Deep – Nothing’s Impossible

West Coast artist Deep chronicles life-changing experiences on album ‘In Too Deep’ 

INGLEWOOD, CA – Music was always an ever-present part of life for Deep. Growing up in Inglewood, California, there were three constants: hooping, gang banging, and rappingAlthough hstarted on the wrong path of violence, three life-changing moments served to help him choose music instead and to embrace his destiny as the musician now known as Deep. 

The first of his three encounters happened with his girlfriend (now-wife). By his sophomore year in high school, Deep had become more and more entrenched in street life. One day out of the blue, his girlfriend had a heart-to-heart with him. “If you get killed or go to prison, how are we gonna take care of a family?”, she asked him. That was the first eye-opening moment. The second came when he and some friends were confronted by some gang members with guns. Though no shots were fired and no one was hurt from that experience, it was a situation that shocked him to his core and made him wonder if he got killed, would he go to hell? Those thoughts rattled around in his head until his mother one day dragged him to church. He really didn’t want to go, but he went since his mother was so adamant about it. Serving as the final revelation to change his life, the sermon from the preacher that day is still vivid in his memory. He gave his testimony about walking away from a life of crime and street life. Deep realized that if Rev. Jones could do it, he could, too. 

“I never looked back from there,” Deep said. “I had always been a kid who loved music and was really into poetry, but as my life began to change – so did my lyrics. As a result, whenever I would spit – people would respond, “That’s deep!” Everything became deeper the more I looked deep within myself to discover my true character. That’s one of the reasons why I took that as my name because I want my music to represent change and encourage people to look deep within as well. I could go the route of gang banging, or I could go the route of following the Lord. When I made that change, everything got deeper and life started being more potent.” 

Today, Deep brings real life to his music and offers a multifaceted sound and style to complement his deep lyrics. On his most recent album “In Too Deep”, fans can get a bevy of different styles. His opening song, “Going Hard,” is a fusion of Reggae and Hip Hop. He has a Pop groove called “Toast.” He has a love song called “Falling in Love.” And he has a very lyrical track called “My Lyrical Thesis.” And his latest track to hit the airwaves is a Gospel song with an edge called “Nothing’s Impossible.” 

“It’s me telling my story of growing up in Inglewood and how God changed my life,” he said. “I want to show people that even with all the things you go through, with God nothing is impossible. Even if you don’t believe in God, this can be a song that’s just encouraging – whatever you go through, you can get through it. Don’t lose faith. Win or lose that day, keep your head up. It’s powerful, which is what I want my music to be for other people. I make relatable music that challenges people to see a different outlook.” 

Deep said he’s currently at work on a follow-up album called “A Higher Purpose” which will take the lyrical content to the next level and embrace more of the Pop vibes he experimented with on his previous album.

Young King with Big Dreams drops energy-filled new single ‘Off-White’ 

Young King with Big Dreams, also known as Youngkingbd, is an East Coast artist who was born and raised in Lagos, Nigeria. As a kid growing up in Nigeria, Young King was constantly reminded of how talented he was musically by his friends. They would call him the King, and when he came to America at age 14, he fully embraced that moniker and began pursuing a life of music.  

Today, this fast-rising young talent is making a name for himself in the industry with hits like “Antidote” and “Rainstorm,” and he’s about to take his career to the next level with his new hit single “Off-White.” Currently available across all streaming platforms, “Off-White” is a perfect display of this young man’s talent. Opening with a piano intro that sets a light, airy tone throughout the song, Young King soon drops a bouncy beat that lays the perfect foundation for his swaggy flow. The piano melody gives the song a lightness that serves as a perfect companion for the catchy hooks and fun flow.  

“I wanted to capture the different vibes and energy around me at the time of making the song,” Young King said. “I also wanted some catchy parts in the song and I wanted to talk about my lifestyle at the moment, highlighting the things I was doing now compared to how I was before. I put all the different artistic parts of me into one song and then focused the main part on the Melodic Rap. Ultimately, I wanted to showcase the artistic part of me.” 

Young King is one of those rare artists who can literally adjust to any type of beat. He’s been known to hop on Drill music, Rap, R&B, Trap, melodies … anything and everything you can think of. And of course, being originally from Nigeria, he sometimes taps into Afrobeats. More than anything, he likes to meld those genres together to try to find original sounds and styles that are different from anything else out there. And through that work, he has developed his own record label, Music Oven The Label. He’s been able to collaborate with people like Dr. Jay and Al Mojo, and he’s quickly becoming one of the most talked about artists on the East Coast.  

