If Dae Dae isn't yet on your radar, rest assured that will change very quickly. The latest effort from the buzzing ATL rapper, "Woke Up," produced by fellow rising ATL star London On Da Track, should be enough to break you out of your slumber, or at the very least have you bouncing out of your seat.
Dae Dae is currently riding high off of his recent signing to 300 Entertainment and the success of his breakout single "What U Mean," a summer smash that has already accumulated over 40 million combined plays across YouTube and SoundCloud.
Here, he touches on his daily routine of waking up to cash, lessons from his mother ("I ain't got no manners but my momma gave me standards") and the constant threat of police brutality in America today ("Fuck the law, fuck 12, they doing all the killing and I gotta watch my back 'cause I got 5 children"). London On Da Track, who has quickly become a production force to be reckoned with thanks to his acclaimed work with Young Thug and an incredibly addictive tag ("WE GOT LONDON ON DA TRACK"), provides the energy boost with a bright, buoyant backdrop.
"Woke Up" will appear on Birth of a New Nation Tour: The Mixtape, a collaborative project between Digital Trapstars and 300 Ent. that will act as the official soundtrack to the recently announced Birth of a New Nation Tour. The tour will be headlined by Dae Dae, Shy Glizzy, and PnB Rock, along with London On Da Track, while the mixtape will feature exclusive new music from all four artists, in addition to Kevin Gates, Young Greatness, Young Thug, T.I., Jose Guapo, Kid Red, NBA YoungBoy and more.
The BONN Tour kicks off November 10. For tickets and the full list of dates, make sure you head to the official website. Birth of a New Nation Tour: The Mixtape is slated for release next month.
