Born on August 31st, 1988 in Fort Lauderdale Florida, Deep was born to Haitian parents. He was his mothers first child, and his fathers fourth. His mom named him Winston Petit-frere, which means a little brother.
Deep had a difficult childhood moving often around Broward County due to the drugs and violent crimes in the neighborhoods. In 1996 his father died, Deep was only 8 years old when this happened. A year later, Deep began to get influenced by the street life and older street thugs.
It seemed as Deep became angry and careless after the devastating death of his father. He started skipping school and continued running down the wrong path. Not to long later he got into serious trouble.
Deep was 11 years old when he began to write poems about how he felt. He wrote about what he was going through and the struggles of his mother being a single parent. He felt it was a natural transition when he turned his poems into rap lyrics. He knew he wanted to rap, but really didn’t take it as serious as he believe he should have.
Deep was once with a group called “Y.T.G”, which is an acronym for “Young Thug Gangstas. Y.T.G. was not really a rap group, but more of a street group (not with a gang – just to be clear). This group more-so made a name for themselves in the streets. They were in and out of the studio here and there, but not doing so much. There were many represented Y.T.G., but only four rappers were official members of the group at the time, and Deep was one of the rappers.
Deep started falling more and more into the street life and continued chasing fast money. At the age nearly 16, Deep into more serious trouble. He ended up some what turning his life around from the experience though. He wrote lyrics and poems to pass the time he had to face for the trouble he got into. Quickly after, Deep grabbed attention of many because he would write all day. One of his turning moments included a performance for Black History Month. From then, Deep started to chase his dream as a rapper, and beyond.
In short due time Deep met local artist though a friend he knew. These guys had their own studio in Pompano Beach FL, which was convenient for Deep. They were a group of three, B.F.G. also known as “Back Field Gangsters”. Deep was in the studio with just one of the artist and the engineer for the group. The engineer played one of the instrumentals for Deep and asked Deep to engage with the track. The engineer hit record and Deep started laying down lyrics from the top of his head. Deep kept going and it was shocking to the engineer! They recorded the song and Deep named it “In The Ghetto, We Don’t Last Long”. That’s when Deep was officially recruited to B.F.G.
Deep did his first performance ever with B.F.G. inside of a night club called Banana Boat. They were on a roll, making songs that were a hit locally, and performing often. B.F.G felll off due to financial problems; not everyone had a source of income. And everything came to a sudden halt.
A while after the fallout among B.F.G., Deep started playing his old music. His music was over heard by a guy that was very impressed by Deep’s music and he received help. From then, Deep recorded his first video and continued doing more shows.
As Deep’s fan base continued to grow, more connections started to happen. Deep allegedly started a group called “WeFilthyRich Ent”. Deep says he wasn’t getting the credit that he should; he felt he wasn’t getting pushed enough. Deep felt the work wasn’t consistent too. The person who allegedly agreed to help push Deep, started to focus on their own talents. Deep decided to do his own thing and leave the group to continue pushing himself.
Since then Deep has started his own record label, called T.G.R, an acronym for “The Gr8est Records”. Deep has now decided to go independent and is now more professional than ever.
Deep is still young and believes there is plenty of life left to live, so he knows his story and his road are no where close to being over.
