Dee-1 ft. Alania - Pause the Music

Producer:
Flight School
Album:

Dee-1‘s last feature (a Killer Mike-assisted remix of a previously-featured single) found him highlighting the trait that separates him from his less ambitious peers: whereas other need a break from the hustle on occasion, the New Orleans rhymesayer is, “never clockin’ out.” That single-minded dedication to his work, however, means that he can never put his artistic passion aside in order to pursue a woman. On Pause the Music, premiered yesterday via Prefix, he revisits a romantic opportunity in order to chase after rap stardom, flowing over Flight School‘s pensive, descending piano chords and chopped vocal samples. Playing the woman who could could have been his, singer Alaina pleads with him to take a break from his grind on her guest chorus. This poignant jam is set for inclusion on Dee’s Mannie Fresh-hosted #TheFocusTape, scheduled for release October 9, and fans should keep it locked for details on the artist’s forthcoming, 50-city national tour with Macklemore.
