Doe Boy fits the mold.
Today, in the world of Urban Contemporary Music and beyond, Future is a household name. Known for his affiliations with legendary individuals and dining with fashion’s elite, Future is now presenting new music under his Freebandz label imprint.
“Streetz Need Me” is the latest release by Doe Boy, a Cleveland, Ohio-native rapper. The mixtape features eighteen tracks. It features DJ Esco, Remy Boy Monty, Future, Lil Durk, OJ Da Juiceman & Lil Cray. Most importantly, Doe Boy doesn’t offer a new narrative. His voice isn’t unique nor does the production stray away from the norm. If you’re looking for something groundbreaking, you won’t find it here. However, if you’d like to add unmarked sing-rap tracks to your playlists, this is the project for you. This is not to say Doe Boy makes ‘bad’ music but to point out that it fits the mold.
Being signed to a star—Future—ought to be a safe bet. Naturally and understandably, everyone wants a piece of his action, his pie. However and truthfully, life isn’t designed to make a world of winners. Just a select few are supposed to win big with good reason. But—Donald Trump is the President-Elect of the United States of America, so anything is possible. America’s political traditions have taken a backseat lately.
If he keeps making songs as fun as “Way Too Many,” “Nigga,” “Odell Beckham,” “Mama Neva Understand,” “Rob A Rapper,” “Damn Well,” especially the one about the New York Giants wide receiver, he will continue to capture the youth, dancers, and people with young souls.
Stream the new mixtape “Streetz Need Me” by Future’s new artist, Doe Boy, on its premiere site. Then, wait on his new releases to support again.
