Doing what god meant me to do. Making something out of nothing. Music. Helping people reach their full potential.
why the name Too Deep?
Its actually spelled DJ II D.E.E.P and its an acronym, To Disintegrate Evil Educate People; but it has various meanings
in various situations.
Why make mix tapes?
Several reasons. It is a way to introduce new artist, sounds, and concepts to people. For a dj, it can be a platform for
unabashed expression. You can play a song exactly when, where and how you choose. Even with all the controversy,
there’s still money to be made via mixtapes. And for businesses, its an excellent “out of the box” way to promote. To
me, its right next to the T Shirt as far as best ways to promote your business from a grass roots level. If people like
your cd, they have your commercial. If people burn it or steal it, they steal your commercial with it. Lastly, its an excellent way for djs to market themselves and stay relevant.
What do you believes makes you stand out?
First and foremost because I remain to be the individual god made me. So many people in life( and especially in the industry ) desire to be carbon copies when the reality is, at best Id be a parade brand DJ Khaled. However, he could never do II D.E.E.P better than II D.E.E.P.
I am a person of and for the people. With that being said, yes I am a hustler, but there are some things I
will not trade for a dollar. My name has to stay “UGK” in the streets. Meaning, when you hear my name it
must evoke thoughts of legitimacy and consistent dependability.
As a dj( which is what I’m most known for ) I am set apart by the fact that I’m an actual artist/mc. So when I
dj I tie songs together by not only tempo but sometimes by what’s said in the song. When new artist bring
me music, if there’s something wrong with the song I can usually tell them what it is where the average dj is either gonna say its hot or its not. And as a club MC, since I can actually rap all my ad libbing and paraphrasing has a musicians timing. Sometimes to the point where people say stuff I said in the club when they hear the song anywhere else. Lastly, I have my own way of speaking and my own slang. 8 times out
of 10 you’ve heard someone say one of my phrases and didn’t know it came from me. Like “Income Tax Baller”.
Tell me about RBI promotions
RBI promotions is a company started by myself and a select group of friends a few years ago to promote
events, goods, services and music. Although we are most known for the “PLAYAS GET CHOSE PISCES
What made you create P.A.P?
I didn’t create P.A.P…….lol. That’s the creation of a friend of mine, Mrs. Sonia Parker. I have collaborated
with her on several occasions. My sister-n-grind ( FIYA aka FAT ALBERTA ) introduced me to her. I was
looking for an organization that would allow me to deal with/ donate directly to the people. Alot of so
called charitable organizations are more concerned with making the money stick to the gum under the
Why stay in Houston when you know there are other states where artist have a easier time getting noticed?
Wow… good question! lol… First and foremost, everyone starts out with a vision. What they want to accomplish and how they want to do it. There’s several times I considered moving to Atlanta. Why didn’t I?
1) Because making starting here for me is just as important as making it. Its gotta go in this order: Jensen
Park / Trinity Garden / Northside / Houston / Texas then beyond. Making it for me is not just being financially successful, but planting or replanting seeds in the city to make sure my city can eat long after arthritis wont let me dj and I’ve progressed to something else.
2) My bro ( DJ YOUNG S.A.M.M ) asked me not too, lol. TrillTalk
What’s the motivation for everything that you do?
Doing what god said. Becoming the financial cornerstone for everyone with my last name, like Duponts
and Rockafeller’s. Setting a new mark of progress for myself, every time.
What is something that people would be surprised to know about you?
- I’ve been reading on a college level since 3rd grade.
- 2. I’ve been hustling my whole life. When I used to go trick-or-treating, Id eat 3 pieces of it and sell
the rest of the full grocery bag.
- I’ve literally saved lives, I once saved a baby from getting hit by a car.
God keeps placing me in positions to save people.
What are your views when it deals with continuing arts in our schools? Should they stay or continue to be taken out of schools due to budgets?
I learned how to count musically in school. I think that music and art gives kids a vision of what goes on
or what they could achieve outside of the ghetto. There’s so many people out there doing music in so
many ways, maybe they should explore alternate means. I wouldn’t mind volunteering, and i know I’m not
the only one. But on the flipside…..the last time they took music/art out of schools, hip hop was born. And I don’t know where Id be without hip-hop. Because I was never meant to have a 9 to 5. And all the entrepreneurs where I’m from sell dope.
