Having signed to J. Cole‘s Dreamville records in 2017, EarthGang – consisting of Johnny Venus and Doctur Dot – have been making big moves. They featured on Dreamville’s collaborative album Revenge of the Dreamers III, and will perform in Europe later this month. In a rap scene where viral stardom is often prioritized over musicality, they inject a dose of well-needed lyricism.
One trip to Mirrorland plays out like a fairy-tale on acid. EarthGang have some superstars collaborators here, we cand find features from Young Thug, T-Pain, Kehlani, Arin Ray and Malik.
Johnny Venus and Doctur Dot prove to everyone that rap groups are on the rise. In a genre overpopulated with solo artists, it’s refreshing to see a duo emerge from the ashes.
