Describe your sound in 3 words
Gritty, witty, and powerful.
Tell us a few things about your new song D.D.. What is the story behind it?
D.D. is a dark fairy tale. More like a nightmare, I guess. B.C. is just totally lost in life, putting himself and others at risk. He doesn’t realize there’s a way out until a near death experience, and meeting Doso. It’s simultaneously supposed to be absurdist. Life is hell. BC’s robot saved him. At least, temporarily.
Which is your most personal and honest lyric?
The first line of the first verse. “Stuck behind the wheel and I’m not in control.” That’s how the human condition and/or mental illness does me. I am just blindly following whatever I think will lead me to some sort of peace or salvation. The more I think I’m in control, the closer I am to losing it.
Do you have an artist that you would describe as a hidden gem that we should know about?
I’m a big fan of Atmosphere. Slug is still killin’ it. I’m 38, so it’s cool AF to see a dude that’s nearly 50 being steezy on the ‘gram. We also have the same birthday.
What would you change in the music industry?
It’s not just the industry but humanity, in general. Superficialities have harmed the industry. Great artists shouldn’t have to be sexy, interesting, or active on social media to gain an audience. Unfortunately, there’s no other way. It’s human nature to be interested in the aesthetics of someone’s life or story.
What is the best advice you’ve been given?
The generic “never give up” from my father. He always liked underdogs. I feel like an underdog in this industry. I’m in my late-30s. I know my chances are slim-to-none. Never giving up means never. Never. Maybe I’ll make my first industry dollar before I die. Maybe.
One last thing we should know about you?
Many people make music. Many people have aspirations. However, BC & Doso are not many people. We are simply a horny MC and his robot friend. Also, Doso is asexual. He does not have sexual thoughts, at all. Please don’t send Doso any sexual DM’s. I repeat, please don’t send Doso any sexual DM’s.
