And God said, “Let there be Blue Magic!” Amen! Doughbeezy had us waiting for Blue Magic like Dr. Dre’s Detox. I am thankful that Beezy’s push back date was only a couple of days & not a decade. I am slightly disappointed that Doughbeezy chose not to title this tape Dro & Sweet Tea.
I was first introduced to Doughbeezy via Jodii B. when he tweeted a link to their joint effort called “In The Morning“. After hearing that track I immediately wanted to hear more from Beezy. Luckily I stumbled upon a download link for Reggie Bush & Kool-Aid on his Twitter page. Then I hunted him down in Austin as he was featured on the same bill as Machine Gun Kelly & Dom Kennedy. Needless to say I was not disappointed in his stage presence one bit.
I was super excited to come home on Thursday evening & download Blue Magic. I haven’t stopped listening to it since! My favorite tracks on Blue Magic are “Do It”, “Fuck You”, “Wake & Bake”, “My Car”, & “Grind”.
“Do It” should’ve sampled The Waterboy, “You can do it. You can do it all night long!” That’s what I thought of as I scanned the track list, LOL. But when the notes float into the air you’re transcended into a melodical bliss that leaves you wondering what’s next. Then Beezy blesses the track with his declaration for putting his city on his back & bringing southern rap back to the forefront.
A lot of rappers done it but ain’t did it like I do it. These niggas had they chance but it’s safe to say the blew it. Now it’s my turn to do it, do it, do it.
On “Wake & Bake“ Dough wouldn’t have had to manually break down his veggies if he had a grinder. It cuts back on prep time. Then he would’ve had more time to go to the store to buy his own snacks instead of eating his kids’! I feel him though. Welch’s Fruit Snacks are the bomb!
I just keep the paper Blimpin’. I’m a pimp minus the limpin’. I just wanna roll my weed & eat everything inside my kitchen. I be trippin’, eatin’ my kids’ snacks & drinkin’ all they Capri Suns.
Doughbeezy follows “U And I” featuring Chalie Boy (a tribute to his leading lady) with “Head” (a track dedicated to a pasttime of his). That’s hilarious to me. But “Head” is a good follow-up to “In The Morning” and “Neck” if you’re into that kind of thing.
Of course I love “My Car“ which features Slim Thug & Kirko Bangz. I loved it when I first heard it on Slim Thug’s Houston tape & I’ll continue to love it! Three Houston rappers who I would’ve never thought about putting on a track together made my Summer 2012 jam in December 2011.
“Grind“ samples Sade’s “Is It A Crime”. It’s subtle yet seductive & Beezy’s words are lightly but precisely delivered over the beat.
The young man is steady grinding & it’s been a joy to see him grind his way into the spotlight. It’s good to see someone on the come-up get the recognition that they deserve for their pure talent & hustle.
Y’all be sure to download Blue Magic if you don’t want to be a loser & go out to Warehouse Live on March 23rd to support Doughbeezy in his first headlining show courtesy of Scoremore!
