Welcome to The Watchlist: Conversation With a Vision where Straight Official’s own DJ Gea chops it up with a purpose. DO$E is an trendsetting artist who is calling next in music and fashion.


DJ GEA: Let our readers know where you’re from & how did the city you lived in motivate you and push you?

DO$E: I’m from Dallas, Tx. I love being from Texas, I think it’s nothing like a great rapper from the south. It’s something about that southern accent and swag.

How did you get started in music? What was it about music that caught your attention?

I’ve always been a writer and I’ve always loved music. I wrote a lot of poetry and used to read a lot growing up. I’ve always had a passion for music as long as I can remember and I didn’t start writing raps until I was 18.

Where did the name come from?

My best friend came up with it, I had been going back and forth between a few names and nothing seemed to stick. Soon as she suggested Dose it stuck and has been my name ever since.


How long have you been doing music? What has been your biggest accomplishment so far?

I started writing raps at 18, but I didn’t start recording until I was about 20 years old and my biggest accomplishment so far is reaching 10k views on a video that I released called “Check On It.”


What do you bring to the game that no other artist is bringing now?

I don’t want to ride a wave, I want to bring something new, and have my music motivate boss women all over the world. My goal is to bring back music videos that look like movies, and stand out as I get creative with each track and video I release.

In 2023 how do you plan to set the tone?

Consistency. I’ve been making music for about two years now, but I’ve never done so consistently. I feel I’ve taken enough time to duck off and work on my craft and sound. Now I’m ready to elevate and shake the game up with this Dallas swag. 

What are some things you inspire to do with your music?

I inspire to be unpredictable. I want to keep my audience on their toes and engaged for a long time. One of the main things I want to do is be creative and think outside of the box for concepts and my work in the future.


Describe your style of music?

I would describe my style of music as one that incorporates wordplay and switching up my flow. 

What’s your process for writing a song?

Typically I hear a beat and if I’m drawn to it, I can immediately write to it. When that begins I paint a picture in my head and catch a vibe.

Have you had any live shows and if so tell me about your favorite performance?

I’ve only had one so far. It was for a live contest. I was very nervous, but the crowd and judges received me well and it was an amazing feeling!


What single are you pushing and How did it come about? How long did it take you to write it? Who is the producer?
Is there a visual for the song?

I’m about to release my new single “Twelve” on January 31st. There is a visual coming out that I’m planning to drop in mid-February. I’m very excited to drop the visual, it’s my favorite so far. The song was produced by Migueleazy on Instagram. The song didn’t take long, it came to me naturally once I heard the beat, and 30 minutes later I had a hit on my hands. 


Besides music, are there any other ventures you are currently sewing your seeds in?

I went to school and got a degree in Fashion Design and I put my fashion dreams on hold to focus on my music, but now I plan on revisiting that dream and exploring my clothing line. In every video I’ve posted either I or one of my video vixens are wearing original pieces hand sewn by me.

Where do you see yourself in the next 3 to 5 years?

In the next 3-5 years, I see myself finding success within my music and starting my fashion line.

Let the people know how to get in contact with you.
