Feeling a bit camera shy


Hip-hop trio, The Dox, was founded by friends from Sacramento, California when they were just teens. True to the prolific nature of this fluid form, the group has literally recorded the evolution of the genre with a dozen releases in nine years. The Doxan abbreviated form of Goondox and a reference to the 1985 cult classic, The Gooniesfeature a sound that embraces East, West and South Coast styles, making certain that just one never defines them.  

Part beat mixing and overdubbing, part rhythmic rap and funk shout-out, The Doxs music has a stripped down underground vibe at its core. With the groups street-cred edge always front and center, their deft blend of both independent and mainstream hip-hop influences ensure a level of accessibility to those outside of the urban base camp. The Dox are storytellers, giving voice to fans from all backgrounds, with their uncensored and uncompromising truth of the moment.

The Dox members, Styll and Graphk first worked together professionally in III Squad. Cash the Freshman then made it a trio upon his discharge from the U.S. Army. The trio soon changed their name to The Dox and became part of Seattles 2006 Bay Area Bash and later, the 2009 And 1: Ball 4 Real Tour where they performed with such acts as The Jacka, Luni Coleone, T-Nutty, and Celski and Killa Keise (Rest in Peace). The Dox used these tours to establish a core following, ultimately selling 75,000 independently-produced CDs in the process.

With an astounding 12 releases to the groups credit (and a new one on the way), The Doxs catalogue includes: The Money Train LP (2004); West Coast 4 Dummies (2006); I Am Sac (2008); How Bout Dat Vol.1: on da clock (2009); UnorthaDox (2011); Freshman LP (2011); The Stainless Project (2011); To Whom It May Concern (2012); Saclanta (2012); #RealChat Vol. 1 (2013); Ya Favorites Favorite (2013) and Outer Limits (2013).


The groups tracks always fuse street-smart hooks with complex wordplay that tell of lifes pain and gain. Standouts include: Turn It Up, a beat-heavy everybody-get-up-and-feel-good cut with a hypnotic vocal by producer Finguz; Evo, a trunk-banger that puts these 4G rappers in the same league as the once it phone; Land Hoe a self-proclaimed ghetto rules of engagement song dedicated to their girl groupies; Home Sweet Home, a sobering look into The Doxs hometown of Sacramento and its the rampant crime; Asapolis a striking message of monetary urgency with its world-beat; Come Get It, a smooth and sexed-up anthem; Get It On The Floor, a double-entendre bounce track; and Can I Hit It Like This, a raw-sex chant that is a must-have for any serious collector of The Doxs music.
