“Cold is very meaningful to me because at the time I was really upset with somebody and they pretty much just walked over me and always downed a nigga and I was tired of being there for somebody who wasn’t there for me so that’s how Cold was made.”

Talk about the current landscape of hip hop.  Do you feel like you’re a part of a movement, or do you feel like an outsider against what’s coming up?

Currently, I feel like hip hop is definitely categorized into two huge different sections; one being conscious/lyrical rappers and the other being soundcloud or “mumble rappers.” I personally don’t know where I would categorize myself because I find myself making both types of music. I feel like making music is very therapeutic and should give off certain vibes. I like to make music that gives people different types of vibes whether it be moody and chill or lit and raunchy. I’m not really sure if I’d consider myself a part of the movement, i’m just doing me and hoping people can vibe and relate to what i’m spitting.

Talk about your most recent album S.H.I.T. what’s the concept. Why did you title it that way and how did you feel about the reception?

S.H.I.T is my most recent project and stands for “Something Heavy In Thought”. Pretty much the whole reason behind me making this project was to give people something they can vibe too and give a little introduction to who DOON actually is. Off rip you’ll realize i’m not like any of these other rappers out here. I spit with a meaning and with a passion behind my bars so I feel like S.H.I.T is the best physical presentation of myself . I suck at coming up with track names and titles. It took me a hella long time to come up with it but I was just sittin to myself thinking about how much time and thought I put into the project then the acronym “S.H.I.T” popped up in my head . For the most part, a lot of people liked S.H.I.T. Most people said they liked the feel or vibe it gave off but others said it sounded like one huge song which is fine because I just use that as motivation to get better and more creative with this music shit.

Servin really had no purpose behind it. It was basically me just experimenting and having fun but also trying to give people something they can bang their heads too.”

Your most obvious influence is MF DOOM.  How did you start listening to him, and what makes his music unique to you?
1
I have a track called MF DOON PT 1 and MF DOON PT 2 . Yes, they were obviously inspired by MF Doom . I honestly think DOOM is one of the best lyricists of all time and his flow is CRAZY which is why he inspires me. And I feel like I have mad flows which is why those 2 tracks are called MF DOON PT 1 and PT 2

You from the beach, what do you think of people hopin on waves?

Dickriders. Definitely, a lot of people biting flows and biting styles but Ima just let them do them. I ain’t really worried bout anybody else but myself because I’m the only person that can get myself where I want to be so just gotta keep working and keep being myself.
