Dee-1 – “Call Yo Bluff”
By Amber B
In “Call Yo Bluff” Dee-1 has a conversation with Lil Wayne, who he has commended to be one of his biggest influences as an artist. Focusing on the lack of transparency in music and the need to deliver more empowering messages through music. Dee-1 uses “Call Yo Bluff” as a creative avenue to call out the music industry for its impact on the culture. “My lil homies bump you, and my lil dogs look up to you, but your food for thought don’t fill them up” “It’s only about income for you” Dee-1 states in this conversation with Tunechi, “Let’s meet in Hollygrove for coffee/ and talk about all our people that’s dead lying in coffins.” As a New Orleans native Dee-1 analyzes Wayne’s content and influence to make an example for a conversation about hip hop that although may be somewhat uncomfortable, but is a conversation that needs to be had.
