It’s true that D.O.S. is a man of many diverse talents, having reinvented himself from rapper/performer to a successful business owner and chef. That being said, D.O.S. never lost his love for the mic, and clips like the one above prove it. During a recent Hip Hop Mecca event at the legendary Flamingo Cantina in Austin, D.O.S. jumped on stage with DJ Massiv to perform a few selections from the Ruler Why produced Obey The Raw, and as always, the flow and performance were on point. If you’re looking for your hip-hop fix in Austin, Friday nights at Flamingo Cantina are definitely where it’s at, and mad props to D.O.S. for continuing to grow in all aspects of his creative and professional life.

When it comes to quality hip-hop in the ATX, there’s a handful of names you can always count on. One of those, for many years, has been D.O.S. This time around, he’s collaborated on an EP with Seattle based producer Pale Soul, and the outcome is the memorable Derringer Arts. This is what hip-hop is all about.. raw honesty spilled over dope music. Name your own price is always a good option for an album, but this is worth your money as well as your time. Check it out, spread the word, and support local while you think global.

You already know the drill… D.O.S., Crew54, Jamar Equality, production by Ruler Why, and a bunch of guest appearances in the video? Too Raw is exactly that… raw beat, raw bars and raw visuals from the talented cats at DVZN Media. Automatic dopeness.

from the digital desk of Third Root:
‘Even though some of the content of this remix speaks critically to current events, the ideas and conversations that went into producing and writing this song took place before the Ferguson, Garner, and Brooklyn tragedies. The insight of the poets involved is honest, revolutionary, and seemingly prophetic. This remix is a FREE download. The original version of Michelle Alexander was inspired by Alexander‘s book The New Jim Crow and appears on Third Root and Greg G‘s 2014 album Revolutionary Theme Music.’

A brand new D.O.S. banger, with the assist from Spit Gemz straight out of NY. Authentic is another in a long line of classic Ruler Why productions, and this video was born out of a trip Uptown by D.O.S., and now we’ve been blessed. Share it, and support these cats.
Loving this video from D.O.S. The beat is by Ruler Why, so you already know it’s a banger. The video feels like 1992, 1993 or so… right before Hype Williams took over the visual landscape. Somewhere in the realm of the original Nas videos, or the comeback era Kool G Rap videos. Either way, it’s dope, and there are some familiar faces (and masked faces) sprinkled throughout.
From the digital desk of Eric Morgan (Crew 54):
I caught this piece of a freestyle cipher last night after the show in front of the ND. Raps by D.O.S., Dubb Sicks, Flynn D, Virt and Tray God, with beats by Bryte Blaqu and random other folks. TABLET LIFE SWAG.
