Who is Snap Dogg?

Published

on

If you take a chance to watch HBO’s groundbreaking series Game of Thrones, based off of the book series named A Song of Ice and Fire by George R.R. Martin, you’ll notice that many of the major character’s lives are ruled by the titles bestowed upon them. Daenerys Targaryen starts off the show as a lowly woman whose claims to be the Queen of a far away Kingdom comes solely from her last name. Over the course of six seasons, she participates in a number of events that give her a large number of titles associated with her power. When she introduces herself to an important character in the penultimate season, her most trusted advisor relays her important to the guest by rattling off each of her titles. Snap Dogg, one of the fresh young faces of the Detroit rap scene, brings some of the same raw energy to his persona. He started off as someone without any claim to the city’s heart but has worked diligently, with multiple camps, to elevate his name to star status. His self-proclaimed title of “Problem Child Of Detroit” has become his signature tag. He brings a sense of honor and verisimilitude that often times are lost in mainstream rap where authenticity isn’t widespread. It’s only a matter of time before he graces the cover of Rolling Stone or XXL Magazine as one of the last real artists placing their livelihood in their music.

Bio:

Snap Dogg was born in Detroit, Michigan into a situation that forced him into the street life. His father was a drug dealer with the group Four Spot Boyz. At the height of his father’s time with the group, he was making $15,000 a day. The problem was that the money had to be funneled back into the drug business. Because of this, Dogg’s family struggled. His mother, brother, and the rest of his family, all turned to the streets to make ends meet. Much of his life was spent in the struggle as he progressed through middle school and high school. At the age of 17, he faced up to 25 years in prison. Shortly after dealing with that legal trouble, his twin brother died at the age of 18. He attended college in the midst of these troubles. His brother’s death spurred him to pursue rap because of its ability to lead people out of the struggle. His heavy-hitting, raw style of rap lead to Chief Keef bringing him into his Glo Gang collective. After working with the team and collaborating with Lil Durk, Snap Dogg joined Durk’s OTF collective. With two projects, Menace 2 Society Vol. 1 (2015) and Problem Child Of Detroit (2016), under his belt, it’s rare for a new artist to have this level of exposure so early. It shows that the Problem Child of Detroit can also be the city’s savior. The sky is the limit for this guy.

Who is Molly Brazy?

Molly Brazy

In today’s current hip hop media landscape, it’s common to see female rappers that fall into one of three categories. The first group consists of those rappers who focus on their sexuality as a means of artistic expression. The second group is made up of those who relate to their listeners by explaining similar life experiences. The last group recognizes the power in telling a story of violence, using it to instill bravado in fans and fear in the face of detractors. Molly Brazy, a young rapper out of Detroit who is rapidly gaining a buzz at the national level, is the product of the three groups participating in a menage a trois. She uses every element of storytelling to tell us of her important message: don’t fuck with her.

Seriously.

At only 18 years old, she shows a knack for rapping that some who are twice her age still lack. She’s proven her talent at freestyling, something that some of the biggest artists in the game right now refuse to do. Her gruesome content belies her innocent, beautiful appearance; she is a modern day femme fatale. Guys, if you think you can out-rap her, don’t try. She’ll lead you to your doom.

Bio

Molly was born on February 22, 1999, in Detroit, Michigan. She had a rough upbringing, later talking about how much she hated school. During her junior year, she was kicked out of school for fighting. She eventually began to upload videos of herself freestyling on Instagram. This would lead to her introduction to 4SHO Magazine, where with the help of Joseph McFashion, her buzz has begun to skyrocket.

Things You May Not Have Known About Her:

  • Her favorite weapon is the Century DRACO AK PISTOL 7.62X39.
  • She has a gold chain with the letter “B” embossed on the charm, a crown rests atop its head.
  • She has 660,000 followers on Instagram.
  • She’s worked with Cuban Doll and Rocaine.
  • She has braces.
  • In an interview with DJ Smallz, she says that her rap name came from “the hood.”

Who Is Team Eastside Peezy?

Team Eastside Peezy

Peezy is your classic street rapper with gusto: he comes from the struggle, he tells you his story, and he does it while making you want to go achieve what you set out to do. What separates him from the pack is his endearing, larger-than-life, personality that welcomes people into his world – one full of guns, women, and economic independence. At 28 years old, he’s in an interesting space – he’s seasoned enough to deliver a style of rap that doesn’t involve the new age mumbling, but he’s also too young to truly be considered an OG. He brings this style to his raps with his gut-punching bars and clever metaphors and similes to really make you sit back and say….damn. Go check out his latest project People’s Champ and get exposed to his music if you’re one of the unlucky few he hasn’t listened to him yet.

Bio:

Peezy was born in Detroit, Michigan on November 5, 1988. His childhood was divided because his mother was from the east side of Detroit and his father was from the west side. They also weren’t together, so this became a factor in his life as well. His grandmother owned six of the houses in one street so many of his family members lived around him growing up. He got kicked out of his firsts middle school and was forced to attend Cadillac Middle School on the east side of Detroit. At some point in time, the second floor of his mother’s house caught on fire making it impossible for him to continue staying with his mother – there simply wasn’t enough room. He’d move in with his father on the west side of Detroit. It’s here that he attended high school, starting out at Cooley High School where he got kicked out four months into his freshman year. He would continue on at Mackenzie High School for awhile before dropping out. He had it hard where he lived because there wasn’t any heat. Every morning, before school, he’d travel to the gas station up the street to get Kerosene. He’d end up smelling like the fumes in class and it bothered him enough to stop attending class altogether. Rap became his go-to vice. He became a part of Team East Side, a rap collective that began to gain a following in 2011. His discography is quite large: boasting a number of albums, including Mud In Mud Out, Vol. 1, Number 1 Ghetto Boy, Mud, Sweat & Tears, Mud Muzic 2 Reloaded, Money Orientation, and much more. His latest album, People’s Champ was released on August 14.
