Q: How did you get the name "DOE Boy Philly?"
Doe boy was my nickname growing up because of my size. I made the acronym "Dollars Over Everything", because the main goal is financial stability & to take care of our families. The Philly of course is for the city I'm from.
Q:What is your favorite meal in Philly? In Atlanta?
Most people would say "A Cheese Steak", but I'm going to say fried chicken, rice & peas & cabbage from J&J's West Indian restaurant in South West Philly. In Atlanta It's probably Gus's World Famous
Q:Who would you say have the largest influence on your music?
Biggie Smalls is my biggest rap influence. 70's Soul Music also heavily influenced me to speak from the heart with emotion.
Q:Vacation is the Bahamas for a week with 2 women of your choice, all expenses paid? Or have a studio for a week and you get to work with any 2 artist?
Can I pick any studio? Lol. Honestly, I'll take the studio for a week. Quad Studios in New York. Jay- Z & Drake would be my 2 artist.
