FRESHNESS: The Doppelgangaz



The Doppelgangaz call themselves a “ghastly” duo, a better word may be “famished.” These two, Matter ov Fact and EP, sound like their stomachs are touching their backs; resulting is quality Hip-Hop music.

The Smoking Section highlighted their thoroughly fresh “Good Hygiene” while the The Ghastly Duo EP [MediaFire] they dropped a little while back is worth checking. The beats have a steady, bop inducing appeal (check “Raw N Rugged”) and the funnily self-deprecating rhymes are capable. The strongest tracks are the marauding “2012 or Forever” [listen below, sounds like the drums were jacked from “Paid In Full”] and the suave “Raw N Rugged (Smooth Mix).”″

These two upstate New Yorkers are signed to Six Figga Entertainment; lead by producer Darrell “Digga” Branch (who is responsible for joints like Cam’Ron’s “357,” Jay-Z’s “What They Gonna Do, Pt. II” and 50 Cent’s “Many Men”). It’s a safe bet Digga has good taste and you get the feeling his signees are only just tapping into their potential.

It’s a little too early to call how far The Doppelgangaz are going to go in this frazzled rap game (their  debut album will be called  2012: The New Beginning) . But it’s already shaping up to be a journey worth witnessing listening to.
