New Orleans rapper Dee-1 releases new visuals for his single “I Don’t Want To Let You Down” off his album Slingshot David. Directed by Dee-1 (shot & edited by Ben Simmons), the video taps into the New Orleans streets where he tells the story of a musical subculture where kids support their families entertaining tourists in the French Quarters. This story is only one of the many stories that exist across the United States, where kids pitch in to help provide for their families.
“I chose this as the narrative for this song when I met Zedrick and his friends walking down Bourbon Street. It was so late and I couldn’t understand how these kids were out here oppose to being at home doing homework,” states Dee-1*. “At this point, I felt that it was my duty to shine some light on a topic that is plaguing the youth.”*
