“If you find your slingshot, use it.” – Dee-1
Dee-1 is no stranger when it comes to touring high schools in an effort to promote college planning and financial responsibility. So it comes as no surprises that the Hip-hop artist, who is known for his viral hit “Sallie Mae Back”, has teamed up with Sallie Mae to host a 5k race to help with fundings for college scholarships. According to Business Wire, Dee-1 will officially kick off the race on Sunday, June 3rd at 8:30 AM in Indianapolis, Indiana.
If you could recall, I did an interview with Dee-1 in November 2017. We talked about his album and life as a teacher before breaking into the music business.
Shortly after our interview, I had the pleasure of meeting him at a local meet and greet held at Offbeat JXN.
Knowing Dee-1 like I do now, I know for a fact that he is willing to do anything to help out the youth of this generation.
