The Doppelgangaz: "We Hold Dipset Near and Dear to Us"
After dropping the marvelous HARK last year, the Doppelgangaz have opened their 2014 account with this week's 11-track Peace Kehd project. It's another fine installment in the Dopp Gang canon, headed up by the rugged-to-the-smooth singles "Holla x2" and "KnowntchooTahLie." Tapping into the ghastly duo's Twitter timeline, here's EP and Matter ov Fact talking about Cam'ron's fashion, the virtues of strong ankles, and various types of cheeses.
HAPPY VALENTIMES DAY BB— The Doppelgangaz (@TheDoppelgangaz) February 14, 2014
How did the Doppelgangaz spend Valentine's Day?
EP: I ate extremely well, got myself a six pack of P and called it a night.
Matter ov Fact: I humped the shit out of my bed, let off, rolled over and went to sleep.
Which female rapper would you most like to take on a Valentine's date?
EP: Even though nowadays she's only radio hosting, I'd take Angie Martinez to a nice dinner. I bet she's been everywhere, but I'd pull out the big guns and try to go to Le Bernardin or Marea or [Sushi] Yasuda. After that, I'd just pray that she gives me the honor of lasting one second with her. Angie is so sweet, funny and attractive. I'm sure she'd cheer me up after I reached my tipping point in less than a second; maybe even give me a shot at round two.
Which Doppelgangaz album would make the best Valentine's Day present?
EP: I'd have to say Peace Kehd. Songs like "Come Down Awn Eht" are perfect for sexy time with someone special.
You mention women with strong ankles on the new album. What's the philosophy behind strong ankles?
MoF: A woman who has strong ankles was built to support weight. Either she has meat on her now or she's prepared to gain some later. Also, I like to change roles and have females pick me up, you dig?
Do you have any tips for someone looking to cultivate strong ankles?
MoF: I think it's more genetic, like just luck of the draw, you know? Some females have a strong frame by default.
