We got a chance to catch up with the New Orleans bred rapper Dee-1 at the 2014 Dove Awards Red Carpet. He shared his take on the Dove Awards and a little bit about his upcoming music including his newest single, “Against Us.”

“Moving forward, I’m only motivated to continue being the best artist I possibly can be.” says Dee-1. “Against Us” serves as the first official single from Dee-1’s forthcoming EP, slated to release at the top of 2015.

You can catch him in your city on the latter leg of the BET Music Matters College Tour. The remaining stops include: Grambling State University, Tuskegee University, Mississippi Valley State University, and Jackson State University.

You can download his new single on iTunes.
