Feeling a bit camera shy



It's been a long road to releasing his first record

As he talks about on the song "Mama don't cry", Dolla was born in New Orleans as one of 14 children. Overwhelmed by the tremendous task of raising these children, she was forced to give him up to a foster home where he was raised. But it is the drive to make his mother proud and show her that everything turned out okay that is one of the emotions that drives Dolla's work.

Hard-luck stories of difficult childhoods are typical in rap music nowadays, but it's not something that Dolla dwells on. His songs are about going to the club, meeting women, hanging out with your boys, and generally enjoying life. And anyone who hears his first record is guaranteed that, a good time.

"I don't want to make people sad or angry", Dolla says of his work, "I just want to make people feel good. That's what makes me feel good". Dolla, who doesn't smoke or drink, feels that having a good time doesn't mean you have to throw your life away.

After years of struggle Dolla hooked up with producer Brent Hoover and together they created PowerHungry Records. This album is the first release for both the label and Dolla, but albums by artist Lost Cause and Fleetwood are in the works.

Although influenced by the works of Too Short and Scarface his music is decidedly different, carrying with it a lot of the Southern flavor from his upbringing in Louisiana.
