New Orleans rapper Dee-1 returns with a new video for his heartfelt single “I Don’t Want To Let You Down” off his latest album Slingshot David. Directed by Dee-1 himself, the video taps into the New Orleans streets where he tells the story of kids using their musical talent to support their families entertaining tourists in the French Quarters.
“I chose this as the narrative for this song when I met Zedrick and his friends walking down Bourbon Street. It was so late and I couldn’t understand how these kids were out here oppose to being at home doing homework,” states Dee-1. “At this point, I felt that it was my duty to shine some light on a topic that is plaguing the youth.”
