Dee-1 Addresses Male Manager Who Tried To Sleep With Him
#DXCLUSIVE: The New Orleans also explains why he stopped cursing at the last Sentimental Sundays.
In the latest installment of Soul Sunday, the New Orleans rapper Dee-1 joins HipHopDX's Trent Clark to address controversial bars of his album Honda of David, and the reception it has received from the LP, the removal of the curses from your vocabulary, and much more.
