He is the self-proclaimed “voice of the underdog who grinds with a higher purpose”.

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.
