N2Deep is a rap group from Vallejo, California best known for their 1992 hit single "Back to the Hotel."

The group was formed in 1989 in Vallejo, California by Johnny Z (John Zunino), Jay Tee (James Trujillo), and TL (Timothy Lyon).

While attending college in Sacramento, Johnny Z began producing hip hop music and after graduating and moving back to Vallejo, TL referred Johnny to an aspiring rapper, Jay Tee. The three began writing and recording hip hop demos and performing live shows originally as 3DEEP. Before long, Johnny Z decided to work strictly behind the scenes and on the music and production end, while Jay Tee and TL performed the vocals and live shows.

In 1990, the group now known as N2DEEP released an up-tempo single on vinyl record and cassette titled "Work That Body" on Rated Z Recordz, a label and production company started by Johnny Z. The single saw some club play and opened the doors for more live shows throughout the Bay Area.

By 1992, the group and Rated Z prepared to release an EP, titled Back At The Hotel. Just before the cassette tape and vinyl record were to be released, N2DEEP, Johnny, and then Rated Z consultant, Steve Bernstein decided to send the tape to Cory Robbins of Profile Records. Cory then contacted Steve and offered a production contract to Rated Z for the group.

By May 1992, the first single, now titled "Back To The Hotel," was released on Profile Records and distributed by Landmark Distributors owned by Jeffrey Collins. "Back To The Hotel," moved up the charts peaking at #14 on the Billboard Hot 100. 


Back to the Hotel is the debut album by American rap group N2Deep, released June 23, 1992 on Profile Records. The album was produced by N2Deep and Johnny Z. The only guests on the album were fellow Vallejo, California artists B-Legit and E-40. Along with singles, music videos were released for three songs: "Back to the Hotel", "Toss Up" and "The Weekend".

The album was a huge success for the group, peaking at number 55 on the Billboard 200, at number 29 on the Billboard Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums and at number 1 on the Billboard Top Heatseekers.

The album also featured the very successful single "Back to the Hotel", which peaked at number 14 on the Billboard Hot 100, at number 12 on the Billboard Rap Songs and performed well on several other charts as well.

The mildly successful single, "Toss-Up", peaked at number 92 on the Billboard Hot 100 and at number 74 on the Billboard Rap Songs.
