Florida’s street rap scene is having a major moment, and Taleban Dooda is one of the scene’s most exciting voices. Connecting with a fellow Floridian for a new video, Dooda shares “Stay Dangerous.” Mixing pleasant melodies and vicious lyrics, “Stay Dangerous” explores the crackling chemistry between Tampa’s Dooda and Macclenny’s Dee Watkins, as both rappers toe-tag a beat from Dee’s frequent collaborator Gasky with auto-tuned bars. In the video, Dooda and Dee Watkins prove their worth as shooters, playing a few rounds of Call of Duty before mounting up and heading to the paintball range.
“Stay Dangerous” is a highlight track from Fallen Angel, Taleban Dooda’s recently released debut album. Fallen Angel finds the 19-year-old rapper examining his come-up and confronting his demons ,probing all aspects of his psyche. Bursting with invention and earworm hooks, Fallen Angel gives a home to recently released highlights like “Chosen” ft. T9ine, a gospel-influenced anthem that earned praise from Pitchfork and HipHopDX (who named the song one of the Best Hip-Hop Songs of 2021 So Far) and counts 3 million total streams, “Trappin Ain’t Dead,” the Helluva-produced Detroit-style anthem with a standout guest spot from 42 Dugg, and “My Bruddas,” a collaboration with OMB Peezy that received a new music video earlier this month. Featuring an additional appearance from Tory Lanez, Fallen Angel is available to stream everywhere via Green Light Music Group/Rostrum Records.
Taleban Dooda has been steadily building a loyal fanbase over the past year, displaying a natural melodic ability that helps him stand out among street rappers in Florida and beyond. He scored street hits in the first half of 2020 with “Tru Colors” (included as a bonus cut on Fallen Angel with over 3 million total streams) and “2 In Da Morning” (1 million views), and turned heads last fall with standout singles like “Dis Dooda,” which Vice named as one of the 24 Best Songs of September. Dooda recently told his story in a Noisey Next feature with Vice, touching on his experience growing up in Tampa and his musical inspirations.
With Fallen Angel, Dooda takes his latest step towards establishing himself as a major player in the Southern scene. With tens of millions of streams at just 19 years old, this is just the beginning for Taleban Dooda.
