James L. Tyler better known by his stage name Dough the Freshkid (DTFK) was born in Gary Indiana but raised in South Central Los Angeles. While most rappers start their career by looking for a record deal, DTFK decided to start his independent label Every Penny Counts (EPC). In 2009, DTFK began building EPC Music Group from the ground up. Later that year he and The PUSH came on the scene with his mix-tape Million Dollar Dreams (MDD). In 2012 DTFK followed up MDD with "No More Dreams" (NMD) which has more than 50,000 downloads on the official DatPiff website. DTFK also released 4 unofficial mix-tapes without hitting the mainstream circuits.

DTFK has shared the stage with many mainstream artists including but not limited to DJ Quik, PacDiv, The Kool Kids, Dom Kennedy, Outkast, Wyclef, E40, Wu-Tang Clan, Twista, Too Short, Snoop Dogg, Mack 10, The Dogg Pound, Juvenile, Glasses Malone, The Alkaholiks and Chingy. All in all DTFK is on a meteoric rise. His viral numbers are steadily increasing with huge amounts of followers and subscribers from YouTube, Twitter, Facebook, etc. His music videos are acknowledged by several websites and blogs including, Hip Hop Lead, All Hip, Thisis50, WorldStar Hip Hop, and VladTV.

Currently, DTFK is in the studio working on a new mix-tape project No More Dreams 2 which is set to be released April 2013. DTFK is clearly focused on power moves where he continues to market and promote his brand THE PUSH throughout the colleges, viral, and live performances.
