CooLikeDat Exclusive: Interview w/ The Doppelgangaz!

1. Who are The Doppelgangaz?
Matter ov Fact: The Doppelgangaz are a half black half white duo.. More black than white though because I’m taller than E. You feel me?

2. How did that name come about?
EP: Well, a doppelganger is a ghostly twin and obviously Matter ov Fact and I look exactly the same so we figured, why not.

Matter ov Fact:  We are each others doppelgangers so sometimes I used to just go to his job for him and vice versa and our employers at the time wouldn’t even notice.

3. How did you guys meet?
Matter ov Fact:  Both of our mothers actually took home the wrong baby from the hospital..  By the time our mothers realized they had brought home the wrong child we were both ten so we basically met during a corrective swap.

4. "Digging" has gotten a lot of buzz on the internet, how does this make you feel?
Matter ov Fact:  Its always nice to see people digging your songs, but when the track is called “Digging” it feels even better.  We have plenty more sh*t for people to dig.

EP: Ya dig?

5. What do you guys feel the difference is between your last project and the work your
doing now?
EP: The last project was called 2012: The New Beginning and the new project has a different name. The last project was recorded in 2009 and this one is being recorded in 2010. So there’s a couple differences, I’d say. But on a more serious tip, this new album Lone Sharks is the equivalent of comparing us to a haggard woman of the night’s nether region. We just continue to get more loose... on the mic, that is.

6.What is the biggest misconception about The Doppelgangaz?
Matter ov Fact: Probably that we’re racially tolerant when actually I can’t stand whites and E is scared of black people.

7. What are your thoughts on the underground scene right now?
Matter ov Fact:  Its amateur night man let me tell ya.. Just because something is unknown doesn’t mean its good and vice versa.

8. Name some of your fashions of choice? (Brands, styles, etc)
EP:  We usually go dumpster diving in the wee hours of the night. Might find a cool hat or something.

9. Fun fact about you guys?
Matter ov Fact:  EP gets off to black men fornicating with his wife while he sits in the corner and watches.. I’m that black guy most of the time.

10. What can we expect from the Doppelgangaz in the future?
Matter ov Fact:  More hot sh*t man.. and that “more” is spelled M-O-A-R!!
