DOD45 is ArtByTai's web series/podcast of quick 45 minute episodes. While you watch Tai create a pen drawing from start to finish, you will also see & hear discussions with Tai’s special guests.
While Tai draws a DogHawk, they discuss the music that Doseone made for video games like Disc Room & Sludge Life & how he got into that field. They have an honest chat about NFTs & crypto & Dose’s feelings of it be exclusionary. The touch on some new alternative hip hop and the early battle-rapping days battling PEACE & Abstract Rude. Dose also explains how J.Rawls was an early motivator & he tells the story of his first meeting Mr. Dibbs and freestyling for Lyrics Born and Lateef.
They discuss Blockhead's father's artwork and how he was in his 60s when Blockhead was born. They also discuss Blockhead's newest album with Aesop Rock, Garbology, playing basketball with the Beastie Boys, if it's buffalo wings or hot wings, how he signed with Ninja Tune, strip clubs and farmer's markets, Heterochromia and so much more....This is really the shit-talkin', ball-bustin' episode though. They throw some shade on M. Night Shymalan, Ice Cube, Rick Rubin, the Red Hot Chili Peppers, Jim Breuer, Kevin Hart, Martin Lawrence, Joe Rogan, Limp Bizkit and others, but all in good fun. Opinions fly in this episode, but they're just goofy opinions for a laugh, so don't get all bent if they knock someone you love.
