Audio: Dhan Dee – Nickles and Dimes

In Hip Hop by James Wijesinghe

Like Jay-Z and Dolly Parton before him, Dhan Dee’s song ‘Nickles and Dimes’ speaks of money struggles in America. The Chicago rapper delivers honest lyrics with a dope flow, over a jazzy old-school beat, making references to Wu-Tang‘s ‘C.R.E.A.M.’ and including samples from the TV show Ozark. As the frontman of cLOUD9, Dhan Dee has proven his performance prowess. Now on his Muddy Waters EP, it’s all about the bars.
