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 drops a new video for his latest single, “Finish Him.” 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 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). Previously, the 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.
