Dee-1, the New Orleans emcee best known for his slightly preachy YouTube hit “Jay, 50 & Weezy,” links with The Great Man Mannie Fresh for a sonically warm but spiteful tale of “The One That Got Away.” Dee proves himself an adept storyteller and Mannie’s voice of reason adlibs demand that everyone on earth give it a listen: She’s not the one!/ I need you to clear this up on the third verse!/ The song almost over! Not to mention the summertime cookout clip in which Mannie does the robot in a crocodile apron while waving a spatula. Let that boy cook.
