Last year, Doe B was well on his way to becoming one of the biggest rising rappers in the game. Born and raised in Alabama, Doe B was a member of T.I.’s Hustle Gang camp and he was the biggest breakout star. This year, Doe B was set to make his major push to take over the game.
Everything was supposed to start with his new mixtape, D.O.A.T. 4 (Definition of a Trapper). Before this, T.I. had the streets rocking with his “Let Me Find Out” single and the remix with Juicy J and T.I. Last fall, Doe B and T.I. performed at an after party during the 2013 BET Hip hop Awards.
