Dee-1 continues to inspire his fans with the release of the video for the single,“I Know God” from his latest album, God and Girls on his Mission Vision label. Directed by Demarco Films, the video is a testimony of how important faith can be in today’s chaotic world.
The “I Know God” video concept is based on a homeless man who is hoping for a job but keeps getting overlooked. The world just passes him by as if he doesn’t exist, but he does not let this dampen his spirit or the thought that God has a grander plan for him. By the end of the video, through persistence and faith, he gets the call he’s been waiting for and gets a job. Enjoy this video stream below after the jump and please share this with friends.
Dee-1 says, “The “I Know God” song and video are proof that God has a plan for everyone, we just have to remain faithful and diligent.”
God and Girls is Dee-1’s first independent release since leaving RCA. The eleven-track album debuted at #15 on Billboard’s Christian charts and #40 on Billboard’s Hip Hop charts. God and Girls features collaborations with a diverse range of artists including PJ Morton, Ze11a, Christon Gray, Canon, Jonathan McReynolds, and Denisia.
If Tupac and Lauryn Hill had a son, it would be Dee-1. He is truly the voice of a generation, and has skyrocketed from doing local talent shows to rocking worldwide tours. Growing up in New Orleans, the temptation of the streets was very appealing. But these same streets broke Dee-1’s heart when his best friend got murdered. At that moment, Dee knew that God called him to break the cycle of negativity, so he chose a different route. Dee began rapping in college and became very popular on campus, but upon graduation, he decided to use his charisma and swagger to become a middle school teacher to reach the youth. He soon traded his classroom for a microphone and a stage, and the rest is history. Dee-1 entered the rap game on a mission: To inspire people everywhere to “Be Real, Be Righteous, and Be Relevant.” He has since released some of hip hop’s most powerful albums and has collaborated with platinum artists such as Lupe Fiasco, Macklemore, and Sevyn Streeter. His single, “Sallie Mae Back,” went explosively viral and became known as the “debt-free student loan anthem.” His latest album, ‘Slingshot David,’ is his most exciting project, carrying a theme of finding your Slingshot and using it to defeat your Goliaths—a concept everyone can relate to. From his dreads to his outfits, to his raps, Dee-1 is a colorful personality full of raw energy and pure hype. As he continues to rock big stages and make hit records, all he asks of the people is to stay focused and keep their #MissionVision sharp at all times.
