New Orleans rapper Dee-1 broke onto the scene just under two years ago with the scathing yet insightful "Jay, 50, And Weezy." The video on YouTube now has over 500,000 views, and since then, Dee-1 has released a collection of mixtapes, seen his videos featured on MTV Jams, and has toured across the U.S. on three nationwide tours. Starting in October, and continuing throughout the rest of 2012, Dee-1 will join Macklemore on the road for a 50-date national tour, and before then, on October 9th, Dee will release his new mixtape, #TheFocusTape, which will be hosted by hometown hero and hip-hop legend Mannie Fresh.

Earlier this month, Dee-1 released the first single from #TheFocusTape, "Shut Up And Grind," and today, he's releasing a new track, "The Very Best," which features mixtape host Mannie Fresh, along with some guest vocal assistance from Mos Def. The track, produced by The MVP's, and, according to Dee, was written on the spot in a recent studio session Mannie Fresh and Mos Def. "That alone," says Dee, referencing the shared studio session with two hip-hop legends, "gave me the adrenaline rush that inspired everything listeners hear in the song."

Originally, says Dee, the track was supposed to be a posse cut, with Fresh and Mos both taking a verse, but as Dee spit back his verse, the two vets knew the song deserved to largely be a solo track. "They told me to just finish it off," recalls Dee, who used the push of inspiration to open his second verse by rapping, "I'm in some kinda zone/ I ain't trying to leave." Most of all, for Dee, the track serves as a statement for where he is in his music career right now. "I'm having fun, making meaningful music with real people in my circle," says Dee-1. "Life is too short to do anything less."
