Traveling from the trap to the club, the Cleveland rapper signed to Future’s Freebandz label, shares his latest single “2x.”
Niftily sliding his flow between producer Yung Lan’s bouncing bassline and chiming bells, Doe Boy channels Jimmy Two-Times, a memorable bit character from the Martin Scorsese classic Goodfellas, doubling the final word of each bar, transforming each line into a hook: “Say I ain’t that n****a, oh you sleep-sleep?/Oh you sweet-sweet?, my shooters gon’ eat-eat.”
“2X” follows the kinetic video for “2 Smoove” and the block-busting clip for “Ain’t No Love,” each singles from 88 Birdz, Doe Boy’s latest mixtape executive produces by Young Thug.
