If there’s one thing I can take away from this whole experience with Dough-Boy, it’s that going against the grain can pay off. Dough-Boy is one of the most sought-after names in Hong Kong’s burgeoning hip hop scene, and his work speaks for itself, but underneath all that acclaimed hustle, he’s got zero ego and a pretty timid demeanor. I’ve had the pleasure of taking the backseat into Dough-Boy’s daily grind, getting to know him behind the rapper/producer exterior he puts up.
Watch “Dough-Boy Unplugged: Ep 1 | Wrestling, Going Topless, and Bullying Seanie P”, where Dough-Boy takes me through some of his unconventional musings, throws down some of the quirkiest punchlines, and offers a sneak peek into some of the stuff he’s working on.
Having grown up primarily in Canada and Singapore, the producer/rapper is familiar with doing tracks in English, but when he returned to Hong Kong in 2007, he became a producer for local hitmakers like MC Jin, Sammi Cheng, and Jill Vidal, and started making music in Cantonese, creating a whole new wave of artistic expression for the local music scene.
In the next few episodes, we dive deeper into Dough-Boy's underground hobbies, including his fascination with wheels. Stay tuned for the next episode of Dough-Boy Unplugged.
