The transition from regional battle rapper to the booth is an old equation that has forever plagued hip hop. Many artists have walked this path and either succeeded or failed. However very few have had to transition from battle rapper to striving artist to community activist in the midst of black America’s premiere moment in the modernized struggle for equality.
T-Dubb-O has successfully accomplished all of the above in a seemingly short amount of time. His flow is aggressive and his lyrics are powerful,controversial, witty, and unapologetic. T-Dubb-O is the highly evolved off spring of the neighborhood set-tripping commentary driven gangster rap music of the early 90’s. As a mainstay member of the Rolling 60 Crip’s — Dubb has undoubtedly lived the street life he rhymes about in his music.
He has also played a critical role in bringing the concerns of the streets directly to President Barack Obama’s desk by visiting the oval office for an invite only conversation about correcting the woe’s of police brutality. He has also collaborated with the likes of Project Pat, Crooked I, Freeway, Pastor Troy, Tef Poe and more.
T-Dubb-O’s most recent single “Word”(Produced by Beau Willie) is energetic, aggressive, and overflowing with neck breaking one liners.
“Word” is currently available on iTunes courtesy of MobLyfe/ Delmar Records.
