If Tupac and Lauryn Hill had a son, it would be Dee-1. He is truly the voice of a generation, and has skyrocketed from doing local talent shows to worldwide tours. Growing up in New Orleans, the temptation of the streets was very appealing. But these same streets broke Dee-1’s heart when his best friend got murdered. At that moment, Dee knew that God called him to break the cycle of negativity, so he chose a different route. Dee began rapping in college and became very popular on campus, but upon graduation, he decided to use his charisma and swagger to become a middle school teacher to reach the youth.
Dee-1 entered the rap game on a mission: To inspire people everywhere to “Be Real, Be Righteous, and Be Relevant.” From his dreads to his outfits, to his raps, Dee-1 is a colorful personality full of raw energy and pure hype. As he continues to rock big stages and make hit records, all he asks of the people is to stay focused and keep their #MissionVision sharp at all times.
In his first release since departing RCA Records, Dee-1 dropped his first independent project God And Girls. under his label Mission Vision Music. The New Orleans rapper’s latest LP has 11 tracks and features PJ Morton, Jonathan McReynold, Ze11a, Christon Gray, Canon, and Denisia.

RMG Amplify is proud to announce the newest addition to the Amplify family, Kurtis Hoppie. This talented singer-rapper from Las Vegas, NV is here to put the h-o-p-e back in music.
Hoppie was inspired to pursue music from a young age. He sang in choir throughout his upbringing and had aspirations of being in an alternative band. After unsuccessful attempts with launching a band, he soon realized his musical journey would have to be a solo one. Hoppie began to take his solo musical career seriously by releasing music on SoundCloud, that combined an alternative sound with rap and hip-hop.
The diligent hard-work and humbleness from Hoppie is evident, which has allowed him to quickly capture the attention of more tenured artists and record labels, such as RMG Amplify. Although Hoppie is a new artist, he already has a resume of many accomplishments. He’s won competitions as best new artist and has had opportunities to tour with popular artists like Derek Minor, Canon, Bryann Trejo, Zauntee, Xay Hill, Antwoine Hill, Young Bro, Plain James, 5ive, and more. Most recently, Hoppie was a 2019 Official SXSW Artist and performed at the Reflect Greatness Showcase.
“Working with RMG is crazy to me! I have honestly looked up to these guys since I first became a Christian, to work beside them is a dream," Hoppie shared about joining RMG Amplify through his label One Vision Army.
Hoppie plans to continue to make meaningful music and experience growth as a music artist, with the label support from RMG Amplify. He loves making Christ-centered music, with an ultimate goal to bridge gaps and create positive music that gives hope to the hopeless. He is currently working on new music that will release throughout the year, leading up to his new EP that will release later this year.
“Any Means” is the second single of Reconcile’s much anticipated sequel ‘Streets Don’t Love You 2’. SDLY2 continues to paint the picture of the urban life. While many see it as hopeless, Reconcile presents his testimony of how struggle and pain lead him to redemption and hope. SDLY2 is declaration that environment, circumstances, and situations don’t define who you are, but rather where one’s hope lies.
“Forever” blends worshipful lyrics with a vibey R&B/trap feel, focused on God’s eternal nature and the promise of forever with Him.
Despite our depravity, God welcomes us with open arms through the face of Jesus. While we were yet sinners, Christ laid down His life for our own good and benefit! There is no greater display of love this world has seen: God choosing to love imperfect sinners like you and I!
