Poet Deep is one of our featured July Artist of the Week. Here is a quick question and answer with the talent, conscious Brother from Baltimore.
HHH: Tell us a little about yourself.
Poet Deep: I'm a artist on a mission to provide practical solutions to the issues that people face, especially the Urban community.
HHH: That is definitely where the need is greatest. We appreciate you very much. When did you first fall in love with Hip Hop?
Poet Deep: I first fell in love with hip hop when I heard Rob Base "It takes two", my favorite artist is K-Rino because he embodies many great traits of what a true emcee is (lyricism, storytelling, original concepts, and commitment to work).
HHH: When did you realize the power of Hip Hop's platform and did it motivate you in anyway? If so, what way?
Poet Deep: I think when I realized the power Tupac's music had over people I saw how artist have the ability to connect with their audience on a deep level and even play a role in how they live and the decisions they make.
HHH: So true. Artist now a day don't seem to understand that. How does what you create make the world a better place?
Poet Deep: My music encourages involvement to fight against injustice and endurance to withstand the downhills of life. I inspire people to be better and show decency to others.
HHH: Thank you for breaking "the cycle of abuse " That is what I call the issues in the urban community. If we can teach, we must. It's our responsibility as adults. So, what are your plans for the future?
Poet Deep: My plans are to continue doing music but focusing on performances/workshops discussing psychological and political issues in depth, I also plan to form a group to assist young men with being more resourceful and provide them with alternatives to change their lives.
HHH: Your efforts are so appreciated. Your level of commitment is apparent. Ya know artists like you prove Hip Hop is still alive. What is.something you want the world to know.
Poet Deep: I have to do this! In this world you're either a victim or victor. HHH: Us and people like us will ensure that success. Thank you so much for your time and the work you put back into the community!
