Dee-1 x Music Nerdery

3 Jan

Late October, i sent out a post about David Augustine better known by his stage name Dee-1, an American rapper from New Orleans, Louisiana. The video for his song “Jay, 50, & Weezy” was released October 11, 2010. It received attention for its content and mention of Lil Wayne, 50 cent, and Jay-Z. Dee-1 has been featured in national media outlets such as CNN and Billboard Magazine. He has also received attention from Louisiana newspapers and music magazines.

How many of us haven’t fantasized about telling a rap heavyweight or two exactly what we think of they way they’re conducting their careers? Over Cuzin Mike‘s head-noddable chopped-sample beat, the New Orleans native offers tough but fair criticisms to each of the aforementioned artists, encouraging 50 to quit beefing and put his vaunted entrepreneurial skills to good use, challenging Wayne to support the Big Easy with his money as well as his words, and asking Hova to throw his considerable clout behind artists who will push the game forward. He concludes with some bracing words for the African-American community as a whole: Ancestors of ours are screaming from the grave, ‘cause physically we’re free, but we’re still mental slaves.
Craving more deep thoughts from Dee-1? You’ll find what you seek on I Hope They Hear Me (Vol. 2), and a recent interview with Music Nerdery.
