Dee-1 is easily my favorite Christian rapper out. My introduction to him was through Mannie Fresh, I didn't even know he was a Christian rapper at first. He's still rapping at a top level and Murs has never failed me with the songwriting. So, if you ever a fan of either, this album is definitely worth a listen for you. I'm listening now as I type this and I just wanted to put something up about it. Production is good throughout (Curtis King produced throughout, I never heard of him before). Ridiculous range of topics covered. Hope these guys make more projects together. More thoughts later, I worked ten hours today.

... where he pretended he met like JayZ, Lil Wayne, and ... some other artist, maybe Kanye, talking about what he thought they should be doing with their platform. Cool concept, I enjoyed the song enough, but never ended up following up and exploring his music any further.
I'll check this out - thanks. Big Murs fan always.

First time I heard him was the Jay-Z/Lil Wayne/50 Cent song mentioned above. And I remember him on the MURS & Ski Beatz album from like 2012 (he was on a song with MURS and Tabi Bonney). And then I remember him from an episode of Treme.
Almost through it, and I'm digging it. Their styles contrast well, and Curtiss King is ill on the beats. Love the soul/gospel samples.
