SMG Artist of the Month: Dee-1

David & Goliath - Dee-1

By: Julian Ross

From official bio:

Often described as “a mix between Common and T.I.”, Dee-1 is one of few Hip-Hop artists who specialize in making music that is lyrically profound while still appealing to the masses. Born & raised in the heart of New Orleans, Dee-1 shares the same struggles as the legendary artists that put the 504 on the map, but he is determined to represent the city with a different viewpoint by using insightful and thought provoking rhymes in his music

Having already built a solid street buzz with his mixtapes Still We Rise and I Am Who I Am, Dee-1 has catapulted to another level with the release of his critically acclaimed independent album “David & Goliath,” which is available on iTunes, at, and at select Best Buy stores (in Louisiana). “David & Goliath” was nominated for Hip Hop album of the Year by Louisiana’s #1 music publication, Offbeat Magazine. From top to bottom, the album contains timeless bangers fully equipped with Dee-1’s New Orleans accent, clever rhymes, and catchy hooks, mixed with his untouchable swag. The world famous producer Mannie Fresh even gave Dee a personal phone call praising him after hearing his music. Most recently, Dee-1 has performed alongside nationally touring acts such as Lil Wayne, Lupe Fiasco, Drake, Trey Songz, Akon, The Roots, Mya, The Clipse, Musiq Soulchild, Fat Joe, Lil Boosie, Juvenile and more.
