“Coming Back Hard”
The southside Atlanta legend, 1/2 of the Playaz Circle, Dolla Boy is making a comeback to the rap game with new street album “Coming Back Hard”. A little over a decade ago, Dolla Boy was in a group with his childhood friend 2 Chainz (then known as Tity Boi) and after many years of persuing rap stardom independently, they signed a major deal under Ludacris’s label Disturbing The Peace, which was backed by Def Jam Records.
The height of Dolla’s career came about in 2007 when Playaz Circle released the hit single “Duffle Bag Boy” which featured Lil Wayne. The single went national, charted in the top 25 on Billboard and the Duffle Bag Boyz extended their crew while following up with a few more regional hits in the years following the big hit.
After a few legal and label troubles the group later disbanded, while 2 Chainz later became successful once again after going solo. Dolla Boy faced incarceration, left the rap game alone and focused on raising his family while starting a few business ventures of his own. He didn’t completely abandoned music, as he helped mentor a few artists under the Duffle Bag umbrella while also doing a few features, mainly a major feature on his former partner in rhymes (2 Chainz) debut solo album. Dolla Boy never lost his love for his craft and has finally returned with all new music in his latest solo street album “Coming Back Hard”
Dolla Boy’s “Coming Back Hard” is a 10-track original mixtape/album whose title and cover art was inspired after 8ball & MJG’s first album Coming Out Hard. Dolla’s return starts with a soulful intro where he preaches his street gospel vividly as the street music he once knew has now became a forgotten art form and dedicates this part of his career to the people who are no longer here to see or (hear about) the boss he has become today.
“Coming Back Hard” only has a few features from southside Atlanta street notable rappers Yosa, Rio Diego, DooWop and Rico Richie. The production comes from Big Hurt Tracks, Exotic, Smurf100it, 808 Mafia, Ready Rock, Southern Folk and others.
If you was to have a conversation with someone who was actually raised in Atlanta during the early 2000’s about who had the lyrics that the streets respected, Dolla Boy’s name would definitely be mentioned. And judging from the sound of “Coming Back Hard” Dolla Boy still got it.
