Deep C

Don’t get it twisted I’m not writing about the gang Deep C out of Richmond California. I’m writing about this 30 something California rapper who grew up in East L.A. Deep C had the music bug in is blood at a young age. Deep C’s father was the leader of the 1970’s funk band Edwin Star and the Dynamic Concepts. Deep C grew up listening to some of the original heavy hitters of rap like NWA, Public Enemy, Run DMC, Tupac, Sugar Hill Gang, Grandmaster Flash and Curtis Blow. Growing up in East L.A. Deep C saw a lot of life that was bad and his music reflects his experiences. His song “Genetikz” the title of his album is a very confident and inspiring song. These are the songs from this album that are going on my playlist “4”, “Sun And Moon Featuring: Camille White” and “Genetikz”. Deep C is based in the Bay Area of Northern California now. He is a true lyricist that tells a story in his songs. Tune into Streetwise Radio and listen to songs from Deep C. You can also listen to Streetwise Radio on MyGen365, Live365, Athena365, iTunes and Pandora.

Soul Square

These hip hop dudes from France are in my opinion are better than some of the mainstream hip hop artists. Arshitect, Guan Jay & PermOne got together in 2005 at first they called themselves Drum Brothers but they settled on Soul Square. Soul Square released their album entitled “Live & Uncut” in 2010. I really like this album these dudes it is a combination of jazz, soul and funk. Some of my favorite songs are “Love Break”, “Change”, “Can't We (Just Chill)”, “Living the Dream“ “Flesh Air” and “Turn This Party Out”. We need more hip-hop like this something with substance. Tune into Streetwise Radio and listen to songs from these French hip-hop dudes they are marvelous. You can also listen to Streetwise Radio on Pandora, iTunes, MyGen365, Live365 and Athena365.
