All for one and one for all

A while back we started introducing new artists every week - ones that we collaborate with or are inspired by. Last week was all about that soft singer/songwriter sound, this week we're bringing back the hardcore and raw, more specifically - a mixture of Logic, A Tribe Called Quest and Yelawolf. Yes, a flow that you will rock your boat. A few weeks ago StreetRacer Productions met Joshua Andrew Boyer, more commonly known as DOSENATION, a South Jersey rapper striving for something bigger than just the fame and success of his own words. From 2007 to today the solid work has paid off and you will find Joshua across the web, on many different platforms - growing his nation. We've had the pleasure of learning a bit more about the artist and his vision, keep reading and you'll see why this rapper has so much more to give!

What is your earliest memory of music, and how has it impacted you?

My earliest memory of music is watching my Uncle Steve make beats in his apartment. I was so fascinated with how everything worked that I became eager to learn the language of music at any cost. This Art had me at Hello.

Who are some of your greatest influencers, and who do you hope to one day influence?

My greatest influences are A Tribe Called Quest, De La Soul and B.I.G. I hope one day to influence our youth into doing the right thing and spreading a message through music. Drop beats not bombs.

What do you think sets it apart from all the other great rappers/artists out there?

What sets me apart from the rest of the artist are that I never spit the same flow. I have the ability to switch it up in a moments notice and not think twice about it. I've always seen it like this "Create your own lane, competition can't compete with originality"! I have the ability to connect with people by the masses. Being a artist your fans need to be your number one priority, without them you are NOTHING.

What can we expect to hear and see from DOSENATION in the near future?

This year will be filled with a lot of Shows (expect a great time with a lot of excitement,energy and good vibes), my clothing, contest held by me, meet-and-greets and a possible tour (as of right now my locations are NJ|PA|NY). I am very excited for what the future holds.

What are three things you cannot live without?

There are only 3 things in this life I cannot live without and that is my family, music and God. I find faith in all of them, become part of something bigger than this life, follow the movement and become part of the nation #DOSENATION.

Late Nights

A while back we featured rapper Damian Johnson on the blog with his mixtape, "Conscious for Currency". Today he is back with yet another hot mixtape, "Late Nights", which will be released January 31st on Datpiff.com, available for you to listen to and download for free! But let me first and foremost introduce you to the great Damian Johnson...

Could you tell us a little bit about your vision behind this upcoming mixtape?

" I wanted to open up a world where you can listen to music and take what you want from it. It’s a perfect blend of my inner thoughts and my secret fantasies. "

How would you describe the sound of your mixtape?

" I would consider it a fun hip-hop/ party sound. I love to challenge the mind and keep it working but at the same time make good music.  "

Where do you get most of your inspiration from?

" My mother has to be my biggest supporter. From advertising songs to coming to shows. She keeps me moving forward. "

What is your earliest music memory? Do you remember when you started rapping?

" It’s funny because I first started rapping when I was in the 6th grade and my friends would always tell me to shut up. It was one of the only things that I was passionate about. I got better and started making music that they even move to now. "

You've worked with Streetracers a bunch of times, how would you describe your experience collaborating with the producers?

" You can never have too much Streetracer! The best Production team I have ever worked with. They create new sounds that constantly keep you on your toes as an artist. I look forward to more collabs. "

What are your future goals?

" To create a brand of music that the world will recognize and keep making positive moves in life. At the end of the day, I want to read over my life’s story and be proud of each chapter. "
