RCA Inspiration announces Hip Hop artist Dee-1’s tour dates. This is Dee-1’s second tour in 2015 and includes performances at BET Experience in Los Angeles, CA at 1pm PST on Sunday June 28 (BETx Stage: Music Matters) and Essence Festival in Dee-1’s hometown New Orleans, LA at 7pm CST on Sunday July 5 (Art of Hip-Hop Superlounge). The energetic MC toured the nation in February to promote his critically acclaimed EP, “3’s Up.”
The positive rap star is known for giving jaw-dropping, crowd-surfing performances and invigorating audiences when he takes the stage. Since 2011, Dee-1 has been on four successful nationwide tours, the “Grind and Hustle Tour” with Killer Mike and Young Dro, “Too Focused to Fail Tour,” “Ridin’ All By Ourselves Tour” with Murs, “Heist Tour” with Macklemore, and the “Tetsuo and Youth Preview Tour” with Lupe Fiasco. In addition, as a BET Music Matters artist, Dee-1 has toured with the likes of Macklemore, Lupe Fiasco and Lecrae.
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 schoolteacher, garnered 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 released his major label debut EP, 3’S UP on February 17, 2015.
