Why I chose the brand of Dee-1 The brand of rapper Dee-1 is in essence a native of New Orleans who graduated from Louisiana State University sharing his journey through rap to reach teens and adults with his message called Mission Vision .

Dee-1’s Mission Vision:

Dee-1’s Mission Vision “Mission Vision is a state of mind where you are committed to focusing on three things in life: An ever-growing relationship with God. Using your skills and talents to create a better existence for yourself and your loved ones. In everything you do, be real, be righteous, and be relevant .” (Mission Vision, 2015)                            

Versatile branding (Rapping and Lecturing):

Versatile branding (Rapping and Lecturing) The thing that sets Dee-1 apart from other rappers is that he once was a teacher to middle school students in his native New Orleans, and he now still lectures in academic and community settings. His message is seamless, the same thing you hear in his music you hear in his messages on record. The Dee-1 stamp on hip-hop music provides “The Ultimate Moment Of Truth” that creates fans who will share the unique mission though “blog posts, YouTube videos, reviews” (Solis, B., 2013, p.74).

The brand is then a collection of shared experiences aimed at creating alignment between your vision and customer appreciation.” (2013, p. 147)
