Christian Music News, New Christian Music News New Orleans based rapper, Dee-1 launches his first big mission to change the rap game with all-new tracks on his long awaited major label full-length debut album, Slingshot David (The Album).  An astounding autobiographical triumph, Slingshot David (The Album) charts Dee-1's adolescence and his maturation into the man he is today.  The album details his real physical and spiritual struggles while growing up in New Orleans.  The high stakes are immediately recognized through Slingshot David's narrative device: recorded, unscripted conversations with the nephew of his late best friend, who was murdered in their home city.  The real-life implications highlight Dee-1's perseverance and journey, and give his debut a gravitas not seen in many other albums.

"My whole life has really felt like a fight," Dee-1 explains. "I always felt like the underdog in terms of the city I'm from, the part of town that I was from, and especially later in life getting into the rap game. I was a college graduate teaching middle school, attempting to become a rapper and actually make a name for myself."

Even with all the powerful moments, Slingshot David (The Album) is a fun, propulsive record, reveling in the highs of Dee-1's life as much as it is pained by the lows.  The album has fun reminiscing about the Cash Money Records era of New Orleans on "Wanna Be A Hot Boy."  Dee-1 flexes his New Orleans styles, bouncing over "Intelligence" and fiercely tearing into album closer "Hol' Up."  The album deftly maneuvers between styles, tempos, and themes, on other songs such as "Love Always Wins" (feat. Sevyn Streeter) and "For The Stars" (feat. Avery Wilson), delivering an exhilarating musical journey beyond most of his peers. With Slingshot David (The Album), Dee-1 has produced one of the most important albums of the decade.
