DJBooth is proud to announce that the Dee-1 will be rocking on our stage for this year's A3C Festival in Atlanta. Born and raised in New Orleans, Dee-1 shares the same struggles as the legendary artists that put the 504 on the map, but he is determined to represent the city with a different viewpoint by using insightful and thought provoking rhymes. After graduating from Louisiana State University, Dee-1 began teaching middle school in Baton Rouge. The strong bond he formed with his students inspired him to be a powerful leader, but it also made it hard for him to leave. Finally, he decided that his passion for hip-hop was too much to ignore and that being “Dee-1? gave him a much larger platform to be heard than being “Mr. Augustine.”

Dee-1 recognizes that his music resonates with almost anyone “first and foremost because its real”, and as Dee-1 says “that’s why people from the hood all the way to the classroom feel it.” Dee-1’s music creates an atmosphere that welcomes all listeners from nearly any background. As his fan base continues to grow throughout the nation, Dee-1 is certainly poised to become one of Hip-Hop’s next great superstars. However, don’t expect him to get satisfied anytime soon.

Ask Dee-1 how he feels and he’ll explain it in his classic words, “and the battle continues…”
