We have another Midday Money Show first this week. I’ve never talked with a hip hop artist who was so intentional about spreading a message of financial literacy.
Don’t get me wrong, Dee-1 is a hip hop artist, first and foremost.
He came correct.
His lyrics are on point. The beats make you want to shake something.
Who knew this passion for personal finance would turn me into a pop culture music critic.
It’s just refreshing to run across an artist who is using his platform to inform, educate and uplift, rather than exploit negative stereotypes and push a false narrative of everyday living.
I haven’t felt this warm and gooey over music since I heard Video by India Arie. We’re talking decades.
Dee-1 has a viral video, No Car Note, that’s causing a sensation and changing mindsets. Enjoy his video and let me know what you think in the comments below.
Do you know of anymore fiscally responsible artists we can highlight? Leave a comment on the new Midday Money Show voicemail. Call: (773) 893-0241
“It’s amazing that we’ll judge someone’s music by the kind of car they drive.” ~Dee-1 aka Mr. Augustine
