David 'Lil Dee' Wood
Jim Jones/Soul Mafia - United States


David “Lil Dee” Wood was born on July 14, 1988, and raised in Crown Heights, Brooklyn, NY. He started playing drums at six years old at church sitting under mentors such as Marvin Johnson, Jeff Davis, Derrick Wright, Collin White, and Jermaine Paris. The following year he received his first drumkit (a Pearl) from his father David Wood. David has evolved all of their skills into his own unique style of drumming and soon completed albums with David Caton and CMG (Committee Music Group), Jesse Boykins III, Timothy Wright, DW Project, and Meghan Williams. 

Bred in Indianapolis and now hailing from Brooklyn, GC & Soul Mafia is David's new band and comes at you with the fiercest rock/ hip-hop show anywhere. Often described by engineers as “the loudest drummer I’ve ever heard”, his fiery and dangerous style is a perfect fit for Soul Mafia.

More than just a drummer, David has already produced the singles "Can’t Believe It" for T-Pain featuring Lil Wayne and also 2 Pistol featuring T-Pain entitled "She Got It".

David also plays for Hip-Hop superstar Jim Jones who is promoting his fourth album Pray IV Reign which peaked at #9 on the Billboard 200 chart.
