T.I.’s Hustle Gang has a solid roster of stars (B.o.B, Travi$ Scott) and budding MCs (Chip, Big Kuntry King). Alabama rapper Doe B fits in between the two, steadily coming up as a new talent who shares his stories of the trap life. Typically waxing lyrical over harrowing and bombastic beats by the likes of Will-A-Fool and Zaytoven, Doe B has distinguished himself with his unique reality raps. With this combination, he has a shot at becoming a legit rap star in the very near future.
Part of Doe B’s appeal lies in being deeply rooted in ‘Bama hip-hop. While the South is identified by the sounds of ATL or New Orleans, the 22-year-old has connected with a larger audience with his banger “Let Me Find Out.” But don’t count that as the only regional cut from his city. Doe swung by the XXL offices to drop knowledge on four well-known tracks from his home state outside of his own; from Small Tyme Ballaz to Deuce Komradz, Doe puts us on. —Eric Diep, (@E_Diep)
