DOX DOX… Not to be confused with this DOX

Interview: DOX

Published on July 24th, 2012 | Jonny Abrams

Rocksucker sent over some questions to Brooklyn rapper DOX, who’s just completed his new project #LiveOrDieByIt (United Streets Of America Vol. 3)

How long have you been writing, performing and recording music for?

I’ve been writing since I was 12 years old, and been doing music seriously for about 5 years. I just always had a deep passion about music so it became something that I naturally gravitated to.

How would you describe your music, if pushed?

I would describe my music as extraordinary. At the end of the day, im just an extreme regular guy. My music speaks about things I think the average person with dreams, goals, drive, and a will to win can relate to. I just have a talent to display it musically at a high level.

Where are you based, and what do you use to record with?

I’m based in Brooklyn, NY. About a year ago I invested in a home studio; nothing crazy, just the neccessary pieces I need to record. I own the 3rd edition MBox, and record in Protools 8.

Are you signed to a label? If so, how did you come to their attention?

No, I do not have any contractual agreements with a label at this time.

Is there a full album in the works? If so, what can you tell us about it? (Feel free to be as abstract as you like…)

I just finished my new project entitled #LiveOrDieByIt (United Streets Of America Vol. 3). This has to be the best project I’ve done so far in terms of everything meshing together organically. The project focuses mainly on my will to succeed, and basically explaining to naysayers why their opinions are meaningless to me. It really displays my versatility, lyricism and song-making ability. There are so many types of sounds on the project. I impressed myself when tt was completed, lol.


Where can we hear your music online?

You can check out some of my music @ www.doxforever.com, or on my blogsite, www.DOXForever.blogspot.com

My site is pretty dope, you can check out my latest videos and exclusive releases here. For those who want to keep up with my releases, interviews, shows and events I highly suggest that you follow me on twitter @DOXmusic

Which have been your most exciting gigs and/or overall moments so far?

I’ve performed all over the city, but my most memorable show was at Crash Mansion. I set the show up myself and did my best to promote it. At the end of the day I didnt have an impressive turn out, but what I did have was a small group of people who fucked with my music that rocked out to my whole set. I performed my heart out and the response was amazing. The experience was humbling, but at the same time gratifying.

Got any more coming up? (Gigs, that is…)

I actually have a show coming up on July 25th. I’m pretty excited about being the headliner at the Overtime Concert Series Event next week @Pyramid. I have a history with these promoters. I love the way they set up their shows and was more than willing to accept their invitation to headline at their next showcase.


Are there any obscure and/or up-and-coming acts that you’d like to recommend or give a shout-out to?

I wanna give a shout out to D. Julien a.k.a my brother from another, Joya Bravo, Scolla, and my dude J-Nyce. They all were featured on my last project Live Or Die By It. I am a fan of each one of those artist and was very grateful to have worked with them. Check them out when you get a chance.

Finally, if you were forced to spend the rest of your days in solitary confinement, but were allowed to bring the entire works of five different artists along to tide you over, whose would you choose?

Jay-Z (Reasonable Doubt), Marvin Gaye (The Best Of), Curtis Mayfield (Best Of), John Mayer (Continuum) Nas (It Was Written).

DOX, thank you.
