Today, the first signee to Snoop Dogg’s Doggystyle Records releases the video for “Hop Out,” the first single from Long Beach recording artist Jooba Loc and his debut album “Only Way Out.” Enjoy this video stream below after the jump.
Jooba first appeared as part of Snoop Dogg’s LBC Movement, a collective of Long Beach artists representing every corner of the city. Jooba, the 19-year-old lyricist from the North side of Long Beach was quickly recognized as the standout due to his lyrical relentlessness and unique delivery on every track that he touched. Snoop Dogg wasted no time singling out the young MC, immediately getting to work on his debut album.
“Originally we were supposed to just cut one track, but once we were in the studio we just kept going, it was crazy because I’d come into the studio and lay down some bars,” said Jooba Loc. “I’d leave and when I would come back, Snoop had created a whole different song from it. Snoop showed me how to put together a complete song, not just some bars and a hook.”
“There is a lot of raw talent in Long Beach and Los Angeles that I’ve been working with and I’m excited to introduce Jooba Loc to the world,” said Snoop Dogg. “This is just the beginning of the return of Doggystyle Records. U hear me.”
“Only Way Out” is a twelve track album that gives listeners a very personal glimpse of the ups and downs of Long Beach through the eyes of a young MC on the come up. Jooba’s vivid storytelling abilities and hard hitting lyrics over a medley of production from DJ Mustard, Terrace Martin, Cardo and Scoop Deville make for a banger of an album!
