Dooley-O

Lewis Ad

MySpace

Legendary Connecticut rapper-producer-DJ Dooley-O is widely recognised in DJ circles as the first in hip-hop to sample obscure 70's band Skull Snaps' It's A New Day.

After recording an unreleased album for the label Tavdash (one time home to R Kelly), Dooley presented the public access series Graffiti TV and became a mentor figure to funk-curator Egon who would later head prestigious indie Stones Throw. While the label would later release Dooley's single Watch My Moves and Solid would issue a well-received album of back catalogue material under the same name, it wasn't until 2005 that Dooley's first album of new music would finally find a home.

Released on Lewis to rapturous acclaim for it's expertly helmed gritty production and everyman lyrical perspective, I Gotcha proved age hadn't dimmed Dooley's musical gifts.

PRESS:

"Pulls apart modern hip-hop's fixation with materialism and women and questions the motivations of today's rappers. Dooley-O isn't unique in reinventing golden age hip-hop but he is in making it this thrilling." - Metro


"Best hip-hop album of the year." - Knowledge

"Dooley's return could easily be another unearthed nugget from rap's golden age."
- Hip-Hop Connection


"A unique album..." - Undercover

"Dooley-O has been there, seen it and pretty much wrote the book before anyone else you care to mention. It may be a long time coming but this guy has earned his respect." - Update

"This MC from Connecticut's been about for eons but we're glad he's back." - Loaded

"For anyone who appreciates pure, unadjusted hip-hop." - Big Cheese
