Oakland rapper and musician Do D.A.T. was the MC for last Tuesday’s event “Hip Hop for Justice” where he did a fantastic job keepin’ the crowd into it, but it is clear that he is also a man of many talents you should become more familiar with.
From his website:
“One interaction with Do D.A.T and you’ll quickly figure out that he’s not the average artist coming out of the Bay Area’s music scene. Listening to a few songs will leave you with the understanding that this is an artist with a passion for making quality music. Do D.A.T. is all smiles. If you were one the bay area’s most promising young personalities, you’d be smiling too.
Many people believe that hip hop is dead. Do D.A.T. is evidence that hip hop is not extinct, but that Hip hop has evolved.
Listen to his music and decide for yourself.”
This past May, he released his second album, the Duke Ellington-inspired “Oakland in Blue”, which is now available on iTunes and CDBaby. One listen and you’ll hear how he stands out from other local rappers and is raising the bar for a new-era of jazz-rap artists. Check these links out and look for him performing in the Bay Area and beyond in the near future!
