Austin's own Chris Bosh has made the jump from basketball to music officially producing his first single "I Want It All" with Bastrop artist Deezie Brown.


Bosh, a two-time NBA champion, was forced to retire from his basketball career in 2016 after having a blood clot issue known as pulmonary embolism. After his career's abrupt ending, many fans wondered what the 32-year-old champion would do with all his spare time.

In an interview with Sports Illustrated in 2019, Bosh told Rohan Nadkarni about his music aspirations.

"I'm an aspiring record producer," Bosh said. "I've made many friends, I've had a lot of conversations, I've had some great moments making music with people, learning about music. Putting records together, working with artists, that has brought me a lot of joy. And I'm glad that I'm in a place where I can really, really put myself into that and learn the craft. It's been four years now. I'm getting better and more savvy in the space. I'm super happy that I have music. That was another thing, when I asked myself, what am I going to do? I had a guitar in my hand, and the next thing you know I was producing music."

Bosh and young artiest Deezie Brown first met in 2018 when Bosh was given a tip from a local Austin radio station about Brown's talent. For the past two years, Bosh has been working with Brown to help develop a unique sound.

The song, which was released before Game 2 of the NBA Finals on Sunday, was a tribute to late basketball legend Kobe Bryant. The single is on all streaming platforms now.
