With me slowly getting back into the loop of things I thought Dee-1’s new album ‘Slingshot David’ would be perfect to help with kicking things off in 2018. I’ve posted a handful of his records over the years and it’s always dope to hear what he has lined up for us. On this album, we can continue to hear him speaking the truth and dropping some game without the glorified gun talk, violence and drugs. In “The Devil’s Playground” featuring Sean Carey and Minister Will Murray, Dee-1 can be heard saying “They knew I was broke, so they asked me to sell my soul… This man said if I slept with him he’ll manage me. Yeah, ya’ll know him”. And then there are major records like “Love Always Wins” featuring Sevyn Streeter which sounds like the theme song for some blockbuster movie starring Will Smith and Jennifer Lawrence.
So yes, I’m feeling this album including records like “Why Do the Righteous Suffer”, “Hood Villains”, and “I Don’t Wanna Let You Down” featuring Cyrus Deshield. So when you have a minute and want to switch it up from Lil Uzi Vert or Migos why not start with Dee-1 and “Hol’ Up”, “For the Stars” featuring Avery Wilson or one of the songs listed above.
