Chris Brown is giving his overseas fans extra incentive to purchase his latest LP, Royalty, by including the Royalty International EP, featuring five bonus tracks.
Dee-1 still refuses to water down his music, to the benefit of his fans and connoisseurs of Hip-Hop with substance. The New Orleans rapper drops a powerful visual for “My Student Got Murdered (Both Sides of the Gun).”
It’s interesting to see what becomes of artists after they ink a deal with a major label. Fortunately, Dee-1 shows no signs of deviating from or compromising his “Mission Vision” since joining the RCA Records roster; such can be heard on “Against Us,” the first taste of his upcoming EP.
Those who don’t stand for something tend to fall for anything. Fortunately for listeners, wordsmith Dee-1 is very earnest in his approach to emceeing and always has an uplifting story to tell on wax.
Rappers have been delving into the grandest of hustles to make sure their videos come out right and on time (just ask Rich Homie Quan). Like we do about this time, The Wrap Up: Hip-Hop Wired’s Top 10 Videos Of The Week goes out of its way to recognize such hard workers. Actually, it’s no […]
Having perseverance through setbacks is a remarkable trait that is necessary if any dream is going to be fulfilled.
Historically speaking, some of the best music ever created acts as a means of catharsis for artists — a form of spiritual release if you will. Think about what “Ex-Factor” was to Lauryn Hill or “You Must Love Me” to Jay Z, or, to be more current, “Jason Geter” by Dee-1, a MC who’s always prolific in […]
Rev. Lennox Yearwood Jr., president and CEO of the Hip Hop Caucus, has launched the “Act On Climate Campus Tour,” which puts focus on environmental issues featuring entertainers and other prominent figures. Despite the good intentions of the tour, last week a Fox News analyst threw a series of cheap shots towards the organizers of […]
Nas once poised the question, “Name a rapper that I didn’t influence?” It’s 2014 and his words from 2001’s “Ether” still ring true to this very day.
Digital media is not only big business in 2013, it’s the only business as far as success is concerned. If Beyoncé’s most recent earthquake of an album taught us anything, it’s that the Internet and all its capabilities are to be fully taken advantage of if you want to go far within your musical career.
We’ve seen some of Hip-Hop’s biggest stars come out of New Orleans over the past few decades, but none have sounded like Dee-1. Hip-Hop Wired spoke to him about recently signing to RCA Inspire, the Psalms of David II mixtape, and more.
New Orleans can be described in many way, but in this case we’ll refer to the city as “flavorful.” It’s a place that’s defined by a rich culture; people, food, and, more particularly, music included. From its renowned big brass bands to bounce music to Hip-Hop, the Big Easy can provide an audible delight perfect […]
Very few MCs have a truly riveting backstory. However, RCA Inspirations‘ newest recruit Dee-1, a middle school teacher turned MC, returns with his second audible blessing of the year via Psalms Of David II.
It’s all about the women on a new track by recent RCA Records signee Dee-1 called “I’ll Pay For It.” No, this isn’t another one of those, “it ain’t tricking if you got it,” anthems, but rather a record meant to uplift the queens out there.
It’s always comforting to see rappers build from the underground (the blogs in 2013) and get the chance to spread their music on a higher platform. New Orleans rapper, Dee-1 has made it a goal to pepper his records with socio-concious messages and it’s culminated by signing a deal with RCA Inspiration.
The 2013 A3C Hip Hop Festival kicked off last night (Oct. 2) in Atlanta, with a convergence of rappers, artists and fans swarming to several venues to take in the sights. With a staggering amount of lectures, films, in-store events and concerts, it is nearly impossible to take it all in but Hip-HopWired will be […]
