Doobie is a rising rapper who prides himself on keeping it real and transparent in his lyrics. The Columbus, Ohio native cultivated a grassroots fanbase with tracks like “Hopeless,” fusing hip-hop styles with guitar melodies.
Doobie (real name Eric Williams) reached a new level of fame with “When The Drugs Don’t Work,” a raw and honest track about the rapper’s drug use.
He created the self-produced song after finishing a tour, and set a goal to write provocative lyrics that fans would remember. The song also references music legend Kurt Cobain, who Doobie admires, and calls out anyone who wears a rock t-shirt without knowing the band’s music.
