Standout: “Raise Your Weapon”
Also check out: “Underground Kingz”
And: “Bad Guy”
Name: Doley Bernays
Hometown: Bronx, Uptown
My style and skills have been compared to: Honestly I dont even listen to comparisons. I’m Doley, 1 of 1. People feel my radical views and upbringing on the streets mixed with my love for poetry and deep literature could be seen in Tupac.
My standout records and moments to date have been: My first street single “Bad Guy” being released for my new EP Just In Case produced by Top Dawg Entertainment’s Willie B. Having Kendrick Lamar producer telling me I got it to make it big was a great feeling.
I’m gonna change the game by: Bringing it back to lyricism. Showing that just cause you come from the streets and rap about your upbringing, it doesn’t have to be complete ignorance. I bring my real life to rap. In the Bronx, it’s grimey out here, but at the same time without school I’ve educated myself well beyond my years.
I’d like to work with: I love to make timeless music so my goals would be to work with legendary producers rather then rappers. Kanye West, Pharell, Just Blaze, 40 and new producers like Young Chop and Mike Will Made It.
My goal in hip-hop is: To be the greatest. I don’t wanna be the humble quiet kid. I wanna work my ass off and my presence will match my work ethic and my mind state will match my acheivements.
I’m gonna be the next: I wont be the next anything, but I will be the first Doley Bernays. The first to make it famous out my hood, my building and my family.
