Our team recently got introduced to a dope artist right out of Newark, New Jersey. Going by the name of Dougie F, this versatile MC is a member of DJ Sliink’s Newark-based Cartel Music crew. Fresh off Mad Decent Block Party, Dougie F makes his own Block Party with his latest mixtape offering. His sound is something like a mixture of Atlanta trap sounds, West Coast influence and that East Coast gritty nature of rap. His latest offering will get your juices going with quality lyricism and production to compliment it.
Dougie F took inspiration from the project by describing how Friday’s always felt like a block party for him. He also describes how the mindset changes from the young crowd to reaching some maturity. Read below what he had to say about the project:
The projects was rough for anyone but Friday’s made it all worth the struggle it seems. Friday’s always felt like a block party. That’s when everyone was outside not looking past the day because it was a feeling we wanted to last forever. It was an escape for the adults they wild out, gambled, made sells, fought, got drunk and high. As a kid it was more so about staying out late, not having school in the AM, seeing all the wild shit that goes on in the hood, being mischief, chasing girls and just doing kid shit.
As we got older we began to worry about clothes, music, and money. Maturing off the block with that same friday mentality embed in us we carried that to wherever we went. From the block to the world, that’s how I see my life and my music. Something coming from somewhere so small to it giving off that relatable impact to places we haven’t even been yet.
