Austin-based rapper Dowrong has been on the scene for a number of years making noise, and like many in 2019, it seems like he’s intent on raising his creative bar in all aspects. Trap on Wheels, his latest release, has more heart in four songs than many artists can achieve in a traditional length LP, both in terms of the way Dowrong spits and what is being said. His energy is high throughout, but his style shifts from song to song, fitting each bit of production perfectly and infectiously. Be it the hypnotic nature of Trap Phone, the organic sounds integrated into I Stay Down, the wall of sound that is G.O.O.N., or the assault on the senses found on In The Streets, there’s something for everyone on Trap on Wheels, so find and stream it on your favorite streaming service sooner than later, and share it around for others to do the same.

As Joe Budden and Charlamagne tha God recently stated in their year-end wrap-up, lyricism is back in a big way these days. That sentiment is definitely true in regards to the Austin hip-hop scene as well. For anyone doubting, exhibit A comes in the form of the latest single from Dowrong of DSR/ALVMNI/LOEG’z. Seasoned producer White Jamal flexes over a classic drumbreak to provide a nostalgia-inducing beat that perfectly suits the testimonial given by Dowrong about his life and ambitions. This is definite mixtape fire right here. Share this one around, and help boost those listen numbers, because tracks like Dowrong’s Prayer deserve to shine.
