Austin’s Dubbo is poised to be one of Texas’ latest to leave their stamp on the game. The boisterous rapper’s appeal hinges upon a belligerent flow and magnetic presence, comprising his artillery-like musical aesthetic. After clawing his way up the ranks, Dubbo has developed a “by any means necessary” mentality. He’s not here to play games — he’s here to win.
Leveraging his immediate resources and surroundings, Dubbo has cultivated a formidable online music profile. His catalogue is explosive, whose energy is further illuminated by his compelling ensemble videos and raucous live shows. In a competitive landscape, Dubbo’s voice cuts through the clutter; he cannot be stifled.
Armed with a fierce grit, hustle, and vision, Dubbo is also the leader of the Texas-based imprint, Double O Records, which, as part of Dubbo’s signing to Babygrande, has struck a joint venture deal with the New York-based label. Double O Records, helmed by indie executives Donny Cash and Cady Falkner, uses their discerning ear to identify the diamonds buried in Texas’ cavernous artist pool.
Following the success of his last single, “Valero,” Dubbo has dropped his latest single and video, “Beat Up The Belly 2.”
Dubbo has significantly evolved as an artist, crafting his lyrics to match the energy of his music. “Beat Up The Belly 2” showcases those developments; however, despite the intensity of the track, Dubbo makes his work look effortless. On top of a daunting piano melody and booming 808s, Dubbo wastes no time introducing himself; as soon as the beat drops, he’s in go-mode, moving methodically between sections while sustaining the level of energy that’s expected of him.
