With his latest track, ‘Deep Feelings’, packing a powerful punch, ADQ 1982 is an artist whose storytelling ability will leave a lasting impression.
An emotional journey that documents the tragic life of an abused girl, ‘Deep Feelings’ narrates how childhood abuse can cause a devastating butterfly effect for victims. Raw and uncensored, the LA rapper preaches his words of wisdom over a bluesy hip-hop number, echoing the emotional content.
‘Deep Feelings’ follows the journey of a girl abused from a young age, who eventually turns to drugs and operating as a sex worker. Let down by every man that was supposed to be a positive influence in her life, she ends up on a dangerous and self-destructive path. From prostitution to a prosecution, the protagonist in ADQ’s story eventually ends up falling into a police trap. The narrative’s context may be alien to some, but very real to others.
With a name that’s aptly abbreviated from ‘Another Dope Quality’, and 1982 his birth year, this emerging lyricist is creating a blaze on the West Coast hip-hop scene. With many conventional rappers depicting lifestyles of money, women, and fame, ADQ 1982 depicts the real and gritty truth of what life can really be like for some.
