Jabee - Shoulda Sold (Dope)

  • Artist: Jabee
  • Track: Shoulda Sold (Dope)
  • Producer: Todd & Brian
  • Album: None (Promo Single)

One of hip-hop’s most prominent archetypes is that of the dope boy who turns to rap in search of a better life. But is the straight and narrow really a reliable pathway to success for aspiring artists? Jabee isn’t so sure. On his latest single, featured in conjunction with the world premiere of Todd & Brian’s official visuals, the Oklahoma City buzzmaker turns the classic hustler-gone-straight narrative on its head, rhyming from the perspective of a struggling emcee wondering whether he Shoulda Sold (Dope) instead. This record is just a loosie, but we’ll keep you posted as we learn more about Jabee’s plans for the months ahead.
