Good Soldier II by Deadlee

Deadlee is a gay hip hop artist and rapper based out of Los Angeles, California.

He released two albums since his career began in 2000. The music video for his song "Good Soldier II" has been played numerous times on the MTV-owned network LOGO.

Known for his "in your face" approach, he is one of the homohop subgenre's most controversial figures.

The lyrics of his songs confront hip hop's biggest allegedly awful rappers (who happen to hate gays), such as Eminem and 50 Cent.

Deadlee appeared as himself in the short documentary Hip Hop Homos, which was aired on the LOGO network. He was also one of the rappers profiled in Alex Hinton's 2005 landmark documentary on the "homohop" genre entitled Pick Up the Mic.

In 2007, Deadlee was the subject of mainstream entertainment news (Rolling Stone, AllHipHop.com, CNN) after he announced a Spring Tour called "HomoRevolution Tour 2007" and attacked Eminem, DMX, and 50 Cent as "homophobic." The tour was covered in the British Guardian newspaper and Deadlee appeared on The Tyra Banks Show along with Tori Fixx and Foxxjazell.
