YNY Q&A: PAPA DOC

Yeah New York caught up with Queens native PAPA DOC to ask him a few questions about his latest single “D.R.”, his affiliation with Universal, and how fans can relate to his music.

What can fans expect from your soon to be released album and why was D.R. chosen as the first official single?
Fans can expect my album to be cutting edge and pointed towards the future. D.R was chosen as the first single because the flow, lyrical content and beat are different than anything on the radio today. Also, the concept of the song is one that a lot of people can relate to especially those in relationships.

On your twitter you said, “Some times u have to say what’s on your mind so people know just where u stand.” In what ways does this relate to your music/career/life?
The statement that I made is one that I strive to live by.  Through my music, I try to give people a glimpse of who I really am by mostly speaking my mind on my records. In life, I find that people respect those who are not afraid to voice there opinions and stand by them.
