Dedan Milton and Kwame Kilpatrick met as children at the Shrine of the Black Madonna Church. They became friends, and when Kwame was elected mayor, he brought Dedan on as an aide. Dedan was by Kwame’s side for many of the highs and lows of Kwame’s tenure as mayor, witnessing the hip hop summit as well as Kwame’s extramarital affairs.

Dedan appears in Episode 11, Episode 14, and Episode 18.

It was like, ‘Yeah, yeah, that’s our hip hop mayor, he is like us.’ You know, ‘We hip hop, he hip hop,’ you know, ‘I got an earring in my ear, he has an earring!’
