When The Urban Advocate started back in 2008, we were fed up with the negative music and images being pumped through the mainstream media about urban culture. We wanted to give a platform to artists who were being ignored by mainstream media outlets, especially those who had a positive message. One of the artists we took notice to early on was Slingshot David, better known as Dee-1.
The Urban Advocate recently attended the A-Team's Final Fridays at Three Links in Dallas, TX. While I was posted up on the wall watching Buffalo Black perform, this guy tries to slide by being incognito; M-1 of the legendary hip-hop group, Dead Prez.
In October of 2016, a website by the name of The Marketing Ivy released an interview with Remon, the founder of The Urban Advocate. For whatever reason, the interview was taken down from their site. Due to the great feedback, we have decided to re-release this interview for our people to read.
It's that time of the year again! Thanksgiving is right around the corner and MBK Dallas is gearing up for the 8th Annual Thanksgiving Drive!
Right now we live in a world where people are searching for something; something to belong to or something to live for. People are struggling trying to find their truth and their place in this world. Many of us are caught up in the rat race, living check to check, existing but not really living. Well, if you're one of those people, this is for you!
When it comes to being real, righteous and relevant, no three rappers in the game today represent that mantra more than Dee-1, Lupe Fiasco and Big K.R.I.T. The three have joined forces for the remix for Dee-1's "Against Us".
Remon is a multi-media personality. He is the founder of The Urban Advocate, co-host of The Vincent Tucker Radio Show and videographer.
