Orange, NJ: If you’re like me, every once in a while you have to take a break from trap and need to listen to something a little more upbeat. Dougie F is the next big thing to be coming out of New Jersey. Last week he released his newest album titled Yellow Durag. The 8 song album is a nice change of pace from today’s landscape of downtempo trap and the project features and appearance from XXL Freshman Kyle for the album’s single, Homegirl.
“The inspiration behind Yellow Du-Rag is about living an optimistic life while knowing how serious things are around you,” he explained to XXL. “It’s about taking your separate piece and using it to light up and guide u through that dark deep place u feel lost in. Every song title tells a story within itself. So this is me wanting to put out a project that positively affect people. Just because you’re from a fucked up place doesn’t mean you have to be stuck there musically. I feel that people don’t get enough of the upbeat, uplifting, authentic, story driven, conceptual side of rap. I want them to be inspired, to go harder, be themselves, be authentic and to change their circumstances through my actions and my music.”
