Dee-1 recruited Lupe Fiasco and Big K.R.I.T. for the remix of his 2014 track, “Against Us.” The New Orleans rapper spoke with Billboard about his remix and how it came about.

“The line-up for this song feels like an All-Star team. Lupe is a legend, K.R.I.T. is a superstar and I’m the new guy making noise. Time to put some ‘respek’ on my name.”
