Dooley KP, a.k.a. Kountry Pimpin, is headed back to Taos for his second appearance at the Taos Mesa Brewery. This gentlemen is originally from Valdosta, Georgia, and is currently residing in Phoenix, Arizona. Since the first grade Dooley only wanted to do one thing — “Rap.”
Watching his influences — like Dr. Dre, Jay-Z, Outkast, T.I., 2pac, Pastor Troy, and brothers Bamboozle & Absolute — master their art, he had hopes and dreams of creating his own name and maybe label. Which is what he created with his “Bemiss Boi ENT,” building his career through touring, collabos, business opps, and heart.
You can find him on youtube, Reverbnation, Facebook, Amazon, etc — and at Taos Mesa Brewery on May 22nd, 2014. Dooley has released several mixtapes, albums, and singles, which are available everywhere online — just type his name in the computer machine. Known for songs titled”Bring it Back” and “Hit the Trap”,Dooley will definitely get the girls twerkin and the guys much happier for it.
At this upcoming show he will be accompanied by road companions Brandon Crookz & Mikael 9 who are actually from California but also currently reside in Phoenix, AZ. Local NM talent will be present as well, featuring artists like Don P, Burro Magic, Envy, Spyda, DJ Halfalive, Young Ace, and Noname. This event was put together by (local) Loudpack ENT-Tarynce Hise working with Taos Mesa Brewery.
So come support your local artists, Taos, you could use a little of that (bigtime). Come dance, enjoy some of that homebrew, get your mind right, and chill out on the Mesa this Thursday with a little Kountry meets the Southwest Showcase.
