Trinity “Vote No” rap produced by Dallas Rapper Dooney
I was tipped off today on a song that the Vote No! Save the Trinity folks are hoping to use to defeat the Trinity Parkway Referendum. It's a rap produced by local talent urging citizens to get out and defeat the proposition.
The ad is scheduled to run on local hip hop stations K104 and 97.9 The Beat, but I don't think it's made it to air yet. According to one person I spoke with, some of the Trinity Vote (Yes) people were upset by the ad and are contemplating ways to create backlash against it.
Local gospel rapper Dooney (Peculiar Records) performs the song which urges"…ease up on the traffic, ease up on the taxes, November the 6th come out by the masses." Dooney has also produced a song for Deputy Mayor Pro Tem Dwaine Caraway titled "Pull Yo Pants Up."
My take on the song; fine work as always by Dooney. Peculiar Records has had a link on this site since the beginning. Well produced music, insightful lyrics, it's hard to believe that they packed so much information into 60 seconds.
And don't think they just picked some random cat to read some words that somebody wrote for him. Dooney is big in the community, visiting schools, putting on concerts for youth groups and releasing positive music.
The Trinity Vote people better hope this doesn't make the air, because if it does, listeners will bob their heads all the way to the polls and Vote No with Dooney. I signed the petition and am officially on the fence, but Dooney's got my ears ringing.
Hear the song for yourself.
