Eric Williams, professionally known as Doobie, is an upcoming artist from Greenfield; a neighborhood located in Columbus. Doobie was born February 4, 1995, and set his sights on a musical career as a teenager. It didn't take long for him to secure a home with SCFMG Records.
Early on he was inspired by the once famous Ohio rap group, Bone Thugs in Harmony. The group, which was popularly known as Bone Thugs, had several hit songs in the 1990s.
Doobie sound has continued to evolve over time. He has released several popular songs with his long time best friend, Krash Minati. Though recently Doobie has been releasing a lot of music by himself, and seems to be focusing more on his solo career.
What fans seem to love most is that his lyrics seems to have a unique style almost all of it's own. With all his creativity, hard work, and the great team that he has working with him - Doobie is proving to be an artist that you need to remember.
Doobie spent much of his early career collaborating with other artist. He continues to be featured on many recent albums by fellow performers including Smileyface and Jelly Roll.
About five years ago, while collaborating in the studio, he caught the attention of a local DJ. Arguably, this was a pivotal moment which helped jump start Doobie's career. It undoubtedly helped boost his popularity within the genre.
DJ Hylyte is also a local of Columbus, Ohio. When he stumbled upon Doobie in the studio, it's safe to say he was impressed as it didn't seem to take long for the two to begin working together. In an interview with the Crash Out Crew, Doobie describes his connection with DJ Hylyte as a "dream come true".
Doobie has been very busy during the past couple years, and it shows. Doobie spends a lot of time working; recording new song, performing on tour, as well as filming some of his wildly unique music videos.
In the interview mentioned above, Doobie credits much of his success as a byproduct of his business relationship with DJ Hylyte. Doobie describes it as one with open communication. He also expresses the fact that they work constantly.
Doobie released Doobie 2 Treed 2 in 2017. The mix tape is arguably his most popular yet, and includes 10 original tracks.
Doobie is also spending the majority of his time on road. I first stumbled upon Doobie in Knoxville, Tn as an opening act for Jelly Roll during the Addiction Kills tour, in 2017. I was immediately intrigued by his sound, and the more I dug through his music, I became a fan of Doobie Bvndit.
Jelly Roll and Doobie have collaborated on multiple songs together. They have been well received by fans, and Doobie is quickly gaining popularity.
Doobie has a unique style, and a great amount of talent as a rap artist. His rhymes are smooth, his lines are clever, and his beats are nothing short of amazing. However, I can't help but label it is rather experimental. I mean this in the best way, almost as if Jack White had touched rap music.
I plan on paying a lot more attention to this artist as he continues to reach new heights in his career. Recently, Doobie has released several new music videos on YouTube. It appears as he is off tour and working hard in the studio cutting new tracks. Go check it out!
It shows that Doobie is doing what he loves, and it comes naturally to him.
In my opinion, Doobie Bvndit has just got the ball rolling and it's not going to slow down anytime soon.
