Marked for success and determined to achieve it, Deep and Kamla Punjabi have been on a road less traveled. Years of dedication and timeless nights spent burning the midnight oil; these two are by far the undisputable champions of the Punjabi rap game. Deep started rapping at the age of 11 and has opened for the likes of Scarface, Slim Thug, Bone Thugs & Harmony, Lil Keke, Paul Wall, Chamillionaire, Papa Reu, UGK, Mike Jones and many more. Kamla Punjabi has been singing traditional folk songs at festivals since the tender age of 12. If creativity was the objective they would be named the greatest of intellects, but its much more than that. Since the beginning, it wasnt only about being on the mic and being heard, but rather making good quality heartfelt music. Their music is a bridge between generations.
