Though he shares a knack for conversational lyrics and street realism, Doodie Lo is quite different from his Only The Family brethren. Growing up 50 miles outside of Chicago in Kankakee, Illinois, the former athlete is armed with tough-talking rhymes, gravelly vocals, and a unique story to tell. Doodie crowns himself the new voice of his city in his new music video, “Mr. Kankakee,” which dropped yesterday. Doodie preaches an ode of loyalty to his OTF crew while simultaneously sending a warning to his enemies. Directed by SV Visuals, the video finds Doodie giving a high-speed tour of his hometown, hanging out with his loved ones, and temporarily taking over as the cashier at a local convenience store.
Doodie Lo’s “Mr. Kankakee” follows his promise to put on for his city in “Don’t Worry” featuring Moneybagg Yo. These two tracks partially capture the essence of Big Doodie Lo, the artist’s recently released debut project. Big Doodie Lo is home to the mellowing Lil Durk-assisted track “Alone,” head-banging street anthem “Bodies” (2M+ YouTube views), and “Me & Doodie Lo,” an enthusiastic collab between Doodie and the late King Von, in which the latter co-signs his close friend (and garnered over 8M+ YouTube views). With the support of his crew and a solid mixtape under his belt, Doodie Lo is taking his career to the next level and striving for greatness in the rap game. Including additional features from Pooh Shiesty, BIG30, and Yung Mal, Big Doodie Lo is available everywhere via Only The Family / EMPIRE.
