Since their humble beginnings in 2021, the Knoxville TN based rap Presario, King Doug has been signed to the independent label FreqShow Records, run by Brian Cody. He is a former member of the DJ collective Oversat, who went viral back in 2013 when everyone still considered that bad thing when they released “Then We Gon Get Drunk.”
Since coming on board FSR King has released 6 double albums in a two year span of time. King Doug is on radio rotation with the track “Half On An 8”. This track in particular is a prime example of KD’s hypnotic blend of trap and RB. When I asked him what the song was all about after hearing it initially last year he peered at me through a dark pair of Rayban’s and flashing a mouth full of bling he simply said “Its about a hustling.” What people in the hood do to turn a quick buck. They go half on an 8ball.” The female vocal tracks were recorded by Mo Dixon and Chelle Goins. Chelle tragically passed away just a few days after recording this. RIP Chelle.
