FM Interviews: Dee Aura About “Forensics,” “Fast Life,” War On Hip Hop



Dee Aura On Forensics, Fast Life, Hip Hop War
Dee Aura.

Dee Aura is an artist from New York who works in various genres, from R&B to drill. His recent “Forensics” music video is also a part of Gelato NYC’s “Corner Store” project, every episode of which is a clip featuring different Hip Hop artists. 


According to Dee Aura, “Forensics” is about a feeling of “being watched by everybody. Either it’s a good thing or a bad thing; regardless, I’m being watched, like forensics. That’s why I got that [song title] in my head.”

Despite the difficult topics raised in the song, the clip’s shooting process has been relatively simple. “We met up on Malcolm X Boulevard,” Dee Aura says. “You know, we shot a couple scenes for [the music video] real quick. It was real light: 1, 2, 3, you feel me?”

“Fast Life”

On top of the new music video, Dee Aura has recently released his latest “Fast Life” EP. According to Dee Aura, the new record is “For somebody, you know, who loves to jug, drive on the road, love to make money, that type of feeling. That’s what fast life is, you know, living in New York City. Everything is fast over here.”

In terms of sounds, the recent recording has “a southern type of style” sound.

The War On Hip Hop

Dee Aura also has an opinion about recent disturbing run-ins between the Hip Hop industry and law enforcement. Examples would include Eric Adams’s proposal to ban drill music from social media or the court using Young Thug’s song lyrics as evidence in a court case against him. 

“That type of shit is fucked up. We should be able to speak how we want to out here. [The certain parts of the executive and judicial branch of the U.S. government] stop people’s money. I even had like two or three of my shows shut down for bullshit reasons. Shit is not cool. That’s how I feel about it.”

Dee Aura’s Message

Dee Aura’s main artistic goal is to “make everybody feel good, who listen to my shit. I just want everybody to catch back to my shit. That’s what I want people to do, to remember what I put out. That’s it. I do wanna leave a mark.”
