An artist that embodies authenticity and lives with his heart on his sleeve, Prabh Deep has established himself as one of the finest poets in the South Asian region – offering an incisive and honest critique of the socio-economic circumstances that govern life in Delhi’s streets. Born and raised in Tilak Nagar, Prabh’s music has reclaimed the narrative of hedonism and consumerism that is often found in Punjabi music – showcasing the language’s affinity for telling stories that affect society at it’s core.
In October 2017, Prabh Deep released Class-Sikh, his autobiographical debut album. The 12-track LP is a collection of stories that have shaped and defined Prabh’s life in Tilak Nagar – one that you’ll be hard pressed to find in your local newspaper or television channel. On Class-Sikh, Prabh teamed up with Sez, India’s answer to Dr. Dre and Sounwave, to create a sonic aesthetic that screams Tilak Nagar – accurately reflecting contrast between the harshness and warmth to be found in its streets.
Prabh encapsulates the Indian hip-hop community’s defining characteristic – staying true to your roots and a drive to reach to the very top. Check out this deep dive into his life by the folks at GQ India here: https://www.gqindia.com/content/what-makes-prabh-deep-indian-raps-next-big-thing/
