New Jersey rapper Doitall, best known as one third of the popular 90s trio Lords of the Underground (L.O.T.U.G.), is gearing up for the release of his solo debut, American Du.
The upcoming album is a part of what Doitall, aka Du Kelly, calls “Adult Contemporary Hip-Hop.” It will feature collabos with some of the game’s vets such as Mr. Cheeks (Lost Boyz), Treach (Naught By Nature), Masta Ace, Craig G, Ed OG, and Shaheim (Wu affiliate); while production credits inlucde Pete Rock, Scott Storch, Fokus, Ric Notes, Illastrate, Lady Trauma and other up-and-comers.
Even though the rapper is a certified vet with 20+ years under his belt, he says on his debut he’ll be showing fans that he still has that hunger for music.
“The hunger in my voice makes me sound like I’m starving,” Doitall said.
In addition to giving fans a dose of his solo work, Doitall plans to introduce his protege to his fanbase, an artist who goes by the alias Phenom Cartel.
According to his camp, notable songs to pay attention to include “Yea Yea”, the Pete Rock-produced “Surrender,” “I Get It In”, and the Scott Storch-produced “We A Different Kind”.
American Du is slated to drop on May 4th.
Until then, make sure to download Doitall’s mixtape, The Hunger In My Voice, which he released exclusively through BallerStatus back in December.
With the music industry constantly evolving, Doitall has maintained by securing independent film and television roles on shows such as “30 Rock” (NBC), “Law & Order” (NBC), “The Sopranos” (HBO), and “OZ” (HBO). He’s also held down roles in indie feature films such as “Durdy Game” (Roc) and “Cash Rules”. He’s also been doing the corporate hustle as well, working alongside Michael Bivins (New Edition, BBD) at his Sporty Rich Enterprises.
