DAWGGONEDAVIS – A “MIDDLE AGE WOMAN” WHOSE “HIP-HOP STYLE” BECAME AN INSTANT GLOBAL SENSATION VIA THE TRACKS ON HER DEBUT EP ‘IN THE DAWG POUND’
This next artist we look to bring to your ears is not what you would expect as being a growing in popularity hip-hop artist, in fact she is not only gaining in popularity, but doing it her way, and with a giggle, a grin and a whole lot a love for the music that influenced her to be “DawgGoneDavis” A.K.A “D.G.D”
Taking a unique, hilarious, erudite, self-effacing and no holds barred approach to baring her wild and crazy soul and whimsically sharing her truth, rapper, hip-hop artist and lyricist Rebecca “DawgGoneDavis” sparked an across the board, demographic busting global sensation earlier in 2018 with her surprise breakthrough smash “Middle Age Woman – Hip Hop Style.” The track, whose autobiographical title (and super infectious hook) says it all about her unabashed embrace of who she is, is just the tip of the proverbial iceberg, folks. It’s just one of four massive hit singles that Rebecca has gathered to create her offbeat yet “can’t stop listening if you tried” four track debut EP In the Dawg Pound.
“Middle Age Woman – Hip Hop Style,” which invokes her huge appreciation for Neil Diamond, mentions Elvis and the Black Eyed Peas and includes her rap “I likes to rock and I likes to rolls/Shaking my booty in my panty hose,” hit #1 on the influential EuroIndieMusic chart and hit the top spot in Europe, Asia (including Russia) and South America. Her follow up track “Butt on Fiya,” which mocks the breast cancer she beat and finds her compensating for her removed breasts with a genetically blessed rear end, also hit the Top 10 on the EuroIndieMusic Chart.
In her video for Butt On Fiya, D.G.D takes on a personal situation, what some would consider a tragedy, and makes a song of personal triumph, in revealing her bout with Cancer, she takes a punch at the “Shame Game” and wins big.
Behind Rebecca’s silliness, wit, poignancy and Type-A personality is her secret musical weapon, French based collaborator and renowned Euro producer and multi-instrumentalist, Helmutt Wolf. Rebecca records her raps a capella at the Audio Cave studio in her hometown of Kansas City, then sends the wave file off to Wolf to work his sonic magic – which includes anything from sensual, jazzy atmospheres and cool sax soloing, booming percussion and deep soul grooving.
“I was born a goofy jokester,” says Rebecca, the youngest of five children who has an MBA and has been a successful IT professional. “I would write funny holiday story poems for my family each year. I think the combination of being able to see something in my mind or zombies in the sky comes as a genetic gift. Dad was hilarious and mom is deep and practical. From her I got great empathy and real life intuition. In the late 2000s, when I began publishing my books, people started telling me I should put my sad and funny writings to music – and it’s so gratifying to see how gone gangbusters. What inspired me to record these songs? Me being nuttier than a Payday bar, the knowledge and confidence that I have IT, I can do it and am doing it and JESUS!”
All proceeds from Rebecca’s book and music sales go to Operation Breakthrough’s neediest and most challenged babies and children. She is currently gearing up to release her fifth single.
