Album:
I Hope They Hear Me (Vol. 2)

Sigmund Freud (in)famously stated that every dream represents the fulfillment of a wish. While I’m sure we all could think of counter-examples to that theory, the dream Booth newcomer Dee-1 describes on new single Jay, 50 and Weezy fits in rather neatly – how many of us haven’t fantasized about telling a rap heavyweight or two exactly what we think of they way they’re conducting their careers? Over Cuzin Mike‘s head-noddable chopped-sample beat, the New Orleans native offers tough but fair criticisms to each of the aforementioned artists, encouraging 50 to quit beefing and put his vaunted entrepreneurial skills to good use, challenging Wayne to support the Big Easy with his money as well as his words, and asking Hova to throw his considerable clout behind artists who will push the game forward. He concludes with some bracing words for the African-American community as a whole: β€œAncestors of ours are screaming from the grave, ‘cause physically we’re free, but we’re still mental slaves.” Craving more deep thoughts from Dee-1? You’ll find what you seek on I Hope They Hear Me (Vol. 2), due out later this year.
