an instrument or play sports I was given the freedom to do things that interested me Tm afraid that if I was forced to leam how to play an instrument I would've just grown to resent it and perhaps I wouldn't be participating in this interview now Empowered by the ability to choose his own path Deez also benefitted from a carte blanche approach toward music A baking soda and vinegar binnd of lyrical and musical influences resulted in the developimant of Rob Deez's volcanic performance style I remember liking Kris Kross Das Efx and NKOTB as a kid As I got older my taste in music T UDN Jees

iving Since 2004 be has worked at Scripps Merey Hospital starting in an entry-level position and working his way up to endoscopy technician I was looking for a job and my former girlfriend's sister told me she could get me a job doing what she did I didn't know what it entailed I just knew that it was super close to where I üved it was at the hospital I was bom at and I'd get to wear scrubs 1 had to drive up to Temecula for the inter- view and the night beforehand I had lost my voice during a performance of The Wizard of Oz at the Saville Theatre on the City College campus I was the cowardly lion of course I got the job due to my kick-ass personality The job basically consisted of ordering and stocking supplies throughout the hospital Everything from ace bandages to urinals at Best John Hull& Isac Cheong Broni Kelea Little and Josh Damigo We all know each other's stulf so well it just toms into a giant mutical orgy WORKS JDn No genre boundaries mean rio style limita- tions resulting in mass appeal T can play the same show in fTent of many diferent crowds and walk away knowing the crowd dug it Everyone enjoys laughing I believe that that more than anything is why Im able to play for pretty much After doing that for two yuars a position opened up in endoscopy One of the nurses encouraged me to apply for it Once again I didn't know what it entailed but I kmew it paid more and had a better schedule Turns out I was gonna be cauterizing bleeding sites and taking biopsies-you know typ- ical hospital jargon Anyway they trained me on the job and now seven years later I'm telling you about it My day consists of setting rooms up interacting with patients doctors and nurses tak- ing biopsies cannulating bile ducts deploying stents extracting gallstones and fine needle aspi- rations during endascopic ultrasounds I love the job because it's close to home it pays well and it's rewarding Making a difference in people's lives and what not One of my favorite things about my job has got to be the look on an old person's face when you cover them up with a toasty warm blan- ket It's tike the greatest thing they've ever experi- enced You can see it in their eyes To the average observer the world of hospitals and scrubs and endoscopy departments doesn't exactly scream LOL And to the average musician daytime employment is often seen as an obligation to suffet throggh in order to make ends meet But Deez's observation skills are above average he manages to fertilize the most sterile of environments with his signature brand of funny His song Day Job exemplifies a natural ability to bridge the gap between fun and the mundane On a side note I just created a new an overnight backpackung trip through a slot canyon in Utah e few nights in Tosamite win ming in the Merced getting eaten alive by mos- quitos enjoying a thunderstorm while drinking red wine from a Nalgene bottle in the shadow of the most impressive Half Dome Il leave out the part about the beer the shortcut and the park ULTRAPURE SOLUTIONS In many tracks he simultaneously walks the line between comedy and hip hop embodying char- acteristics of the self-deprecating comedian anstage any crowd Deez's scene-hopping gives him a unique per- spective and ability to observe the cultire of vari- ous pockets of San Diego music I asked him to share his insights The hip hop scenẹ One of my favorite things about hip hop is the collaboration taking place Multiple lyricists on the same song each with a different style delivery and point of view Each song is like a musical buffet The singer-songwriter scene One thing I really like about the singer-songwriter scene is how sup- portive of each other everyone is Some of my best friends are other musicians I've met along the way I wouldn't trade my relationships with these people for anything in the world Okay maybe I'd trade if for a full rack of baby back ribs at Phil's BBQ but Waking up under the toilet bowl that's just how 1 roll No memory of the night before that's just how I roll My chest's scraped up and my shirt's got a hole that's just how I roll iew Tangers Whether onstage or in the wilderness Deez makes sure to sunound himself with good com- pany He reflects The friends that I've made in the music scene mean the world to me Some of Enough with the metaphors Born in an actu- hospital San Diego's Scripps Mercy to actual arents Gary Robert Lyons Robby for short was ised in North Park by Debra Louise Schmidt and ary Keith Lyons in a typical working class home My mom is a jack of all retal She's worked REL the San Diego Zoo the Padres most of e stores in the Misnion Valleg Mali and the ard Rock Cafe She currently works at the Omni ntel My dad is collecting retirement from both e US Navy and the state park system He's irmently making some extra spending money by aching a motorcycle safety course and by driv- ig a school bus 1 was afraid of ay dad growing p mostly because he enforced the rules and I an't able get swray with as much when he was ound But since ie was in the Mavy he warn't yound much But onne I moved out my dad and I ecame best friends It doesn't even feel like a atherson relationahip Ir fnelo like we're just a ouple of buds whợve known each other for a ong time We can taik about liberally anything gathet without fear of judgment t's pretty ool My mom works all the time Too much F'm and the über-confident rapper I own the microphone it's mine alone king on my throne Try to invade my zone Il break your dome so take it home MC's just b*tch and moan so I flip the pitch and switch the tone I'm original kids ain't no clone just me and hip hop here all alone How I Roll from Trademiark Infringement My First CD my best memories are things we've done togeth- er From climbing a fire escape in New York with Josh Damigo to exploring a mine shaft in Death Valley with Kenny Eng to driving through Vegra at 4 am and ariving in Zion National Park just in time to see the sunrise Good times I look for- ward to many more AXEC erpanded to incorparate Nirvana the Offspring Blink 182 Snoop Dogg Eminem Drum & Bass and pretty much everything from the '40s 50s and '60s I tarted taking lyrics a little more seriously when I started istening to Wu-Tang Clan that's also about the time I started rappingfree styling with friends in my garage Around this time I was also teaching myself guitar chords hy learning how to play Sublime songs Td say Wu-Tang and Sublime are my two biggest influences Settling on Deez as his rap surname Rob Dogg and Spitz were other options that never stuck he looked to the Wu-Tang Clan as inspiration for his lyrical prowess t wasn't until I started litening to Wa-Tang that my lyricism was kicked into high gear I was inspired by the clever word play metaphors and punch lines Dventually my thyming gained the approval of my friends in the garage And I can't wait for more stories Erom Rob Deez whether its eniconspies Or trips with butdfies He's got the akills to make fans piened He says he's hip hups np of tee I say he's folk muric's 5-Hour Energy Good deer good jokes good angs good timer Hip hap rhymes and sick punch lines ire Coront Brb Deer se the fime Thank God for Wu-ng end Sublime that's it The comedy scene I find the comedy scene to be the most entertaining but also the most cut throat It feels like there's a different comedy clique at each comedy venue and that branching out and performing at multiple venues is generally frowned upon Im not one to quote the Mighty Mighty Bosstones but that's the impression that I Deez incorporates the acoustic singer-song- writer sentiment to many of his tunes not just with the obvious employment of his acoustic guitar but with a subtle infusion of emotional longing and romance This underlying vulnerability is perfectly placed amidst his light-hearted jokes and quick-spit thymes adding a layer of depth while helping him dodge the dreaded cheesy-white-rapper label RSOCOM
