Based on a True Story
The Brandeesh Bio Brandeesh is the 27 year old rap artist representing the city of Chesapeake with an undeniable and original up tempo flow. His style is a blend of East Coast lyrics and Down South vernacular and bounce. Brandeesh's content is based on social problems in the society we live in today. His strong delivery and lyrical substance places him in a league of his own amongst the elite underground artists in the VA hip-hop scene. Born in a blue collard hard-working house hold failure was never an option. He is a person of persistence. In the mid ninety's with neighborhood friends on a karaoke machine Brandeesh found his calling in life and from there he began a long journey ("On the road to riches and diamond rings"-Notorious B.I.G., you know the rest). In 2002 he joined the Norfolk based rap company Hood Life Cartel lead by Main Train (Train Genevese) and J-Nasty. This was Brandeesh's turning point as a stand-out amongst other incredible emcees such as Don Damarco and Poplar Halls native D. Skinner. With two volumes of the "Crimeline Chronicles" mixtape series under their belts the group fell upon hard times when three of it's members were charged with numerous crimes from assault and robbery to murder. This would put a stop to or slow down the average person but Brandeesh continued forward. In the summer of 2004 Brandeesh was rubbing shoulders with up an up and coming music group called Sound Squad Entertainment. Not yet a member He found himself in their presence. At this time he was still recording with Train Genevese, and they composed a classic mixtape that was never titled but is known in the streets as "the cover with the eyes on it". On that project was the song "Shinning" which caught the attention of the streets and beyond. It received radio airplay and also when he performed it that summer in front of a sold-out Blakely's club crowd won him a trip to Las Vegas with the opportunity to perform for the masses. After this victory Brandeesh asked CEO Zip and President Big Dee (Sound Squad Entertainment) to accompany him as managers. From there Brandeesh proudly became the newest addition into the Sound Squad Entertainment family. Now in 2009 Brandeesh has seven mixtapes completed and an original project in the making. He is the head designer for Sound Squad Entertainment specializing in covers, flyers, and advertising. Still with a firm relationship with Train Genevese and a family bond with his team Sound Squad Entertainment there is nothing in his way to the top. He truly is The Pride of Tidewater.
