Yeah, they’ve got their four or five hit singles and the rest is just filler.
If you’re looking for some substance, style, and originality, you might want to look into DobleFlo. DobleFlo is a rap group out of Brooklyn, consisting of ANUH and Enonymous. They recently released their debut self-titled EP. It consists of only nine tracks, but they manage to bring you some Latin flavor, a little rock and roll, and old-school hip-hop vibes.
Of course with any new act, you question their skills. If you’re doubting DobleFlo, ANUH and Enonymous each have a track of their own where they rhyme for about 60 seconds straight, no breaks, no hooks. After listening to each of their sessions, you’ll come to terms with your doubts and realize these guys can bring it.
They boast some feel good rhymes (i.e, on their track “YAD”) but these guys aren’t soft at all. On “Just To Stay Alive,” they display a passion and grittiness in their voice and vocals that the rap game is sorely missing.
Granted, putting together a full-length LP is hard work. It takes a lot of production and arrangements to keep the listener in tune but DobleFlo is up for the challenge. They bring some many different things to the mic, like their flow, verses with substance, various beats, it’s hard not keep your ears glued to their words.
“Lights Out” is the best track on the EP. It blends a Middle-Eastern rock beat on top of some strong lyrics delivering some ill metaphors from the duo.
If ANUH and Enonymous stay on this course, there just might be hope for fans of the hip-hop game who can actually enjoy a group that can rap and not just boost their egos.
Here is their video for “Lights Out”…