If you could create a concert tour who would be in your line up and why?
LL Cool J( the reason I rap ), Krino( most underrated Houston rapper, excluding nobody ), UGK( R.I.P
Chad L Butler ), Beatking( The new and improved Lil Jon ), Papa Rue( most original I’ve ever heard in
Houston and he has a vault full of unreleased Gems ), BDBO( thats my team and there’s limitless talent in my camp), DJ II D.E.E.P( Have you heard me, lol), Zro( Top 3 in Houston period ), Candi Redd( Best female I ever heard out of Houston ), KEKE and FAT PAT( You have to put them together because they were at their best when they were pushing each other lyrically), CHAMILLIONAIRE AND PAUL WALL
( Together, they were unstoppable). I can go forever on that 1….lol
What is one question you wish people would ask you?
All the shit people assume about me. Ask me. Im different…plain and simple. So 8 out of 10 times you’re
gonna be wrong if you assume about me. So just ask.
If you could speed up time 10 years from now and look back what do you hope to see?
Entertainment / Hip-hop hubs: NY, CA, ATL, HOU 2. My family is straight 3. My daughter picked up where I left off. 4. DJs respected in Houston. 5. Four Critically Acclaimed fiction novels and a children’s book series 4. 3 Critically acclaimed albums 6. Being saved( Number 1 on my list ). 7. 4 Movies written/directed by me
The event came together by chance. The owner was looking for a performance based event to replace “Real Talk Tuesdays”
at Mr. A’s, which was primarily a poetry event. I didn’t want to try to duplicate what my O.G.( Black Snow ) had created, so I
decided instead to create what is now “SHOW & PROVE”.
How long has it been running?
For roughly 3 yrs.
What area of Houston is it located?
It started at The Mac Bar( 13105 Veterans Memorial )
What are the aspects of this event that stands out from other events?
It gets results. If you are serious about your craft; and have the material to back it, you are guaranteed to leave enriched
by the “S&P” experience. It is also one of few events where up and comers get opportunities to rub shoulders with successful people in various aspects of entertainment. This includes radio artist, video directors, managers, musicians, photographers, play writes, authors, and venue owners.
Describe the show.
It is unique in virtually every way. The 1st half is the Open Mic. The 2nd half is the Showcase. Every first Tuesday
we present independent videos that are aired in the venue over the clubs system. The 4th Tuesday the best artist
of the last 3 weeks perform for cash and a marketing and promotion package. I ( DJ II D.E.E.P ) am the host. The
Co-Host is a very talented RnB vocalist by the name of Tashay Wiggins. She was featured on the RnB mixtape
“Red Heels N D Air II”. Providing the soundtrack is one of the newest members of DJZNDAHOOD, DJ LOKO. He is
also a talented producer. E Lew and the 3PEmages crew will be providing photographic coverage and sponsor a
free photo shoot for the finale winners.
Do you have any other events besides Tuesdays?
I have several projects in the works. In September I do an event called “Sucker Free September” which is
geared towards introducing new music and community service. In October I will be doing the 2nd Annual
“BARBERS & STYLIST BASH” geared toward celebrating barbers, stylist, nail technicians and make up
artist. In December I will be doing the 3rd annual “GREAT CAKE EXCHANGE” toy drive. Other events to
Is this the type of venue that would fit book signings to release parties to stage plays?
Yes. I want this to be an avenue for all serious artist, be it vocal or visual. Vendors of all types are welcome as
well. My goal is that if you are serious about what you do as an artist and are lacking in any area, this will be the pool of resources to dive into. We are open to exhibitions,album/cd/mixtape/ book release events, company/website/product launch parties and more.
What do you want your event to stand for when people leave it & talk about
it to someone who has never been?
I want the artist to feel they were made better by participating. I want this to be one of the remedies for the ailments of the Houston entertainment infrastructure. I want the audience to feel as though they didn’t pay enough for what they saw. I want this event to be the launching pad for some of the best future entertainers this city
has to offer.
What do you want people to remember about the event that will always make your show stand out?
I want them to remember that DJ II D.E.E.P cared about the artist and the hype was real.
Describe the type of artist your show brings to the stage.
Show and Prove is geared towards Singers, Poets, MCs, and Comedians.
How affordable is it to book at the location?
The owner and I have an understanding, lol.
