The single, witty and captivating, will leave many reciting the hook but also wanting to learn more about this up and coming artist from St. Louis. The new single is one of the many efforts by Doughboy to do his part in helping redefine the music industry and the messages being sent to the youth.

Doughboy is breaking the mold, using his musical platform as a tool to educate and enlighten his community and nation about prevalent issues in St. Louis and surrounding areas.

The contest is simple; students are to write a one-page essay about how violence has affected them or the St. Louis community and what they believe could increase the peace in the city.

“I think that everything happening in St. Louis right now has an effect on young people… So I hope this contest allows them to channel their stress and pain into something positive.”
