Dee-1 - It's My Turn

DJBooth_logo2x
  • Artist: Dee-1
  • Track: It's My Turn
  • Producer: Rockaway Productions
  • Album: I Hope They Hear Me (Volume 2)

In the brutally-competitive music game, it's not unusual for an up-and-comer to spend years hoping and praying before finally getting a shot at greatness (that's if he or she doesn't give up first). Dee-1, for one, isn't taking any chances; on his latest mixtape leak, the New Orleans representative (and Best of the Booth award-winner) straight-up informs the powers that be that “It's My Turn.” Rockaway Productions handles production duties, cooking up a sparse, organ-driven beat (complete with a hook sampled from Diana Ross' joint of the same title) as Dee demonstrates exactly why heads need to reserve a seat on his bandwagon before it's fully booked. Among other lofty boasts, the emcee claims: “If 2Pac and Lauryn Hill were married, I'd be their son” Think Dee-1's got the skills to live up to that noble lineage? Those leaning towards the affirmative will undoubtedly enjoy what the artist's got lined up for his Booth-sponsoredI Hope They Hear Me (Volume 2) street album, set to hit our mixtape page on March 1.
