We were fortunate enough to talk ish with Rap Artist…Dolce!!! Dolce is a rapper from the Southside of Chicago, the LowEnd to be exact, who’s on the journey to dominate the rap industry and show the world what he and the AVGMG movement are all about. Let’s get to know Dolce…
3 Voices: Introduce yourself to the world. Let the people know who Dolce is and what Dolce does.
Dolce: Yo! This Dolce AVGMG…Blow! [From the] Southside, lowend of Chicago…rapper!
3 Voices: What inspired you to become a rap artist? Who are some rap artists that have influenced your music career?
Dolce: I came up listening to that real, real, real…REAL hip hop, so Jay Z and Nas, of course. I always wanted to flow like Jay…I always wanted to have some dope subject manners, that whole Roc-A-Fella regime. Dipset Diplomats, they was crazy man and dope deep. They had that crazy swag, so I came up under that swag era and those were the nice goody rappers [who were] out.
3 Voices: Tell us about your movement, AVGMG. What can people expect from the movement?
Dolce: Aviators Gang Music Group, that’s what AVGMG stands for. Basically it started with me and my older brother, Saucegod. He’s one of the guys you gone always see me with. Me and him actually started it together, but it was him who actually inspired the whole movement…got me taking this rap thing serious. He came at me one day, he was just playing around like, ‘yo you nice, lets go to the studio’. So I was like ‘ok’. I booked us a session, we went in…had a good time, we like what we were doing…lets give it a shot, that’s where it all came from.
For the most part, we come from Humble Beginnings, like I said, we from the Southside, lowend 38th and State, 27th and Dearborn… you know really, we just talk about our environment. We try not to talk about it in the same sense everybody else, no formal way do we glorify killing or dope dealing, none of that, but we talk about ourselves and the things we saw or the things that subjected us into other influences. But you all can expect some dope lyrics, some dope musical content, dope ass swag…we all about this fashion thing, we all about that fly life. You can expect quality music from us now and definitely in the future.
3 Voices: What makes Dolce stand out from other rap artist from Chicago? What are some things you rap about?
Dolce: Well first and foremost, shouts out to anybody doing the drill music, shouts out to anybody who is a driller, a hitter or whatever path they decided to take, that’s on them. No formal way am I throwing shade on anybody for their style or artistic expression…whatever it is they tryna do. I respect it and since it came from the city so I love it, it’s just I came up in a different era, I came up under a different time. Speaking back on my influences, I always wanted to rap like Hov, I always moved by such music about struggle…I think what the people gone really like from me is my ability to be dynamic, I’m a dynamic dude [who’s] versatile. I got my principles now, Ima stick to my guns and everybody stick to their guns. I don’t wanna switch up because something is popular then I’m not be authentic to my music. I got my own sway, I got my own style and I wanna deliver to the people and I can’t deliver in no other formal way. That wouldn’t be giving up an authentic Dolce that will be giving you another trend to follow and I not just no gimmick out here.
3 Voices: Tell us about your latest single, Alotta Noise. How did the single and about?
Dolce: For one, I’m a very humble cat. I’m very humble and very grateful for everything that’s going on. Haha, but I don’t like to think of myself as I’m popping off or I’m that nigga…I like to stay grounded. We were sitting around talking in the studio one day, I think it was Saucegod or Stunna, that’s the other cat you gone always see me with…family, said something like, ‘man, yo name came up in a conversation, so and so was like they watching, they seeing what you do…they ain’t gone say nothing but they watching, so yeah I guess you making alotta noise’. I’m like ‘ok’! I had just got this dope new beat from my producer/friend, his name is Hitman Traxx, he from ATL…crazy! He got it going out there. He sent me the perfect track and it just came together.
3 Voices: Will there be a visual for Alotta Noise?
Dolce: Of course! Definitely! There will definitely be a video for it. One thing that I believe in is timing. I don’t like to sacrifice my art in certain timeframes…it’s all about timing for Alotta Noise. I got some ideas for it, I gotta work with the right cat that’s gone break it out for me, if not, I’m not gone really feel it like its meant to be felt. I definitely plan on shooting a video for that this summer…definitely!
3 Voices: What’s next for Dolce? Are there any exclusives that you can share with us?
Dolce: I just dropped a video for a song I got called, One Time. So right now, I’m pushing it as a single for myself because it’s such a personal song for me. I lost my little brother a few months ago to the streets of Chicago. I made that track and dedicated it to him because at the end of the day, he inspired it. That’s really the track I’m pushing right now. I’m tryna work all the avenues I can, I definitely wanna get that out, I feel that it’s worth it. I feel like the people need to hear it, the people wanna hear it…especially with some many others in Chicago who can relate with what I just went through.
It’s all about building this buzz and building this brand. That’s one of the reasons why we decided to rebrand the Aviators Gang to AVGMG, we wanted to give you universal. As far as what I got going on, I’m keep grinding, I got my hand in the dirt. I’m not really with nobody right now, I’m not worried about putting out no next mixtape…I’m just focused on making this quality music and getting it out to as many people as I can. But you can definitely expect to see that One Time on Worldstar real soon, I’ll let you know that.
3 Voices: How can the people reach out to Dolce on social media sites such as Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, and etc.?
Dolce: My Twitter and my Instagram is the same thing, @_nodolce just add me. I’m a very approachable dude. I always wanna hear feedback, I always wanna meet anybody who is supporting me and liking what I’m doing. Drop me a comment, drop me a DM…we can link up or whatever the people wanna do. I’m there for the people, I’m out here. I’m reachable and approachable.
