Dee-1: Down for the cause
When I listen to the music of people I've never heard I pay a lot of attention to the beat, chorus, and the lyrics. One rapper I just heard of, really caught my attention. He goes by Dee-1. The following video really surprised me because I don't expect rappers to address other rappers in the fashion that Dee-1 did. I also found his awareness of social issues in his city very interesting. Rappers who "REP" their city don't usually bring up the negatives or challenge the city such as he does. Well I'll allow you to judge for yourself. Enjoy!
