The New Orleans native has come a long way from where he was when we first met him at the Texas Summer Music Conference all those years ago. The former school teacher has been able to steadily grow his reach and fan base while maintaining his morals and integrity. All with one message in mind: Be real, be righteous, be relevant.
Dee-1 has been dropping so much new music lately, you almost have to wonder if a new project is coming?!
We have been long time supporters of Dee-1. Our guy is back with another heater, "I Know God".
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.
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".
