Playya 1000 And The Deeksta
Playya 1000 and The Deeksta is a hip-hop/rap duo from Tulsa, Oklahoma. As members of the local underground group DC Boys, they began recording tracks at a faster pace than the rest of the group, resulting in numerous songs that featured production of The Deeksta and rhymes of Playya 1000.
The first Playya 1000 and The Deeksta release, "Reality", was a hit record in the streets despite little radio support. The street buzz from "Reality" paved the way for nationwide distribution and their second release, "Blame it On Society?", which sold roughly 20,000 copies and was featured in The Source Magazine. Fans outside of Oklahoma began to take notice of the California/Midwest hybrid sound that would make Playya 1000 and The Deeksta internationally known. Riding the success of "Blame it on Society", the dynamic duo released "Mo' Drama" in 1994, considered by many fans to be an underground classic. The album featured the summer anthem ‘Sunday Afternoon’ and sold 30,000 units. "Sunday Afternoon" has been a fixture on Tulsa radio stations since its release and still gets the party jumping to this day. After working with other artists such as Deco D, Ghetto Kaos, Big Bur-Na and 5-0 Hustlas, they released their fourth album, "Foe Da Mill Ticket".
After a nine year break from the game, Playya 1000 and the Deeksta returned with a new passion and purpose and released "20/20 Vision", a combination of the classic Playya 1000 G Funk mixed with a new school Dirty South vibe. That brings us to present day the new release "Cover Me I'm Going In" picks up where "20/20 Vision" left off, but is definitely more present day ready.
