Lost Soul’s journey began during the golden era which was a very troubled time in New York City and after one conversation with producer and activist Paradise Gray he joined the "Blackwatch Movement." while there he got to learn and even travel with legendary artist X-Clan, Professor-X, Isis, Queen Mother Rage, Treadonya, Just-Ice, and YZ. He would later spent the next several years as a member of "Da Last Suppah" and record numerous demos eventually getting airplay on "Home Jams" a show once featured on New York radio station "HOT 97.”
After a several year hiatus he began working with producer Sir Kapital and recorded several songs that caught the ears of hip hop video show host Lord Bless and internet radio personality Big Murph and created a online buzz that was cut short after the death of his brother in 2006. Later Lost Soul would be contacted by the group "Brother Hood 603" and began working on new music that appeared online on an almost weekly basis. He's appeared on several of the groups projects until finally releasing an album in May, 2010 entitled “Dreams Die Hard.”
The album spawned two singles both with videos the first "We Don't Play" featuring Arewhy & Thanos, and the second "The Night I Died" both singles produced by Thanos with both videos directed by Kareem Bland. Both have gone on to air on the legendary "Video Music Box" as well as numerous local cable shows, internet radio, music blogs, and other underground outlets. Lost Soul then quickly returned to the studio to start work on his next album with the same team of producers and in December, 2012 released his second album “Poetic Resurrection.”
The second album would see numerous video releases the first being "Feast Or Famine" featuring Caroline Peppers who blesses the hook with her soulful voice. The second "The Main Event" featuring Arewhy, Thanos, & J-Proda attack the mic in classic rap fashion. The third "Hand In The Dark" sees Lost Soul lyrically maturing as he dives into a more conscious direction, and finally the albums fourth video called "Triple Threat" that blends together three first verses, from three different songs, done by three producers all in one video.
Lost Soul now teams up with producer Chris Clarke to release an collaboration EP in 2014 called "Based On True Events (The Steven Santiago, Chris Clarke Collabo)" which is being described as a 90's love album for those of you who don't want to let it go and for those who never got to get put on to the sound of an era that will never be duplicated. On the first single “Tasty Love” he goes in head first literally and lyrically and with two albums and six videos already to his credit Lost Soul only looks to add to his musical resume.
Albums: Dreams Die Hard (2010), Poetic Resurrection (2012), Based On True Events (2014)
