I wanted to show some love to the young homie Lil Dee on his latest release with The Truth Staten on “Not Like Me”. We covered Lil Dee over the summer, randomly finding him over Instagram. Dee was a young prodigy at the age of 12. He’s 16 now, maybe even 17 at this point. His voice grown now, but this young man still that prodigy.
It’s been a few months since we’ve posted on the site, and since then some things happened. Three months ago, I decided to take a step back from the Lyrically Rap blog and social media accounts. I was going through some things at the time. I was feeling like an imposter, like someone who didn’t belong in the rap culture. We were so focused on social media growth, and getting more clicks and grow the brand, that I lost focus of what we were really doing here at Lyrically Rap. I was digging for new gossip stories, sharing stuff that was dramatic. I was trying to copy what other sites were doing, and in doing so, the social grind took over and it just wasn’t fun anymore. Social Media was affecting my mental health.
k, so we’re a little late with the latest Volume 11. Three weeks of releases have passed since our last update, and that really put us in a corner trying to select 20 songs for this volume. It was difficult, but I think we put together a solid set of songs that you’ll be able to listen to a few times through.
