Dee-1 Performing at #FinCon17
Dee-1 has toured the country with chart-topping and Grammy award-winning artists such as Macklemore, Lupe Fiasco, Lecrae, and PJ Morton. Most recently, he has headlined his own 30 city nationwide tour.
Dee-1’s public profile skyrocketed due to his viral hit, the student loan anthem “Sallie Mae Back.” After receiving a substantial advance from signing his first major record deal, Dee-1 made a conscious decision not to buy a new car, a big house, or some expensive jewelry, he decided to pay off his student loan. He prides himself on being debt free and to be a rapper responsible for a hit song that is highlighting financial freedom and a tangible message is just icing on the cake for the New Orleans native. To date, “Sallie Mae Back” has hit millions of views on Youtube & Facebook.
