Be real, be righteous and be relevant are the three ups that rapper Dee-1 lives by. VIBE caught up with the New Orleans native in his hometown this summer, where we hit the French Quarter for our latest VIBE Original Music Video.
Our crew — directors Ryan C. Spencer and Jason Haberman — filmed the visuals for Dee-1’s “3s Up,” off his Psalms of David mixtape. Says Spencer,” We vibed in the streets of New Orleans for a few hours capturing the essence of the city and its people.”
“I don’t focus on the not, the negative or the no,” raps Dee-1 on the street anthem. “I just focus on the top, I gotta get it, let’s go.”
Dee-1 will release his Psalms of David II mixtape on Nov.19 via Datpiff.com, and is currently opening up for Chicago native Lupe Fiasco on his Tetsuo and Youth Preview Tour. To catch both pf of these lyrical madman on tour, check the dates here.
