    I am so happy for Dee-1. He deserves it like so many other talented artisits. I loved listening to his rhymes. He is always saying something relevant. I hope he continues to keep tthe mixtapes coming because I am definitely soaking it all up.

    As Dee-1/Ocho seis minus the ocho cinco would say……”I Hope They Hear Me!!!!!!!!!”
