A dark, dungy, abandoned warehouse feels like the only appropriate setting for the new “H.I.T.H.” video from upstate New York rappers The Doppelgangaz. For years the ghastly duo of Matter Ov Fact and EP have been making dungeon rap with a twist of sardonic humor, and now they’re gearing up to drop their 11th official release Beats For Brothels, Vol. 3 on December 18.
What you’ll get from the tape is what Dopp Gang fans have come to expect – smooth, sparse beats under quirky, well-written rhymes, just in time for winter. A lot of “women, hard drugs, and rubbing alcohol” went into the making of the project, and if you rep that Black Cloak Lifestyle, you already know consistency is the name of their game. Their music has always had a subversively escapist element (think Beatnuts crossed with Dr. Octagon), and with each project they’ve continued to refine their sound. Doppelgangaz are those kids at the party that don’t make a scene – their subtle magnetism and sharp wit just attract all the right people.
Watch “H.I.T.H.” above and pre-order Beats For Brothels, Vol. 3 right here. Plus, hear their other single “Gangaz 4 Life” below.
