New Orleans based rapper, Dee-1 created his own lane in hip-hop by making music that’s “real”, “righteous” and “relevant”. He is the self-proclaimed “voice of the underdog who grinds with a higher purpose”. In March 2011 Dee-1, a former school teacher, created a huge buzz in the rap game with the release of “I Hope They Hear Me Vol 2”, a mixtape packed with 18 high energy tracks. Most historic was his single “Jay, 50, and Weezy,” that put him on the radar of major label reps.
Dee-1 released, “The Focus Tape,” (hosted by legendary DJ Mannie Fresh) in 2012, followed by “Psalms of David,” (featuring the hit song “Work” ft Lecrae) creating fans worldwide. Dee-1 signed to RCA Inspiration in 2013 and is scheduled to release his first EP with the label at the top of 2015.
