The Most talked about artist in the city of Detroit right now is 42 Dug

The rapper has lived the life of a man double his age. As predicted, he became the product of his circumstances, which put him behind iron poles at age an early age. The defiant young hustler spent a considerable amount of time in solitary confinement, which is where he found his voice in hip-hop. The rapping style of 42 Dugg, whose moniker derives from his neighborhood, rivals no one although artists with similar narratives inspired him such as Yo Gotti, Jeezy and Peezy. His lyrics are also riddled with gritty street observations; angry messages about systematic oppression and unrelenting tales of criminality. Every aspect of his art, from rhymes to stage performances, is grounded in realism.

On his debut project, Young and Turnt, 42 Dugg has a lot to rap about. The overwhelming majority of his songs were penned while in the hole. Writing his truth not only passed the time, but it also fortified his belief in himself and his ability to overcome obstacles. From the prolific “Mama I’m Sorry” to the profound “Free Minds,” the savvy MC flows with passion, precision and in precise detail. But it’s the track, “You Da One,” featuring Gotti that will cement his status as a viable chart-topping artist. From the day he decided to take his shot behind the mic, he knew he wanted to be an inspiration for his generation and that includes the young people that can relate to his transparent storytelling. By connecting with the culture through his pain, 42 Dugg has been able to grow a solid fan base and also create a major label bidding war. He is everything that hip-hop represents, an authentic and raw talent who has overcome extreme difficulties that would break the average.

TINY JAG DENIED PROMO FOR ANTI-PATRIARCY VIDEO
Detroit’s Tiny Jag is a rapper, singer/songwriter known for conveying relevant messages throughout her music. One of her most consistent; the empowerment of women. Recently, Tiny Jag released a vibrant visual to her single ‘Bizarre,’ challenging the traditional story of creation and Adam and Eve.
Tiny Jag on her intentions with the ‘Bizarre’ Music Video:
“We hear about Eve’s shortcomings at a very young age. Many of us are influenced by that to view women as inadequate before we can even understand what we’re digesting. I wanted to challenge that narrative and give its followers a bit of a hard time.”
Shortly after releasing the controversial video via YouTube, Tiny Jag and team began to push the visual for support and promotion. Among these attempts were numerous tries with Facebook (also owning/controlling Instagram). After every tweaked attempt fell short of approval, Tiny Jag realized the concept and message of her work may be what was truly denied.
Tiny Jag on being censored as a woman:
“So I knew we weren’t going to get support for the video if it had cursing or discriminatory lyrics, I avoided those things.  The track/visual do not discuss, promote, or demonstrate sexual acts, no nudity. I mean, it’s a bit out of the box but to censor me for anything short of those things seems discriminatory in itself. I can’t help but believe that it’s an attack against what it represents.”
