East Coast underground legend R Dollas drops hard-hitting new album ‘All 4 Tha Dolla’
UTICA, NY – The new album from East Coast hip-hop underground legend R Dollas is the epitome of a street album with a lot of punches. But even as such, “All 4 Tha Dolla” is an album that will invite listeners to get up on their feet and dance. The distinct 90s vibe has a new-age bop to it that creates a truly modern-day New York feeling. Produced by hip-hop legend Rick Hyde, the album is a perfect showcase of the supernatural talent of R Dollas and his ability to weave witty words with hard-hitting lyrics that are simultaneously relatable and challenging.
“My creativity and the story I tell is what has been setting me apart for the past 15 years,” R Dollas said. “I try not to really fantasize too much and just keep everything realistic. Ultimately I want my music to be known for motivation and hopefully helping someone who understands my story and is going through the same things. They can see where I came from and where I’m trying to go and use that as motivation for themselves.”
R Dollas said he’s been rapping since he was 8 years old, and has been recording professionally since his teenage years. His first big track was a collaboration with the notorious Big Casanova, and since then he’s released multiple mixtapes, albums, EPs and hit singles. Over the years he’s become known as a savvy artist with ambition and creativity who brings a gritty rawness to his lyrics and invites listeners to follow him on his journey.
“Growing up in the projects, music was a way out,” R Dollas said. “When I got in trouble and put on punishment, I would write raps and watch videos all day. Now I basically live in the studio. Doing five years in prison, and then another two years, gave me more than enough to read and write about what I was going through.”
R Dollas said he plans on releasing five videos from the album – “Everybody Gotta Eat,” “Meow,” “Gloves In The Summer,” and “2 Words.” He has also already released the debut single/video for “Groupies.”
