Deebo Lotti- Damien aka, “Deebo Lotti Maserati” Newsome. Is an emerging artist from Phoenix, Arizona and the CEO of Every Stack Counts Entertainment. His sound is a unique blend of his west coast and midwest influences, since he was born and raised in Milwaukee, WI.

Moving to Phoenix, Az at age twelve and becoming a resident of Phoenix, Az.  Damien had attended  school at Madison #1 which is part of the Madison school district and then attended Camelback high school. Damien was raised in a christian household and was through most of his young adult life. 

“Being a part of the Arizona hip hop movement was a  blessing.” Damien said. His mother was an R & B singer. Damien says ” I used to vibe with her, started out making beats and freestyling. Then eventually moved into putting out demos to the neighborhood”.  With the closet booth and catchy hooks, he began his journey into the music industry. One night at a drive thru liquor store Damien heard a car listening to one of his demos. “To hear my music being played out a car stereo was the motivation- in east Phoenix”.  

“Traphouse- was the influence- said I had to be more consistent”.

His talent has allowed him to collaborate with industry heavyweights like: Kevin Gates, Philthy Rich, Nino Brown, DJ Drama and more.

Short interview with Deebo- 

Are you still coaching the boys basketball league?

“I’m connected,  my baby boy is still playing- I haven’t been coaching in a few years. I give it up for the coaches. It takes a lot of time.  I’m good at coaching and understand the game of basketball.  As I got closer to the college league – I lost the love for it because of politics. My son plays with a team that’s endorsed by Adidas. I know a lot of kids that can make it to the NBA.  My son has been playing since he was eight years old. Consistency is the key”.

What is the inspiration behind you, to do what you do? – Rapping, Business and coaching?

Coaching – “My kids, my son- I played high-level basketball. What also influenced me was the coaches at that time weren’t teaching simple things as lay up lines”.

Business–  “Had to take care of the kids.” 

Rapping – “Was a hobby- I grew up on hip hop music. It came naturally”.

Heard you were retiring from the rap game- Is this true?

“Aww- man I’m getting older. I spent a lot of money on my brand. I want to get into more media stuff and sign a few people to my label. You know a behind the scenes type thing”.

“I have a project going, like a nipsey thing. Nipsey was my inspiration”- (Deebo Lotti).

 Deebo Lotti Maserati,  is an inspiration to us all- Deebo is currently putting together a special installment of the “Gas” series that will include an entire box set of all the “Gas” projects. Offering a “Gas Galore” Jersey, thumb drive, autograph poster and an album release party at  a cost of one thousand dollars. Deebo’s label is only printing one hundred copies of this last album. 

In today’s society, life is mixed with a lot of different cultures. Hip-Hop is a culture that tells a story of life. Sometimes it’s a story of life in the struggle. Or sometimes it’s a story of life in the streets. Whatever story the spirit brings is Knowledge. We should learn from it.
