New Orleans' own Dee-1 is making moves since inking a deal with RCA Inspiration.

On the uptempo Rico Beats-produced track called "Against Us," Dee-1 explains that his anthem sheds a positive light in an genre arguably driven by antagonism at times. "It symbolizes the war against negativity," he says. "I've been blessed with so many dope opportunities, this is the triumph, this is the victory. Moving forward, I'm only motivated to continue being the best artist I possibly can be."

Along with the new song, Dee-1 is also set to appear in the 2014 BET Hip-Hop Awards' cypher, which airs tonight at 8 P.M. EST. Make sure to catch Dee-1 on the second leg of the BET Music Matters College Tour, where the remaining stops include Grambling State University, Tuskegee University, Mississippi Valley State University, and Jackson State University.
