Mike Floss' "Dopeboy Dreaming" is the first trunk-rattling taste of the much anticipated mixtape, Don’t Blame The Youth.
With the chant "grew up in the 90s" the song pulls you into the world of the post-Reagan, D.A.R.E. generation where the rewards of playing the dope game outshine the risks.
Floss, formerly known as Openmic, reunited with old friend and producer Ducko McFli of Mike Will’s Ear Drummers, whose
production credits include Drake, ASAP Ferg, YG, Two-9, OG Maco. Ducko’s psychedelic-minimalist-electro-ratchet parlayed with Floss’s infectious chorus and evolved delivery create a new Southern sound that’s both raw and refined. “We locked it down in Atlanta
with the goal of creating our own sound and that was the push I needed to become a better songwriter and tell my story. I started performing dope boy at clubs before it was even finished and knew I had something," Floss says.
Since his last release, For The Rebels 2, Mike Floss has been snatched up by Red Bull Sound Select, performed with Mick
Jenkins, Pusha T, Wale, Stalley, Yo Gotti, Dom Kennedy, Big K.R.I.T., packed hometown clubs, and continues to add believers to the rank-and-file. With strong tracks like "Dopeboy" and a powerful live show, Floss may add a much needed facet to his hometown's
moniker, Music City.
