About I.Deal

I.Deal is half American Indian (Navajo Tribe) and Mexican Hip-Hop Artist  that has been writing and recording for well over a  decade. I.Deal formed 1/2 of the group known as Native Scripts, which released their self titled debut album in 2007 through Workhorse Entertainment.

In 2008 I.Deal followed that release with the project "HERE FOR WORK MAN." The concept was derived with the idea of releasing a song per week for the masses, hence the name. The next project released by I.Deal was the mix tape in 2010 entitled, "JUST A SAMPLE." Like many of his releases there is a constant theme throughout with various projects. In 2013 we saw the release of "YOU'RE WELCOME." All of these project are available for your listening pleasures under the RELEASES tab. 2016 we saw the release of I.Deal's first debut album entitled, "BCUZ I CAN." 

I.Deal's current album is out and available everywhere titled "GAINZ", this project dropped May 3rd and this album is filled with non stop beats and bars and that said,  I.Deal released the first single called "I'm All In" and the reviews and responses have been great! This whole album is bananas and I.Deal appreciates every view, every stream and every follow. 

I.Deal has performed throughout the Chicagoland area for several years at such venues as: The Funky Buddha Lounge, Sub-T, Getz Theatre, Flat Iron Building, Cherry Red, Fiesta Cantina in Wrigleyville, Valentino's and Candela's Nightclub, Reggies Music Club, Cafe Lura, Silvies to name a few. In addition I.Deal has also done several charity events throughout the community such as, "Keep People of the Streets" fundraising event and worked with Rush University Medical Center for their annual Martin Luther King, Jr.- "Day of Service Event" for after school community programs. I.Deal set his sights on a music festival performing in NOLA and did so at The Indie Gras Festival Feb 17th, 2017 during All Star Weekend.  While we know performing and connecting with your audience is crucial we here at Chi-Native also believe there is more to it than just being an entertainer/performer for your fans or crowds of people. I.Deal feels every artist should make an attempt to make some kind of positive change within his community if given the opportunity and Chi-Native Entertainment is a true indie label that has tried its best through the years to participate in several charity events by donating back to school supplies for inner city youth to performing at fundraisers to raise funds for back to school programs as well as donating toys to Toys for Tots during the Xmas holiday season.  Chi-Native and I.Deal are here to prove a force to be reckoned with, providing true hip-hop music with more than just a rhyme and a beat but a true message to transcend all boundaries and we have some fun while we are at it too!

I.DEAL has longed believed it is up to each and every one of us to do as much as we can for those in and around our community and with that said he and the team decided to do a toy drive for the Indigenous youth over at the American Indian Center in Chicago. I.DEAL being part Native American took this to heart as he too grew up going to the AIC in his youth and for those that do not know the AIC serves well over 65,000 Native Americans that live here within the Illinois region with access to education, food resources,  health services and continuing our Native traditions. This was our first toy drive event and we are happy to report we exceeded our goal of 100 toys by triple and were able to provide over two full tables with toys for those that matter the most and that is the kids.  I.Deal would like to thank all those that contributed to this cause: Chaser's Bar and Grill, Diana with  Posh, AO Promo, Jennifer Marie, Caty, Rakido, each of our family members and the whole team who contributed, again without your selflessness none of this would have been possible.  Together we do more good and can make bigger influences and change united. 

My journey is far from over - thank you all for continuing to follow me on this journey - May we all reach our mountain tops and bask in the glory of achievement!
