[SOUTH CENTRAL PENNSYLVANIA\ GEORGIA] We are blessed with another project by indie hip-hop artist Dubby, FOLD OUT CHAIR is a eight track project. Dubby will be releasing his official second album in 2018! And is not stopping anytime soon. Dubby is definitely an alternative artist, from the different kinds of melodies and flows to his lyrics and the variations of productions he chooses. After listening to FOLD OUT CHAIR, I find these tracks to really stand out to me such as Big Cuz, Festival, Backpack Rollie, Cannonball, and Demon. But if I were to pick one favorite, it would have to be Festival. It makes my hips move and my heart beat. He also released two visuals for with Big Cuz, Demon, and Chesapeake. You can take a look for yourselves below and of course the quality of his videos are always on point.

The project includes features from Team Loko affiliate, Cal Mobley, Atlanta based artist, Wayne Chapo, York, Pennsylvania artist Kwame Katana and DMV artist Maurice Daniel and production by a plethora of producers. I find Dubby to be making smart moves when it comes to his selection with the people he works with. Continuously making good music working with the same creatives throughout his career. They understand his approach and they make his dream alive.

[SOUTH CENTRAL PENNSYLVANIA]Today’s the day, where Hip-Hop Artist Dubby of Team Loko debuts his long awaited album Heart & Havoc. The nine track project takes us deep within Dubby’s life. With just the first listen you know this is definitely a solid project. Through the last few months, we’ve been featuring Dubby with collaborative projects and now we see him on his own. With a help with features from Cal Mobley, M. Maggie, Semmi, and Choo Jackson.
My favorite tracks off of Heart And Havoc are Brother, Leading The Lost, Chase, Time Machine, Oracle Arena, Lemmi Know, and Loosen Up My Tie. I will be reviewing my favorite tracks and why they really stand out to me.
[01. BROTHER] This might be the most intense song I’ve heard in awhile. Dubby opens up about his closest friend who he saw like he’s brother, dealing with mental issues. He felt more he’s brother was dealing with demons because of how crazy it was. You can hear Dubby’s passion with his demeanor on BROTHER. I can visualize what Dubby went through, he has a way with words and how can you not see it.
[02. LEADING THE LOST] Dubby can also get melodic, which is not a bad thing at all. The track also features Cal Mobley. I like when these artist collaborate with one another. I find them to make some pretty dope music together. The concept behind this track that if your actions inspire one to become more, you are a leader.
[03. CHASE] I can say this one has to be my favorite tracks off of Heart And Havoc. The overall ambience it brings is so majestic. But besides this song is epic, you have to see the visual to it. And here it is:
See more of what I thought about the visual with my reaction to watching Dubby’s music video to CHASE:
[05. TIME MACHINE] This is really another favorite off the album. The track also features singer M. Maggie. I really like the vibe to this one. Dubby explains the concept of this track “you can never truly hide from life’s demons. They live inside you. You must fight“.
[06. ORACLE ARENA] Dubby discusses his fight with demons. Doing things he’s not supposed to, lying, cheating, pretty much up to no good. The message behind this track is our envy lasts longer than the happiness of those we envy. I really like his flow on this one.
[07. LEMMI KNOW] Featuring Semmi, this track would fit perfectly in a club/party scene. This track is filled with fast hard-hitting bars. The track embodies the If I Ride, We Ride.
[08. LOOSEN UP MY TIE] Times can get rough and you find yourself searching for an escape from reality. You might be able to get away for a little by finding the right outlet. This track features Choo Jackson. Here’s where Dubby’s lyrics brings us a visual to his story. And also the hook is catchy.
“This is the first time I’ve sold my music in 8 years. The last time was when I was pushing my mixtape for $5 in my high school hall way. The growth of the sound and the hustle have really paved the way for the TLA movement and I’m extremely proud and excited to finally have a project the exemplifies that growth. It’s been a long time coming.” -DUBBY

[SOUTH CENTRAL PENNSYLVANIA] Dubby of Team Loko releases his latest single called ROWDY! Not crazy Rowdy, but more like a calm cool collect vibes. This track is meant to unite the 717 hip-hop scene with collaborating with Dutch Money. According to Dubby of Team Loko “I think anytime you bring multiple fan bases from the same town or city together through music, they appreciate each others music more whether that be fan to fan or artist to artist. I don’t know that it will fully unite the 717, but it’s definitely a step in the right direction“.
Lately, in Gettysburg hip-hop scene they’ve been working hard and it’s hard not to notice. Both representing Dubby’s hometown, this single is something to ride to and something that’s meant to be played at the club. ROWDY was produced by The Cratez. Very catchy hook, seems to stay on my mind. Be on the look out for what Team Loko Affiliates have in stored for Dubby’s release of his upcoming project Heart & Havoc.
Heart & Havoc is Dubby of Team Loko’s EP which is set to drop early spring on iTunes. There are a-lot of cool features on there including Choo Jackson who is part of Mac Miller’s Most Dope Label. Dutch Money and Dubby of Team Loko make some pretty fire music together, this collaboration is worth to see what else 717 has to offer.
