“Behind B.A.R.S.” takes the reader through a harrowing journey of the rise, rhyme, and redemption of the the Greatest Battle Rapper of our generation. Both tragic and triumphant, exhilarating and exciting, all fans of Hip Hop will be shackled by this amazing journey.

In MAGAZINE on February 18, 2013 at 1:54 pm


Dolo The Bandit and his history reads like the epic saga of a great super hero who arose from the ashes like a phoenix.  Surviving a shotgun blast to the face in 2010, it appeared to be all but over for the upcoming New York MC.  In total storybook fashion, somewhat like the hero of a classic martial arts film, Dolo was saved by providence, vanished off the grid and revamped and honed his skills to reappear triumphant on the music scene.

2011 was a year of achievement and reward in this game of thrones for the Super Rap MC, he was nominated as “Most Original Artist” at the Underground Music Awards; received feature placement for his song “Get Down” in Spike Lee’s feature film, “You’re Nobody til Somebody Kills You” and stood out as one of only three featured songs in the film.  Joining Dolo in this honor was Ice T and his protégée Black Silver with their cut “Chevy ‘64”. 

Hailing from New York, Dolo the Bandit is a testament to the legacy born in the seat of power of the worldwide Hip Hop Kingdom.  Hard work and dedication have earned this emcee a place at the table with those shaping the future and ensuring the return to quality Hip Hop for the masses.

“Roach clips” is the lead single from Dolo’s upcoming album “Project Monarch” & can be purchased on the link below.

Snoop Lion aka Snoop Dogg plans to invest in Pro Soccer Team

In MAGAZINE on November 19, 2012 at 2:32 pm

Inspired by the Celtic Champions League group-stage upset against Barcelona that made Rod Stewart cry, Snoop Dogg (now Snoop Lion) has decided that he wants to invest in the Scottish champions. Even though he didn’t really watch the match.

Said Snoop to the Daily Record:

“I got a lot of interest in soccer. It’s not a new thing for hip-hop stars to invest in sports teams, but it is a new thing for hip-hop stars to invest in soccer teams.

“I didn’t catch the whole Barcelona game, but I watched the highlights. I know Barcelona are a big deal, and it shows Celtic are a big deal as well.

“I see how passionate Celtic fans are about their team, and I could see myself making an investment if any of the board wanted to sell.

“I haven’t really thought how much. I don’t need to run a soccer club but enough of a percentage to get me on the board so I can be heard.

“I want to bring a bit of Snoop to things.

But before you start thinking Snoop is rushing into this decision, know that he was pictured wearing a Celtic shirt in 2005, and he’s already asked his friend David Beckham about the club, who confirmed that “teams don’t come much bigger,” according to Snoop. The rapper-turned-reggae act then added that one of his first orders of business as a member of the Celtic board would be to sign Beckham “for a season,” but he knows that will be difficult since the L.A. Galaxy midfielder is happy in Los Angeles with his family.

And just to prove that he knows the club and has an eye for talent, Snoop added that Georgios Samaras — yes, Georgios Samaras — is his favorite player.

“I like Samaras a lot. He looks like a proper athlete and is a pretty dangerous player. If we are to go far in Europe, he needs to play well.”

Here’s Georgios Samaras looking taken aback by that statement…



To his credit, Snoop has become a fan of the sport in recent years and he’s played a few games of FIFA 13. For his last European tour, he did a series of promotional YouTube videos wearing the shirts of clubs in various cities he stopped in, so he knows that pandering to football fans can be fruitful. But the prospect, no matter how slim, of Snoop and Rod Stewart sharing a tearful embrace at Celtic’s next historic win is an exciting one.
