Lets get to know Lil Dee Gods Gift

Lil Dee, Gods Gift, born Danny Rogers on June 1, 1989 in New Orleans, Louisiana, has taken the struggle of growing up in the south and transformed it into a lyrical landscape to gain insight to Rap and Hip Hop music. Though only 21, his sound and skills far surpass his age. The early influences and motivation of the late Notorious B-I-G and hip hop lyricist Nas, have helped developed his style of positive rapping through provoking rhymes. Lil Dee has been on the big stage form early age. Lil Dee began to showcase his talent by performing on local radio shows, which led to him winning the Freestyle contest for The Source Magazine. His success prompted him to enter the studio to record and release a mix tape that would go on to sell over 20,000 copies. His strength as a performer goes far beyond the studio, and his ability to engage and captivate an audience has allowed him to open for artist such as Rick Ross (Def Jam), and work with artists Fiend (Formally of No Limit Records), and Baby Boy Tha Prince (Universal Records). He has been featured on many well-known artists CDs including Turk from Cash Money Records. Lil Dee's positive style and energy has allowed him the flexibility to perform on radio, television, and video. He has appeared on BETs’ 106 and Park, the UPN Network; and most recently, he opened for Gudda Gudda & Tyga of Lil Wayne’s’ Young Money Label. On Lil Dee’s latest Mix tape "The Spokesman" he worked with Snipe from Choppa City Boys on the hit single and video “Never Let Go”, which did over 8,000 downloads in 2 weeks. On the number 1 radio station in New Orleans Q93, rapper T. I. was once quoted saying “Lil Dee is the future of New Orleans Rap”. The motivation Lil Dee has is driven by the ability to know that this is Gods plan for him. Success to him is never falling short of his dreams of sending a message. He is driven by the love and support of fans and knows this is what he was born to do. Lil Dee is not just the future but Gods Gift to Rap music. As of late he was awarded best new artist of the year by NOLA HipHop awards.
