DoubleDve is the truth. A Sudanese refugee coming straight out of the Gulfton neighborhoods in Houston, Texas, he carries on his city’s tradition of DJ Screw’s “build-your-own-sound” beatmaking, Bun B’s trill lyrical dexterity, and Scarface’s raw, emotional storytelling. Since the sixth grade, DoubleDve has been rewriting history with his pen. Charged up to make a change, DoubleDve recognizes that the radio isn’t playing the revolutionary rap that has spoken truth to power. And he has made it his mission to write and fight to get the mic back so that he can speak for his people. This documentary/music video introduces the world to this talented artist.
