How Jevon Doe Bounced Back From A Near-Death Experience For "My Life Changed Pt. 1"

West Hollywood, CA – After years independent grind that even left him homeless for a stint, Houston rapper Jevon Doe has been making a name for himself in the realm Hip Hop, signing with Atlantic Records just last year. To fully pursue his dreams becoming the best artist he can be, Jevon recently traded H-Town for the City Angels. Now, he shares a side his story that’s never been heard before.

On Thursday (August 17), HipHopDX partnered with Popular Demand and 1800 Tequila to host the ficial listening party for his new EP, My Life Changed Pt. 1. With friends, family, media, and fans all out to support, WCSP in West Hollywood, CA soon reached capacity. Greeted with an open bar and free chicken at the door, the evening quickly turned into a celebration.

During the live Q&A, Jevon Doe summarized his sound, eventually boiling it down to four words.

“It’s got that South in it,” he says. “It’s got that H-town in it. You could feel where I’m from. You could see what I’m reppin’. But it’s also global. I feel like it’s very global. I feel like my voice attracts, so I feel like what I’m speaking about also attracts. I think there’s a lot people in the world that just want to hear somebody just speak some real shit, but sound cool doing it. But really be cool. So I think that’s really what my sound generates: H-Town, South, global, cool.”

Jevon also credits a fellow H-town legend as one the two artists who ignited his desire to rap.

“The first artist I really started liking was Z-Ro. He’s from Houston. From there, it was Lil Wayne. Them two right there really sparked me into wanting to rap. And then on top that, it was Drake, Childish Gambino, Big Sean, those type artists that really kept me trying to get it.”

In 2016, Doe unleashed his debut project Story Of My Life, with features from Bun B, Ty Dolla $ign and Buddy.

He explains, “The first one was Story Of My Life, and this one’s My Life Changed. So pretty much I told people how I got to the point being signed and being here. And then My Life Changed: being out in L.A., being in Hollywood, being around celebrities, working every damn night, being tired as fuck, but still trying to get it. So all that happened.”

Fitting to the name, while Story Of My Life told the tale Doe’s life struggles, his biggest obstacle yet was still to come.

“Also, it branched f a situation that happened with my ex-girlfriend. The whole situation where she came in and did what she did, that gave me that motivation to really want to tell people, ‘I’m really in this shit. I’m out here trying to get it, and I got people trying to hold me down.’”

The second record on the EP, “Angels Protecting Me,” recounts the evening his ex-girlfriend showed up at his doorstep with her brother and three other guys. Beyond a home invasion, Jevon was beat up and held at gunpoint. It left him with two broken hands.

With the reality what was happening in that moment, Jevon reveals the only two things crossing his mind: “What the fuck was going on and I hope I don’t die.”

While the ficial music video sees Jevon retelling the evening in detail, DX asked how it had impacted him mentally.

“Yeah, they fered me therapy. The city and all that,“ he said. “But I never went to it. I just didn’t have time. I was in the studio. I had to keep pushing, to be honest. I had to get my stuff — get it back. To this day, I mean, yeah. It does affect me. There’s different things that come from it. But I’m still alive. That’s the best thing about it. Because I could have been gone.”

Turning a negative into a positive, it was clear Doe wasn’t worried about Pt. 2 anytime soon.

“Part 2 … I don’t even know. I may not drop it for a while. I may keep it an open story, and eventually, I close it up. When it’s time for me to close it up.”

Fatboy SSE Pulls Up On The Breakfast Club Demanding "Breakfast"

New York City, NY – “They,” not to be confused with those holding down DJ Khaled,  say breakfast is the most important meal the day — just ask rapper and comedian Fatboy SSE.

A video posted on The Breakfast Club‘s ficial Instagram, and shared by the New Jersey native, documented the hungry internet star as he ran up in the studio demanding breakfast before quickly retreating.

“My BIG BRO @dizz103 told me we were doing The Breakfast Club … we get there, and there’s fucking breakfast,” read the caption on Fatboy’s account. “Y’all know that’s the real reason we came.”

Dizz and Fatboy SSE are no strangers to The Breakfast Club. Dizz, the CEO York Records is an associate DJ Envy — and friend the cast. His artist, Cory North, released his debut music video, appropriately titled “Poppin’ Off,” which featured a fictitious scenario on The Breakfast Club where Cory misses his interview, causing Charlamagne to give him an auto Donkey Of The Day title.

Fatboy SSE has become a huge online property, with over 2.6 million followers on Instagram alone with the help his hilarious videos. His latest song, “Drake” with Lar$$en, is on its way to a million spins on SoundCloud. He also recently popped up in the new Juicy J video.

Fatboy’s run up on the highly rated morning show was (definitely) not to be taken seriously, but rather as another funny addition to the comedian’s catalog.
