I met Dee-1 at A3C two years back and he was a real cool guy. His story is interesting and his music is dope. Do your homework on this guy..It’s worth it.
Hmmm, how did I miss this one along the way? Oh well, better late then never! The homie Dee-1 brings the West Coast to his visuals as he’s ridin’ not-so-by-himself through Venice Beach in Cali with Murs and Syreeta Neal in tow. Appropriately, Ridin’ By Myself is the same title of Dee and Murs 20 city left coast tour. The Focus Tape with DJ Drama drops on July 4th.
Continuing 2DBZ and TheWellVersed’s exclusive conversations from SXSW, we chopped it up with Dee-1 about making the transition from teaching middle school to becoming a full-fledged artist, being nominated for the XXL Freshmen cover, how it’s deeper than music and his hopes to inspire people to better themselves (“It’s about if I die tomorrow making sure that whatever I did while I was here motivated and inspired somebody, hopefully millions”).
Literally one of the nicest people I know in the industry. Salute to you Dee!
Friday Feb. 24th 2012 come rock with one of the artists you will see on our SXSW Stage Dee-1, as well as Young Lyxx, Plane Jane, Chels, and special guest Sir Michael Rocks and a few more….There will be an official “In Store” with everyone at the New Era Flagship Store in Atlanta, GA at 4pm.
