Introducing… Diezel P!

Posted on April 4, 2010 by


I would like everyone to check out this artist out from Portland named Diezel P. As a rapper he has worked with greats such as Slick Rick, The Beatnuts, Zion I, E-40 and many others. He is a talented emcee that has used rap to combine his love for writing and his ideas as an activist.  He creates good sounding music that also delivers a message.  I am going to post some information about a charity event that he is running after the jump along with some videos and download links to check out the music.  The two songs I have included are off of his 2008 project “Write Now” which can be purchased here.

Diezel P will be hosting The Hoop Hop Basketball Game for Health and Wellness on Sunday April 11th at 1:00 pm at the Rose Garden in Portland. The event is free and open to all ages. Some of Portland’s most notable Hip Hop artists will be competing in an entertaining full length 5 on 5 (Two Teams of 10 players) basketball game.  There will be performances from local R&B and Hip Hop artists, break dancers, and the Blazer Dancers.  They will have DJ Nykon playing nothing but local music and raffles for the audience to win prizes.

Here is what Diezel P had to say, “I am a socially conscious Hip Hop artist and as I have been doing my research on modern issues in society, I saw that Health and Fitness was a huge issue in the Urban Community.  It seems that only Fast Food, Alcohol, and Soft Drink ads are geared towards the inner city, and we never see any health food or fitness ads that relate to our culture.  So I am collaborating with some local organizations that represent intricate areas of Healthy Living, and bringing them to the Hip Hop community.  Multnomah County Health Department will be promoting safe sex and providing HIV/AIDS resources at the event, Herbal Life represents nutritional education and healthy dieting, What’s Happening PDX Magazine is an Eco-Friendly Urban promoting resource, and 4 Point Play is a city league basketball league representing exercise and fitness.”
