DubbleOO (@therealdubbleoo) – Fresh Out The Wrap Feat. Big K.R.I.T. (@BigKrit)
Born in Seattle, Washington, and raised in the Portland, Oregon, DubbleOO had music instilled in him early. His father was in the R&B group Ladies Choice and toured with Marvin Gaye, and DubbleOO spent his childhood years surrounded by singers and musicians collaborating in his home. At 17, DubbleOO relocated to the Bay Area for college and began to pursue music around the same time, selling homemade mixtapes and eventually forging fruitful relationships with the likes of E-40, The Jacka, Messy Marv, Mistah F.A.B., Cool Nutz, and more. In 2008, DubbleOO sold 5,000 copies, independently, of his debut album, Space Age Hood Slap, and followed that success with Beast Mode Mixtape, Vol. 1, moving 20,000 copies of the tape, a project that found him collaborating with Big K.R.I.T. and others. Next up is Beast Mode, Vol. 2, which includes features from Too $hort, Messy Marv, The Jacka, and more, and will be released for free online in the coming weeks.
