Speaker Knockerz was an emerging American underground rapper and singer-songwriter, who rose to prominence for his music released through social media apps, especially YouTube, and was not signed to any label.

Early life

Speaker Knockerz of African American descent was born Derek Jamol McAllister Jr. on November 6, 1994 in New York, New York, USA to parents Mesha Wilson and Derek McAllister, Sr., a former musician and ex-convict. He has a younger brother, Christian McAllister, who is also a rapper and producer. His father was imprisoned when he was only 5 years old.

To keep him and his brother from following the same criminal path, his mother decided to move the family away from the troublesome neighborhood and brought them to South Carolina with a much better environment.


Speaker attended Kelly Mill Middle School and Ridge View High School before dropping out of West Wood High School in Columbia, South Carolina in 2013. He never enrolled in any college or university.


The moment Speaker discovered how to make music with his personal computer, he fell in love with it.

It was heavily influenced by his father’s musical background. Growing up, he always messed up his father’s musical equipment, like hitting the drums or playing the keys. His mother was a strong supporter of his chosen path. When his father, a musician, came out of his 10-year prison sentence, he was impressed by his son’s music skills and helped Speaker polish his music. The result of the father-son “collaboration” was the Flight Delayed mixtape. In 2010 Flight Delayed was available online and it was the same time he changed his real name to his now popular name, Speaker Knockerz.

His songs received generally positive reviews and were noticed by respected hip-hop artists in the industry. However, the mixtape was just kind of a hobby back then. After being encouraged by the positive reviews, he decided to do it professionally without signing on to a label. Him as the artist/producer, his friend, Zack Dillan, who goes by the name of Loud Visuals, as the cameraman/video editor, and his father as the corporate liaison officer.

Married to the Money in 2013 was his first commercially released debut mixtape and it was a huge success considering that it was not supported by any label.

Speaker released it digitally through YouTube, Sound Cloud, iTunes, Spotify, and other social media apps. It has 12 songs with trilogy “Weekend” and “Rico Story” which get more appreciation from fans. Speaker’s talent in telling stories through his songs was evident with the trilogy songs, which also received critical acclaim from the critics.

His popularity grew even more when he released a single titled ‘Lonely’. The music video on YouTube was viewed 144.11 million times with a like ratio of 96.4%, equating to 1.14 million likes and 43,000 dislikes. This was his biggest hit.

Rapper superstar Drake was even seen rapping the lyrics while partying at a famous bar. Several record labels called him up and offered many benefits, such as a signing bonus, but Speaker decided to continue producing songs himself.

It was followed up by “Dap You Up” and the music video has nearly 70 million views on YouTube with around 500,000 likes. His discography grew and he along with his younger brother named Lil Knock founded their own label called Talibandz Gang but it was later changed to Talibandz Entertainment after his death.

Speaker even created unique beats and sold them to popular rappers and hip-hop artists such as French Montana, Gucci Mane, Lil’ Scrappy and Meek Mill. His beats were incorporated into their songs and Speaker fans are proud to be living proof of his influence in the hip-hop industry.

During his short career, he was able to release three mixtapes and several songs. He made an impressive amount of money for such a young age by selling copies of his songs through iTunes and monetizing his YouTube channel.

Talibandz Entertainment released one mixtape posthumously to pay tribute.

The label also re-released Flight Delayed in 2016 with additional tracks. It also continues to release new songs digitally, as planned by Speaker when he was alive.

Private life

There is no information about his dating history or any controversy. He was focused on making music and making money. With his talent and ability to sell his own songs, some industry insiders believed that he would have been more successful in his music career if he didn’t meet his untimely death at the age of 19.

Speaker had been dead for at least two days before his body was found on March 6, 2014, in his garage at his home on Two Notch Road in Columbia, South Carolina.

Days before his death, his mother appeal filed on Facebook if anyone had seen her son, as it was unusual for Speaker not to notify his mother of his whereabouts. The Richland County Sheriff’s Department was called to investigate the rapper’s death. They concluded that there was no foul play surrounding his death and that the cause of death was a heart attack. An autopsy was performed and it was found that his heart attack was caused by an overdose of codeine syrup. The codeine syrup was the same substance he was known to sip often in his music videos.
