Every day the youth in our community are exposed to many issues such as drugs, crime, violence and more. These issues have a major impact on the everyday lifestyle of the youth. Many music artists and rappers are sending out contrary messages. Christian Hip Hop Rapper Dooney da Priest is educating, building and attacking those messages the youth are exposed to. His hit single “Pull Your Pants Up” sparked major buzz in the city of Dallas and landed him on the Dr. Phil Show also featuring guests Rev. Al Sharpton, Mayor of Dallas and the Ying Yang Twins.
“I think it’s important for people to know that I didn’t choose the Hip Hop culture or Hip Hop music; it chose me due to its influential force in the neighborhoods I grew up in. Everything from break-dancing to rap music was in my daily life as a teen. My most important reason for my creativity as an artist is to overcome the stereo-type of Hip Hop used to promote drugs, glorify the life of a drug dealer, alcohol use/abuse, sexual immorality, guns and/or gang violence. My Message and heart’s desire is to inspire, educate, and elevate others in a positive way through music.” Dooney da Priest
Our hope is that you would allow us to show the influence that society has on the youth by joining us on the ‘Pull Your Pants Up Tour’, where the youth are educated on how to present themselves in society and hopefully learn to reverse the negative messages. The new single “Pull Em Up” will release Jan. 25th everywhere online. Dooney da Priest is a client of RKD Music Management.
Always a myth of those top artists who sound so good in the studio. The mics are set just right, the vocals are tuned to a T and that record just goes on and on being so perfect. But have you actually been frustrated when you get to a concert and the artist just doesn’t match well with their studio masterpiece?
We know just about everyone can sing nowadays. It’s like there is something in the water, because people of all races have just been blowing the industry out of the park with their voices. But what really goes on behind closed doors in those sound proof studios? Can a studio singer really take what they deliver in the studio and actually deliver it on stage? Some would argue that a few of these mega starts are phenomenal singers. Yes, in the studio they are. On stage, we’ve seen it happen and some do get away with lip singing. But when you actually hear a singer on stage blow and take it to the max, it just gives you goose bumps.
One person says that Mary J. Blige is that person who brings up a notch on her live shows. She can blow and others say it depends on the singer. It depends on what they can do and who they are. What experience they already have and are they seasoned in this profession. You decide.
