Dee-1, the New Orleans rhymesayer who rose to acclaim on the strength of 2011's DJBooth-hosted I Hope They Hear Me, Vol. 2, has now unleashed that project's highly-anticipated follow-up.
Hosted by fellow N.O. native and industry vet Mannie Fresh, The Focus Tape comes heralded by reader-acclaimed singles "Pause the Music," "Never Clockin' Out (Remix)" (featuring Killer Mike), "The Very Best," "Master P" and "SUAG (Shut Up And Grind)." Guest features include, but are not limited to, Juvenile, Lecrae, Mos Def, MURS and tabi Bonney. Beats come courtesy of CKP Productions, DJ FU, Flight School, The MVP's and many more.
