WeBeenGone Exclusive: Interview With Up and Coming Artist Dee-1

WBG: What influenced you to write “Jay, 50 and Weezy”?

D1: I wrote “Jay, 50, and Weezy” when I was still teaching middle school. I saw how my students were so influenced by hip hop artists and our culture and i thought about my upbringing and who influenced me back then. “Jay, 50, and Weezy” came to mind. Then I thought about how I have matured and how I still respect them as men and talented artists, but I also see where they can be doing more to help change the culture in a good way. So my song was based on a dream I had where I had a meeting with those guys. Its not a diss song, just a real song.

WBG: How has your life changed since you dropped the video?
D1: I’m on MTV. The video has almost 100,000 hits on youtube in less than a month. People in other countries are now fans of Dee-1 and OMAR Ent. (One Man Army Rebel Ent). I have tons of new fans who appreciate me for me. They have gone to and downloaded “I Hope They Hear Me Vol 1″ and been going on iTunes to get my album “David & Goliath.” But I have been grinding so I’m thankful that God has begun to open these doors for me.
