Video: Taleban Dooda – “Finish Him” (Prod. TM88 & ATL Jacob)
The Rostrum Records Signee Shares an Intimate Clip of His Buzzing New Single
“At only 18 years old.. his talents are already overly abundant and his potential is probably higher than most up and coming artists you could name off the top of your head.” – Lyrical Lemonade
“He falls into the lane of melodic street rap that acts like YoungBoy Never Broke Again, Lil Durk, Teejay3k, and others are making, but his high-pitched vocals and limitless subject matter set him apart.” – Earmilk
Taleban Dooda‘s pure tenor and mastery of melody makes him a good bet to become Florida’s next breakout rap star. Sharing an intimate portrait of life on the grind, Dooda shares “Finish Him,” his new video. With a beat from TM88 and ATL Jacob, “Finish Him” is an atmospheric and brooding trap ballad, which gives Dooda the space to weave together streetwise witticisms: “My opps don’t pop out, They bring the cops out/I mean they cop out, We still blow blocks down.” In the video, directed by Jacob Hale and produced by Heatwave Global, Dooda shows us how he lives, as he rides in the backseat of a Bentley, mobs in a parking lot with his homies, and prepares for war in a desolate motel room. With over a million streams across platforms since its November 5th release, “Finish Him” is the latest in a line of quality loose singles from the 18-year-old East Tampa native. The track peaked at #8 (US) & #9 (WW) on Soundcloud’s New & Hot Charts (All Genres) and is currently sitting at #31 on the Top 50 All Genre & Hip Hop (US).
Though Taleban Dooda only started rapping at the age of 15, he used his innate sense of melody to gain inroads in his state’s rap scene. After working hard behind the scenes to build a backlog of bangers, Dooda struck gold with “Tru Colors,” his first-ever release, racking up over 2 million streams, generating over 1 million views on its YouTube video, and reaching #18 on SoundCloud’s worldwide New & Hot chart. The teenager kept the momentum going with collaborations with his frequent rap partner Rees Money, and successful video singles like “2 In Da Morning” (900k views). Most recently, the Green Light Music Group/Rostrum Records signee shared “Dis Dooda,” which Vice named as one of the 24 Best Songs of September. Stay tuned for much more from the teenaged rapper as he continues to develop into one of the South’s most exciting rap talents.
