quan offered DT Spacely a position as his in-house producer after falling in love with his work. DT signed a three-year contract with Linwood Agency, who is currently being managed by RHQ’s father.

He doesn’t know what the future holds, but he is going to continue to work hard and accomplish as much as possible. With only three years left to reach his biggest goal, DT plans to be rich by the age of 25. “It wouldn’t hurt to win a few Grammys,” he says.
