D-O-E outdoes himself (again) on this disc. From the first unexpected phrase of the cd to the final mind-warping freestyles (whats leaking out of her? ....ewww, nasty) the madman takes us on an epic journey through a world few have experienced and fewer still have survived. Move over P. Diddy, watch your back 50 Cent, Ludacris get the hell out of the way....here comes the Sykophunk rEvolution. - pinball (customer review)


the new cd is so far off the chain that it looks like there's a pitbull at large. i may have to retire...having heard the most musically perfect hiphop cd ever made and that ever will be made. dostah may as well have decended from the sky on a white horse and hurled a beast into a lake of fire. if this shit doesn't go plat then hip hop truly is dead. - techmage (customer review)


i've heard some good hip hop,rap,funk,cow bell, and raw talent before..., but never all together. never until now that is. this shit is the shit and there is no shit about that. i promise if you buy this cd people will try to steal it from you ,its that swell. if your grandmother is comin over you better lock that shit up, ya heard? if you don't know about the D-O-E just keep your eyes (all 3)& ears open dog cause its only a matter of time until he's so big you'll be pissed when he's played out. ghost in reality? - Haywood Jablowme (customer review)


Whoever don't have this yet needs to go on and get it. The beats are tight, the lyrics are real. No one has heard real music til they listened to D-O-E. - freeze (customer review)


YO...THEY AINT GOT ENOUGH STARS TO GIVE THIS SHIT. *****AINT THAT THE TRUTH. *****AINT NO-1 ON THE CHARTS CAN FUCK WITH IT. *****AINT THAT THE TRUTH.***** AINT THAT THE TRUTH? DAMN RIGHT IT IS! - Johnny Ominous (customer review)


this should be #1 on my chart, but people just can't take a chance with a 5 dolla bill these days. come on people, its a fuckin gallon of gas or 13 cigarettes. for pete's sake, you can listen to damn near all of it right here for free. anyho, if you do like it you must get the GREATEST SHITS cd. i heard a bootleg and not only is it off the hook it broke the hook never to be hooked again. if you want it and can't afford it email D-O-E he'll trade you a copy for something i'm sure of it. keep it commin doeboy, peace. - Billboard (customer review)

Bio

His first retail-ready release is entitled Somewhere Between A Retard And A God. That is his self-evaluation in a nutshell, and it doesn't explain a damn thing. He is always representing the number three, striving to find the balance between every pair of extremes: the top of the triangle. The revolutionary observer that analyzes the world and preaches Triple Vision, writing universal poetry in a strange language everyone speaks but nobody can read. Then it's all layered over a beat and catchy production. You nod your head to the rhythm, and he takes that as a "yes" - you feel what he feels, and neither of you know what it really is.

D-O-E (a.k.a. Dostah Shilailee) is a complex individual with a message to send in a constant battle to be heard by the world. He brings to us the rEvolution: Underground, a philosophy and evolution movement that some embrace and some reject. Many people fear the insanity and confusion that comes with D-O-E's knowledge and visions, and some people think it's just straight bullshit. Why is D-O-E so crazy? Because of the accident that put him in a coma untill his "second shadow" gave him another chance at life? Because of the struggle he had growing up in poverty in trailer parks and slums, enduring domestic violence? Because of all the drugs and alcohol induced trying to escape it all? We can't be sure exactly what drives his maniacle mind, but it all results in some awesome music!

Due to the many different genres that it borrows elements from, D-O-E's music had to be given its own name. He calls it sykophunk (pronounced like "psycho funk"), and the name breaks down simply: it's crazy but it'll make you move. Hip hop, electronica, gothic, metal, industrial, trip hop - it's the combination of many styles that gives sykophunk its unique vibe.

Sykophunk, though it still remains a versatile style, has definitely been defined over time. It draws the listener in, arousing their curiosity with mystery and darkness just to entrap them in the undeniable rhythm. And no matter what D-O-E decides to rap or sing about, he is never faking. Even in his most sarcastic lyrics, the listener can appreciate the point being made. His passion for his music is very clear and real, and it is this force that builds an album of songs people can relate to. Not one hit wonders, but powerful and heartfelt music that stands the test of time. It has been a long, hard road to pursue such a creative and passionate style of music, but D-O-E continues to feed his addiction for creating worlds and reaching out to others through his lyrics. The struggle never stops, but neither does the sykophunk. And D-O-E refuses to rest untill the rEvolution: Underground is coming to your town...
