St. Louis up-and-comer, Doughboy, offers an uplifting message in his new song/video, “Better Days,” the first off his upcoming project, The Initiation. In the clip, the rapper cruises around his hometown, as he experiences a bad day, but keeps his head up, spitting bars that remind listeners that there’s always better days ahead.

The song is a refreshing break from the twerk and turn-up rap that floods the Internet among young artists in present day.

The Initiation is coming soon. For more info on Doughboy, follow him on Twitter at @IamDoughboy.
