We're on Twitter: @DeepFoundation New EP with Hydroponikz & Generation ILL AVAILABLE NOW on CDBaby & iTunes
Deep Foundation, consisting of 3 emcees representing Queens and New Jersey, remains a benchmark in socially relevant hip hop. With lyrics based on their lives and personal experiences, CeeJay, ILL Poe and MUG Shot have given voice to an under-represented Filipino American demographic, and seek to imbue their compatriots, both young and old, with a renewed sense of cultural pride. Deep Foundation has brought its boom-bap era influenced hip-hop to domestic and international audiences since 2002. With the release of their debut album, “The First Draft,” and groundbreaking music videos for "Children of the Sun" and "Sleep,” Deep Foundation has captured the hearts and imaginations of fans worldwide. In addition to their musical success, the media has also taken note of their drive and originality, having been featured in Filipinas Magazine, the cover of FOKAL Magazine, The Philippine Daily Inquirer, The Myx Channel, PBS, The Filipino Channel, Spike TV and HBO. They have released a brand new EP entitled "Deep Foundation & Hydroponikz present Generation ILL" which is available now on iTunes and CD Baby.
"Generation ILL" is a snapshot of today's world, the events that occur within it and the experiences of the people involved. The 10-track offering features collaborations with singer-songwriter Melissa Polinar, UK Beatbox Champion MC Zani, and West Coast emcees Bambu and Rocky Rivera. The EP also includes three bonus cuts: two tracks from Deep Foundation's debut album "The First Draft" remixed by Generation ILL and a previously unreleased track featured in Deep Foundation's first music video "A Place Called Home."
