Team Next - Back on Deck

             Many people are skilled and talented, but even the hardest working individuals will get slept on or bypassed for someone with less potential or better gimmick. Even so, more props go to artists who stay on the real and raw path. Give respect where respect is due and Team Next deserves it.

Alluding to southern traditions – a water jug meticulously hanging from an old oak tree like mental freedom hangs from the branches of society, theatrical white face paint of the invisible man Ralph Ellison once wrote about; the man who speaks for the people on the lower frequencies – Team Next uses powerful imagery as the force behind their word play. More of a mini movie than a typical music video, T.A. takes center stage, delivering fresh lyricism with metaphorical undertones.

The notion of being back on deck is the idea of being back in the game. Never actually having left the music game, Team Next is back in the game with a different delivery, going beyond pleasing everybody, beyond gimmicks, beyond mainstream, with a rawer message – I’m back on deck; the ace coming for all you lower level jokers.

                With the NEXTing energy of Cease, Llyrik and Youngin , in addition to T Dot’s fire bars, Back on Deck is a showcase of raw underground music. Back on Deck was produced by Leonitus(@DaReal_Leonitis). Visit for more music and videos.
