Who is Asian Doll?

Published

on

Asian Doll is another mysterious face in the rap scene. She’s out here, no doubt. We see her signature smile and unique aesthetic all over Twitter and Instagram. She interacts with many of the hottest names in the rising rap scene, but instead of exhibiting friendliness, it’s beef between these parties. There’s no shortage of interview clips featuring the rising rapper on YouTube. The thing is, if you go to look for information about her character, there’s close to none online. So the enigma that’s beginning to break out, most recently collaborating with PNB Rock and catching the eye of Kodak Black, remains mysterious in nature – similar to Playboi Carti. For this reason, understanding her and her beliefs becomes a little harder. What’s clear from her interviews is that she’s well-spoken, firm in her beliefs, and not willing to back down from any challenge.

Bio:

Asian Doll was born on June 26, 1997. Throughout her lifetime, she’s resided in Los Angeles, California, and Atlanta, Georgia and Texas. She grew up in what she describes as “the hood,” and knew that she wanted to rap at a young age. When some friends went to record a song before school one day, Doll decided to give them a verse before going to school. She said that throughout the day, everyone began to rap her verse around the school, including instructors. While it was a great feeling, she decided that she didn’t like the attention because she’d rather be ducked off. In high school, her rap career began to pick up, so much that she’d get in trouble by her parents. Her father would get angry at her for preferring to go to a video shoot instead of attending school or getting a job. She eventually left high school, before graduation, to pursue music full time. In 2015, she dropped her first EP Rise of The Barbie Doll Gang before she really began to explode onto the music scene. In June of 2016, she released Drippin In Glo, one of her most popular projects so far. She kept the music flowing to her fans, dropping her next project, Project Princess Vol 1. In September of the same year. In March of 2017, she released her first project of the year Outtaspace. She followed the outline she created in 2016, gifting the world a second project during August of the same year – her debut album Kill Bill Vol. 1.

Things You May Not Know About Asian Doll:

  • She’s not looking for a boyfriend. She believes guys to be a distraction.
  • She’s worked with PNB Rock.
  • She’s currently beefing with Bali Babi and Cuban Doll.
  • She would like to do an album with Nicki Minaj.
  • Two people that she’d love to work with are Lil Uzi and Travis Scott.

Review: “Pull Up N Wreck” by Big Sean ft 21 Savage (prod. by Metro Boomin)

Published

on

It’s always nice to hear Big Sean switch from sullen, introspective mode to the loose, thrill-seeking rapper that we grew to love over the course of a couple of mixtapes and a few albums. With a self-focus aspect that permeated the subject matter of his last release, I’m Decided – save for a handful of singles made for radio – his new release “Pull Up N Wreck” is a welcome look into a more enjoyable style of rap that we’ve missed.

Sean makes two decisions that define the track, making it one of the better of his last releases. The first is that he brings in superstar producer Metro Boomin to handle the production. It’s faster than what Boomin’s usually darker, more foreboding, style of beats usually entails. It’s jumpy, crass, and yet, soothing. It’ll definitely garner some spins at a party, something that previous releases like “Bounce Back” and “Moves” somewhat struggled with. The second decision is to feature a guest verse from Atlanta-rapper 21 Savage, who brings in his effortless, grimacing style of rap. 21 raps at a brisk pace, utilizing his usual array of street raps. It’s largely the same, but it works.

Combining these elements together, along with some creative bars from Sean himself, creates a track that works on multiple levels. It may not be his most lyrical or his most entertaining party-grabbing anthem, but it’s solid nonetheless. With it coming so soon after the release of I Decided – which just recently went platinum – is it an indicator of another project? If so, we’re ready to see if the fun-loving style of “Pull Up N Wreck” will be a consistent theme of the project or just an isolated instance.

Score:

3.9/5

Who Is Rocky B?

Rocky Badd

It’s commonly said that children take after their parents, combining the best characteristics of both worlds to craft into their own personality. If both parents have a fascination with words, what will their offspring do with them? Rocky B also known as Rocky Badd, a rising rapper out of Detroit, is the answer to this question. She’s a fierce soul with a devilish grin whose poised to blow any day now. Don’t be lulled into a false sense of appeasement because of her bright smile and youthful exuberance; she throws down on the microphone with reckless abandon.

Rocky was born on May 16th, 1994 in Detroit, Michigan. Her parents were both extremely familiar with words; her father was an important rapper in the city’s local scene and his mother frequently wrote poetry about her lifestyle and surroundings. Because of this, Rocky knew that she wanted to work in music from a very young age. She wrote her first rap song in the sixth grade when she realized that the art form was her calling. Just recently, in 2016, she uploaded her first song to Soundcloud. Prior to that, much of her music existed on YouTube (and can also still be found there). Since then, she’s been on a roll, releasing music along with accompanying videos that have racked up tens of thousands of views. Combining that with the 129,000 followers she has on Instagram shows that there is some serious interest and star power surrounding Rocky.

Goodnight 😘🖤

Rocky’s rap style is solid and straightforward, emulating a more traditional sound that’s uncommon in today’s rap atmosphere. It works, perfectly. Her ability to keep her delivery on point is what separates her from the scores of other artists who would kill to be in her place. It makes listening to her easy as well. She’s named Erykah Badu and Lauren Hill as two of her influences.

As she continues to become a larger influence in the world, Rocky B will capture the minds of many who look for the traditional sound that the game lacks. Check out her music today.
