22DUBZ, a rising artist and lyricist, stands out in the current rap game with metaphors, wit, and bars. The Jersey-capital native (Trenton), has lived in underdeveloped communities surrounded by crime, experiencing countless ups and downs throughout his life. As a musician, 22Dubz explores the hardships and horrors of growing up in those areas.
Despite 22dubz’ passion for rapping, he failed to launch a music career because of the lack of clear guidance. After starting over in 2021, DUBZ moved to Atlanta. ‘Book of versus’ was his first album and his official debut. Listeners are able to hear and vibe to the song “Paypal” after the “book of versus” has done extremely well, reaching over 15,000 streams in three countries.
Growing up in an inner city like 22 is rough and challenging. “Paypal” describes this life. People who didn’t grow up in these conditions are able to share in the struggle of living under these conditions through vicariously experiencing a lifestyle that most people cannot escape, while those who have come up under these conditions can recollect their struggles with hope. In addition to 22dubz’s testimony, we hear what he has accomplished since he started. DUBZ’s primary focus is his family, and that makes him an influential writer of the age. Through his music, he intends to put his family in a better position in life, and rapping is a way out for him.
With his style and unique approach to music, 22dubz is projected to continue elevating the rap game. Tune in to 22dubz’s career, and stay tuned
