Devin Copeland (born June 4, 1970), better known by his stage name Devin the Dude, is an American rapper from Houston, Texas. He is perhaps best known for unique rapping style, his long tenure on Rap-A-Lot Records, and his 2002 songs "Lacville '79" and "Doobie Ashtray".

Devin began his career as a member of the group Odd Squad, who were signed to Rap-A-Lot Records and released their debut album, Fadanuf fa Erybody, in 1994. Devin later became a member of labelmate Scarface's group Facemob before beginning his own solo career in 1998 with the release of the album The Dude. After releasing three additional solo albums on Rap-A-Lot, Devin departed and has since released his music through several other independent labels.

Despite being a critical success, Devin the Dude has not achieved success in the mainstream but continues to be a well-known and respected underground hip hop artist. He is a prolific featured artist, having made guest appearances on over 200 songs since 1993.