“I just want my music to showcase success,” he said. “How do you level up? That’s the energy of ‘Off-White.’ When you listen, what are you vibing with? I want people to get the energy of being lit. You’re rocking better drips, or you’ve got a nice car, or you’ve got a bad bitch – that’s the energy I want people to get from this.” 

In addition to “Off-White,” Young King has a couple of music videos about to release, and said he’s planning on releasing more music later this year.

Marcus Lane – Going on a Date

Marcus Lane redefines Hip Hop with an uncanny sound on new singles ‘Going on a Date’ and ‘Business Body’ 

Marcus Lane can only be described as an uncanny artist. He puts himself into a seat of professionalism and takes all of the lessons he’s learned from the legends of Hip Hop and then creates his own original sound and vibe for something that is equal parts nostalgic and fresh. His latest single, “Going on a Date” is the perfect example of how Lane offers an old-school feel with a new-school vibe. “Going on a Date” offers a transcendent, melodic sound that will intrigue the listener but is ready made for the ladies. 

“It’s one of those songs that let women know how they can make themselves perfect,” Lane said. “It’s about helping them to be confident and comfortable in their own skin. I always have my way with the women. I always charm my way into their hearts, and guys want to be like me because my style and mannerisms are so hypnotic and effortless. It just comes out naturally. Every time I write music, that’s what it is, and this song is no different. 

Currently available across all streaming platforms, “Going on a Date” is the perfect example of how Lane makes music that’s vibrant on different levels – whether it’s Trap or pure Hip Hop or any other genre. He said he’s going to fill that gap in music that mixes different genres and creates a style that hasn’t yet been identified. That’s why he considers himself to be an uncanny artist – he’s bringing a vibrant vibe on different levels with vocals and melodies that creep into your soul and will be memorable for years to come.  

“My mentality is optimistic and my sound is Tone Rap Natural Melodic that creeps into your mind,” he said. “Sometimes, I will be in an adlib and vocal stacking adlibs that pan from one ear and out the other. It creates a mood – but my music is evolving around the street, glamour, sex and jewels. My music is an enraptured delight that will turn you on when you listen to it “make you feel me”. 

In addition to “Going on a Date,” Lane also has recently released the song “Business Body” which showcases yet another facet of his talented sound and style. As with “Going on a Date,” “Business Body” is a song intended for the ladies. He said it’s a song aimed at women who understand they can use their bodies for their advantage. “It’s like a motto for women”, he said. “Women who understand that their bodies can be used as tools to get what they want.” 

Lane said he’ll follow these singles up with more music and will be dropping a mixtape later this year.

East Coast rapper embraces ‘Borrowed Time’ by launching music career with debut album

HOWARD COUNTY, MD – Self-made rapper, artist, musician and icon-in-the-making Jonathon Griffin – AKA Lor Sosa – is a man making the most of his borrowed time. Growing up on the streets, he’s no stranger to drugs and violence. He’s been in and out of jail multiple times and admits that he’s defied the odds by living much longer than most others who have been entrenched in the street lifestyle. His latest album “Borrowed Time,” is a chronicle of those years and a reflection on some of his more harrowing experiences. At the same time it’s a cautionary tale to anyone else embracing such a violent lifestyle, with songs meant to motivate others away from crime and toward opportunities that can lead to success and good health in the future.  

“I’ve done a lot of things in my life to the point where after getting through some of those things, I’m surprised I was still in it,” Lor Sosa said. “Now when I get up, I don’t take this time for granted. I definitely shouldn’t have made it this far. This album reflects that lifestyle and it’s special because it doesn’t have a single sound. Each song comes with a different type of mood, and overall it will appeal to a few different sub-genres and different pools of audiences. There’s something on there that everyone can rock with.” 

The debut single from the project is a song called “Blink” which features a Drill beat against an upbeat club vibe. Sosa calls it a “shooter type of song” with some clever wordplay and sounds on the hook that makes it great for a club banger. The combination of that with the Drill beat is a perfect example of how Sosa blends genres and uses his creative originality to bring something new to the industry.  

“My ambition is to gain more respect for the musical side of what I do,” he said. “In Hip Hop there’s been a lot of trickle in from Alternative Rock and Indie artists over the past few years.  You can hear it with artists like Lil Uzi and Juice Wrld. I thought that sound was interesting, and I wanted to embrace the challenge of pairing Hip Hop with a more harmonic-type music. I want to push that boundary and cross genres while also telling a dope story. I have things in my past that a lot of people can relate to. I want to dive deeper and create relevant situations in the music that people can relate to. And at the end of the day, I hope people hear my music and say that it made them feel something. I’m providing an experience.” 

Lor Sosa’s music is available across all streaming platforms.
