Meet Doc Strange, an up and coming rapper with major keys for success. He has been doing this rap game for a while now and is making waves along the way. We loved to get to know new artists and Doc Strange is an artist you will want to know more about. He’s story isn’t the typical cliche of a rap artist’s lifestyle. It’s refreshing. Check out our interview with the young artist below.
Tell us about yourself and your music.
I can get a lot done in one day. It’s crazy, really. I can run through five, ten records at our studio in Houston on a Monday, and be in Denver going through video footage with my business partner by Tuesday night. That’s a lifestyle that really covers a lot of ground, and I think you could say the same thing about my music. I’m really trying to cover a lot of ground in terms of emotions and subject matter. From drug culture to faith, from flexing to personal progression, I really want to touch on the whole human experience as I’ve seen it.
How would you describe your sound?
It’s different… dark, psychedelic, cinematic even, with a whole lot of bass. Big on using distorted sounds and samples to fill in emotional spaces. Also heavy on progressive song structure.
Talk about the experience making your song/mixtape.
I had started making ‘Anything Is Possible’ three years ago, on the first day I moved into my home studio in Bryan. Ea$y was in town from New Orleans, and we had planned to get lit and run through some tracks. I really liked the record, but at the time I didn’t have any other solo content to put around it. As I was living this ‘always on the road’ lifestyle, working on early Graduate$ and EP content, I started pulling records that gave a good sample of my sound to put around ‘Anything Is Possible’. These four records came together to form ‘Stare Here’, which was put out with the sole purpose of getting you to look in this direction, because greater things are to come.
What are you currently working on? Any new projects? Shows?
I’ve got an EP titled ‘CULT’ dropping in January, two visuals dropping before then, and a few standalone singles coming out over the winter as well. Far as production, I’ve got records coming out on all the other artists in our camp’s projects, and I’m working on an EDM tape with trap producer Fly Eklectic.
What has been your biggest highlight in your music career this far?
Getting the studio space in Houston with longtime engineer and friend Platinum PAT. Four years ago we were broke as fuck recording out of a bedroom, and now we’ve got multiple mixing rooms and a warehouse bigger than the house I grew up in. You really get what you give.
Name your ideal collaboration: mainstream or independent artist(s).
Love to work with Isaiah Rashad, The Underachievers or Azizi Gibson.
Name something random that people do not know about you.
I spent four years working in a drug delivery research lab. I could really teach you how to whip it.
What’s one thing you have learned or discovered while being in the indie music scene/industry?
You have to absolutely love it, almost to the point of obsession. There are a lot of hours invested without pay. Everybody successful has a side hustle or hustles.
What can we expect from you in the future?
Big things in all aspects. Anything else you would like to share with our readers?
