4 Deep

Biography

4 Deep was the Big Boss’ (originally of OG Style) second group, linking up with Koo-Rod & Klas-1 and releasing a handful of H-Town classics.

They released their debut Another Day In The Jungle on Power Artist in ‘93. What’s Really Goin’ On is their second (and is only the second best rap tape with that name). It placed a handful of remixed cuts from the first record alongside new recordings. “Rollin’ 4 Deep” gained it’s share of notoriety popping up on various screw tapes and while it set a standard as content, (a decidedly gangster sentiment, as you may have guessed), the production was more mellow than the rest of the album. Elsewhere Big Boss explores the darker side of his production, at the same time drawing from the sample heavy and almost playful approach of his OG Style work.

Like frequent collaborators UGK, 4 Deep were part of a transitional era in Texas rap, extending the raw early sound that artists like Geto Boys and S.P.C. pioneered into the current post-screw era that is being primed by the media to be the next big thing in the rap world.
