Washington D.C.-bred, California-based rapper/producer Fong-Sai-U presents “Dopeamine”, the self-produced new single featuring Dice Raw, from his forthcoming album Ballads Of A Massacre. “Dopeamine” is the followup to the release of his music video for “Bad Guy” (watch). An underground hip-hop veteran, Fong has collaborated with Black Thought (click to stream “I Own This Microphone”) who was an early mentor to Fong and took him on tour with The Roots. Fong also produced a song for Guru of Gang Starr on his solo album Bald Head Slick under his given name Divine (click to stream “O.G. Talk”).
In 2011 Soulspazm Records released Fong’s album A Soldier’s Story (click for info) which featured Raheem DeVaughn and Res. “I’ve known Dice since he was 15,” says Fong. “We were both shorties doing our thing with Black Thought, so when we got in the lab I told him ‘I want that ‘Clones’ shit’. It was three hours before The Roots’ annual Grammy party so we were feeling right. We got in the booth, killed it, and when we got out we had ‘Dopeamine’.”
