Midwest artist Real Deal Wit It shares inspiring musical journey with ever-widening global fanbase
AKRON, OH – To understand the music and talent of Midwest artist Real Deal Wit It, you have to understand where he comes from. Living in the streets of Akron, Ohio is already a rough starting place, but add to that a crack-addicted mother and an absent father and it’s easy to see how this young man might be led to a life of drugs and violence. By the age of 14 he was in-and-out of juvenile prison while dodging life-or-death situations on the streets. But through it all, music was his escape. Artists such as Tupac and Tribe Called Quest became sources of refuge for him, and ultimately became the inspiration behind his own creative outlet of songwriting and recording.
Today Real Deal Wit it is a bona fide hit-maker whose star is quickly on the rise. His upcoming new single, “No Capp,” is an eagerly anticipated track that showcases his unique sound and style. It’s a street banger, but with heart behind it and a message that he hopes will resonate with others living on the street in ways that motivate them to pursue a different walk of life.
“I took it back to the hood with this one,” he said. “As soon as you hear it and hear the 808s, your head starts bobbing and you’re gonna put it on repeat. Ultimately it’s about what it means to be a street dude and living the street life while also trying to live the better life you said you were gonna live.”
It’s the first single off his forthcoming album, “WHIZ,” which is slated to drop later this year. Serving as an anagram for Writing Hits In my Zone, the album also pays homage to his late brother who was murdered last year. His nickname was also Whiz. The project is one that will further showcase the natural talent of this fast-rising young artist, and continue the momentum that started with his previous album, “Real Estate,” which is currently available across all streaming platforms.
“When I make music, you’re not gonna be able to box me into one specific category,” Real Deal Wit It said. “I’m somebody who’s bringing a lot of lyrical content back into the game. I’m talking about situations and things I’ve been through, or others have been through, in ways that are fun and inspiring. I could write about anything. I might write about my favorite barbecue chips if that’s what I need to write about. Whatever is in the moment that inspires me, that’s what I’ll roll with. A lot of people don’t expect that from me because I come from a background that’s very serious. I can make music that talks about that, but I also make music about things I’m trying that’s new and different. And I’m trying to make a new life instead of celebrating the street life and those serious things. If you put it in your mind first that it’s something you want to do, and make sure it’s in your heart and follow through, you can accomplish anything.”

Journey of self-healing serves as foundation for new music career from East Coast artist Just Dom
BRONX, NY – Dominique “Just Dom” Cox is a man whose spiritual journey has taken him far over the years. From a life that brushed up against violence and drugs on the streets to a spiritual awakening that today encapsulates a lifestyle that motivates all others around him, this young man has a story that’s inspiring. He’s sharing that story through song with his debut single “Dying To Live,” which is currently available across all streaming platforms.
Written in response to the dark times so many people around the world find themselves in these days, the song pushes a message of motivation to all those who are thinking about quitting or who lack self-discipline to see things through. It’s a song that born from his own struggle of trying to figure out what he was going to do with his life, and ultimately discovering his life and his purpose.
“I’ve been doing massage therapy for almost 10 years, and that started when I decided to change my life and understand that I’m in control,” Just Dom said. “Growing up I had a rough upbringing, and I did some things I wasn’t so proud of. I got to a point where I had to ask myself: Am I dying to live or living to die? That’s the message I’m pushing with this song. The words and things I think sand say are direct manifestations of me and what I want for myself. You can take back your power and understand how powerful your words are and believe in yourself. That’s the whole purpose of this song.”
It’s not just the words that are powerful, either. King Dom said the video that will be released in coming weeks will serve as a visual motivation that’s the perfect accompaniment to the song. Visually, it will show people a transition from the times they’re in right now to a time of freedom represented by nature and being outdoors and not having to wear masks all the time. For those illustrative times of nature scenes were shot in Woodstock, and those moments will be juxtaposed against scenes of Just Dom in on the train station on Grant Avenue in Queens, as well as on the E Train in Long Beach.
The combination of visual art with his thought-provoking lyrics makes for a deeply conscious musician who is set to leave a definitive mark in the music industry. Following “Dying To Live,” Just Dom said he’s preparing to release a second single called “Hood Cry,” featuring an artist named Castro, which is another empowering and motivational song for the masses.
“My music is more conscious and ultimately I hope is known for being more vibe music,” he said. “There’s not anything you can put in a specific genre, it’s just feel-good music. It’s the kind of music you can drive in the car and it feels good to turn on, or you can play it in the morning and it motivates you for the day. That’s the kind of sound and inspirational vibe I want to continue to produce.”
