The American rapper followed the hip hop path early on when he was 16. Not long after that, Dee Black shared the stage with names like Nas, The Roots, and many others. Dee turned down a major record deal, and instead, he created his own label. Hisstory Music Group is home to Mouthpi3ce, Plain James, and Chris Elijah, but that doesn't mean he's done spitting rhymes behind the microphone.
"I Used To" tells the story of him growing up in Baltimore MD where hip hop influenced him deeply when he was a kid. The soundtrack to Dee Black's destructive behavior was Tupac, Biggie Smalls, and Dr. Dre, but here, he pleads to change the narrative - where music plays as a positive influence.
