With “I Got Doe,” Uptown DC representer XO waxes philosophical about the destructive effect of the almighty dollar and paints an overall ominous picture of everything this country was built upon and is now crumbling under (“Hell has a face/ America is its ski mask”). The track dropped over a year ago but his Monumental 2 project (retitled from the far superior and to-the-point working title Capitolism, but whatever) has been so delayed that its only now getting the video treatment, but it was worth the wait. XO appears to have placed a leather couch squarely in the middle of the rather high traffic intersection of Georgia and New Hampshire Aves. and he’s being seduced by some sort of overdressed and money obsessed neo-flapper types. Monumental 2 finally drops July 28th.
And download last year’s 1.1.10 if you haven’t yet, it’s arguably the most cohesive rap full length that DC has ever produced.
