Only The Family Rapper Doodie Lo Shares Debut Full-Length Big Doodie Lo

Published

on

Coming out of Kankakee with a bruising attitude and an appealing rasp in his voice, Doodie Lo has the versatility to become the next Only The Family rapper to break into the mainstream. Allowing himself to introduce himself, Doodie Lo shares Big Doodie Lo, a debut mixtape that paints a vivid picture of the rapper and where he comes from. A veteran in the streets since his early teens, the up-and-coming rapper is an expert tough talker, attacking the beat on street anthems like “Bodies” and “Killing You” with thudding force. He’s much more than just muscle, though, allowing his vulnerability to shine through with a gently melodic flow on songs like his origin story “Growing Up,” which recounts his evolution from football to the streets to potential rap stardom.

The new mixtape benefits from the influence of the late King Von, Doodie’s close friend and confidante, who Doodie credits for helping him develop the confidence to strike out on his own. The mixtape is home to Me & Doodie Lo,” an energetic collab between Von and Doodie that originally appeared on OTF’s Loyal Broscompilation (and racked up over 8 million YouTube views), in which the legendary O-Block native gives Mr. Kankakee an enthusiastic co-sign. Doodie Lo returns the favor with mixtape highlight “Von Flow,” in which he emulates the propulsive rhyming pattern that Von used in many of his hits and tells a crazy story of his own.

The tape also rolls out the red carpet for some of the biggest names in street rap. In addition to Doodie’s OTF brother Lil Durk, who lends his golden voice to “Alone,” the mixtape finds Doodie Lo dueting with Moneybagg Yo on the plaintive “Don’t Worry,” and joining forces with Pooh Shiesty on the pugilistic recent single Bodies” (1.9 million YouTube views). With additional appearances from BIG30 and Yung MalBig Doodie Lo is available to stream everywhere via Only The Family / EMPIRE.

Along with the mixtape, Doodie Lo shares “Don’t Worry,” a new music video featuring Moneybagg Yo. With dramatic pianos, twangy guitars, and wailing saxophone, the new song finds Doodie Lo speaking on his paranoia, and detailing some of the habits he’s developed to dull the pain. No stranger to substances, Moneybagg Yo comes through with his typical gravitas and street wisdom. In the video [VIDEO COPY],

A close associate of Lil Durk with a growing fanbase in the midwest, Doodie Lo hails from Kankakee, a small city 30 minutes outside of Chicago. He has contributed several standout tracks to OTF compilation tapes, including “Hang Out” ft. Memo600, from 2019’s Family Over Everything. The artist had his coming out party earlier this year with his contributions to Loyal Bros, including “Took Down,” his collaboration with Memphis rapper BIG30 that racked up over 1.6 million video views, “Street Raised Me,” which connected him with Booka600, and most significantly, “Me And Doodie Lo.”

With the full support of Lil Durk and a strong debut mixtape under his belt, Doodie Lo looks to establish himself as the next midwest street rapper to blow. Given all that he’s already overcome, it would not be wise to bet against him.

Published

By

All 2021, rapper Bizzy Crook has had his foot on the gas. From working with French Montana, contributing on Drake’s CLB album, to working with 42 Dugg and now being Grammy-nominated, Crook is well on his way to being one of the top independent artists to look out for in 2022. Today he’s here with the release of his new album, La Pharmacia executive produced by Grammy-nominated producer, Foreign Teck. The album features Crook’s latest singles, “Played Out” featuring 42 Dugg and the newly released fan-favorite, “Cartier Jaguar.”

This album reflects the growth Bizzy Crook has experienced within the past two years of his life and him honing in on being an entrepreneur. While many of us come from a not so easy backgrounds, the Miami-rapper is at point in life where he wants to experience financial freedom for the years and generations to come. La Pharmacia is the story of the underdog. Bizzy Crook encourages his listeners to make bigger and better moves in life: think generational wealth.

Speaking of longevity and generational wealth, Bizzy Crook practices what he preaches about in his music. During the peak of COVID in 2020, we all were forced to pivot in ways we never could have imagined; Bizzy Crook’s pivot took him in a direction that shocked many people. With a shortage of necessities in the hospitals, Bizzy was able to provide all things PPE related (masks, tests, syringes, and more) to many hospitals. Since this and the excitement he has for the health industry, Bizzy’s currently preparing to own his very first pharmacy in Miami.

Challenging himself to push the bar even further in life and musically, this album is Bizzy Crook’s best body of work to-date. The young Hip-Hop mogul in the making is proof that you can achieve anything you put your mind to; don’t settle for mediocracy.

Be sure to check out Bizzy Crook’s new album LA PHARMACIA out now on ALL streaming platforms. Connect with him via @bizzycrook for all new music updates, performances, and more.

Published

By

DUSTY LOCANE‘s booming rasp reverberated throughout the Five Boroughs in 2021, the 22-year-old artist scoring hit after hit en route to over 250 million streams. Now ready to show the world the full extent of his artistic prowess, the Canarsie rapper shares UNTAMEDhis hotly-anticipated debut album. Though he rhymes with plenty of force, DUSTY’s flavor of drill stands apart because of its deep musicality–DUSTY attacks beats with a sonorous sing-song flow, often backed up by ethereal and haunting vocal samples. Spanning 20 tracks, the album benefits from the artist’s stark and aggressive lyricism, as he shows fierce loyalty to his suvies and promises a rough time for anyone who dares cross him.

The new album is home to DUSTY’s GOLD-certified breakout hit “ROLLIN N CONTROLLIN FREESTYLE,” an eerily melodic banger that generated over 200 million combined streams, as well as follow-up smashes like “Rolando (Caught In The Rain)” and “RUMBLE” that dropped earlier this year and still can be heard blaring out of car stereos from Bed Stuy to Bay Ridge. DUSTY’s hit single ROLLIN N CONTROLLIN PT. 2 (PICTURE ME) is currently scorching hot on TikTok, trending at #9 on the app’s list of Top Trending U.S. Songs. Just last month, DUSTY shared a hair-raising video for CANES WORLD,” as DUSTY opened up about his life in the trenches and his motivations to leave that life in the past.

Beyond the hits, the project introduces new bangers like the apocalyptic,  guitar-flecked “ICED OUT,” the thug love anthem “WHAT YOU NEED,” and the Canarsie neighborhood theme song “FLOSS STATE OF MIND.” Featuring appearances from Yung BleuOBN JayRah Swish, and more, UNTAMED is available everywhere via EMPIRE.

DUSTY LOCANE has been rapidly climbing up the NYC rap ladder, powered by the success of “ROLLIN N CONTROLLIN” and its follow-up singles. DUSTY’s second single, the follow-up hit “Rolando (Caught In The Rain),”proved that the WOO-affiliated rapper’s success was no fluke, racking up over 1 million YouTube views and 1 million Spotify streams in its first week and earning praise from Pitchfork. Both “ROLLIN & CONTROLLIN” and “Rolando” peaked in the Top 5 of Rolling Stone’s Trending 25 chart, and his third single INTRO 2 ME, PT. 1” peaked in that chart’s top 10. On just his first four singles, the rapper racked up over 250 million combined audio and visual on-demand streams.

With his debut album under his belt and the streets of Brooklyn on his back, DUSTY LOCANE is a great bet to reach the upper echelons of rap stardom.
