Disrupt Magazine Featured Interview: Behind the Scenes Of Doug the Plug

Just recently Inglewood’s very own Doug the Plug has just released his brand new video for “Say What”. So far the video has caught fire on Youtube and is continuing in its early viral stages. With success on the verge, we’ll be learning what exactly lies in the mind of the fast surging rapper.

Tell us about your background getting to where you are today?

It has been a long road. I come from where respect is not given, it’s earned. I’ve dealt with a lot of adversity, and finding myself in the music. I’ve always been one to put others on my shoulders to help them reach their goals and in return, I’ve always seemed to have to work 10x harder, but you can see the work I put in through my craft.

Where are you from and when did you start music?

I’m from Inglewood, CA. City of Champions, I dropped my first album 2016 ‘The Jordan Tape’. I produced half of the records on the album, recorded, mixed & mastered them.

What is the most challenging thing you have overcome in your life?

The most challenging thing that I have to overcome in my life, is not valuing the opinions of my peers so much. Sometimes I think I care too much.

How did you get into music?

I used to beatbox at school growing up. I messed around in a garage band and freestyle a lot with my friends. I went to the military after my pops died. While I was there, I had a friend who was playing a beat from his phone. He told me he made it an app. This was like 2012. come to find out the makers of the app had actual hardware so i bought it. I started making beats, and then I needed people to rap on my beats. I had got a crew together. Recording the songs was also hard, because it didn’t sound like they did on the radio. I then discovered ProTools. It was challenging to learn, I didn’t know how to mix, mix a beat, any of that. So that was when I decided to go to school to learn how to engineer. I was gonna be self made. and here we are today.

Are you currently signed or independent?


Who inspires you the most musically?

The people who inspired me the most, if I had to choose a top 5. It would be, Drake, Kendrick, Lil Wayne, Future, and Jay-Z.

What do you want people to take away after listening to your music?

I want them to appreciate the authenticity of it. I want them to have fun with it. I want them to actually listen to the lyrics of what I’m saying and see me and put it together. Treat me as if I’m there, because I’m right there.

What is the purpose/reason driving you to pursue music?

Because I love it and I can actually rap. And not only do I rap, its a whole creative process behind it. I love the feelin’ I get when my song is played and see people nodding there head to my songs. I know everybody isn’t going to like every song, but I guarantee you that you will remember the lyrics of one of my songs and it would be stuck in your head and you would be nodding.

What is your greatest achievement as a musician?

Learning how to record my own records and making beats. I can create whenever I feel like it.

Do you produce your own music? If not, who do you work with?

Yes, a lot of times. Cory Orlando played a big part in my music, we started together. I also like to get beats off youtube just to come up with songs.

Who is one artist you wish you could work with?

Thugger or Drizzy.

Tell us about any new music you have coming out?

Just Dropped a song, called ‘Say What’ with Money Masss on all streaming platforms. I’m thinking of releasing a mixtape. I’m pretty sure I’ll release a mixtape early in 2021.

What does a day inside your shoes look like?

Making beats and making writing daily. Also thinking of visuals to go along with my music to share with my audience and whoever is watching. trying to stay creative and keep to work coming through this pandemic.

Anything else you want the audience to know about you?

I have a ton of music coming out in 2021 and I can’t wait to hit the stage next year.
