US-based hip-hop artist G-Deep’s new music video Thumka to debut exclusively on Dekkho
Mumbai: As hip-hop artist G-Deep’s latest track Thumka gets ready to release, fans can catch an exclusive two-day premiere release of the music video only on Dekkho, the leading online streaming platform, from June 21. The song is a hip-hop tribute by G-Deep to his motherland which compares the simple yet poignant things that make India greater than other countries, with a message for the youngsters to stay motivated and excel as a nation.
A multitalented artist with singing, song writing, composing, and music production credits under his belt, G-Deep was born in Punjab and moved to the US as a young boy with a passion to entertain the world with his music. His debut album, Sher Punjabi, was released in 2008 on Times Music, making him the first US-based hip-hop artist to be signed on by the music company.
Commenting on the announcement, Aashna Kothari, Head of Content Operations, Dekkho said, “While many South Asian artists have emerged from the UK, G-Deep is perhaps one of the very few Indian artists to come out of the US. He is an artist who displays great dedication towards his music and is on his way to make a strong impact on the desi hip-hop music industry. Despite his international fame, G-Deep’s new song demonstrates that his music has its roots deep in India and that he is still extremely emotional about his homeland. We are sure Dekkho users will love this new track and appreciate the chance to watch the music video on the platform before anywhere else.”
Mandar Thakur, COO of Times Music said, “After his debut with Times Music, this is our second collaboration together. Being a hip-hop artist from USA in India, G Deep brings in an unmistakable desi touch to his music which is always received well by our listeners.”
G-Deep is also the first South-Asian artist to collaborate with hip-hop legends like Mobb Deep & Wu Tang Clan for singles featuring on his Hindi album O Billo. Besides his international music projects, G-Deep has also sung and composed the music for popular Punjabi films like Naughty Jatts and RSVP.
