New Video: DEE-1 – “I’M NOT PERFECT (I’M A CHRISTIAN)”

This week, SONY/RCA Inspiration artist, Dee-1, released a new music video for his single, “I’m Not Perfect (I’m a Christian).” The song is from the artist’s new EP, 3’s UP, which is available now on iTunes.

“I feel passionately about this new video, “I’m Not Perfect (I’m a Christian),” said Dee-1. “I am excited fans are finally getting the chance to view it.”

The video provides fans with a unique glimpse into the artist that is Dee-1. In it, the New Orleans artist explores how his quest for happiness led him down a dark path as personal insecurities and suicidal thoughts took hold. Tempted by the trappings of any young man, the rapper admits to struggling with living a purpose driven life within an industry that often glorifies the opposite. With the promise of fame and fortune, women and quick satisfaction, it is difficult to remain loyal to your vision. Dee-1, however, resists, gaining the courage to turn down top industry executives that would rather have him compromise himself than live within his truth.

“Like I said in my song, ‘I’m not perfect,’” said Dee-1 to Yahoo! Music. “I try to live to one standard, but I am also my own worst contradiction in certain aspects. I am who I am, take it or leave it.”

This new video is only the latest in a string of releases put out by the rapper. Dee-1 has made a name for himself by being one of the few newer artists that are not only skilled lyricists but also socially conscious. Over the years Dee-1 has performed alongside everyone from Lil Wayne to Drake,Macklemore, Killer Mike, and more. He recently signed to Sony’s imprint RCA Inspiration and is ready to use this platform to embolden his fans. He is currently working on his major label debut album.

“This is an exciting time,” said Dee-1. “I am making music I feel is authentic to me and that my fans can be proud of. My goal is to provide my fans with music that will uplift them and give them the power to stand-up for themselves. With the music I have been working on, I think I will be able to do that.”
