Minneapolis collective, Doomtree, has carved out its own lane in independent Hip Hop and secured a massive fanbase. One of Doomtree’s MCs, Sims, is steadily building a solo career of his own. His latest track, “OneHundred,” is an infectious, high-energy anthem bursting at the seams with his dexterous rhymes.
“This is a light-hearted song about feeling pinned down by people trying to tell you how to be,” Sims tells DX. “A quick dip into the paranoia of being surveilled by the NSA, Twitter, and then a declarative ‘fuck it.’ It’s about being happy to be yourself and not worrying about what anyone has to say about it. But mostly I just wanted to rap my ass off.”
As the first single from his upcoming solo album, More Than Ever, “OneHundred” is Sims at his finest. The album drops November 11 and a fall tour kicks off November 3 in Milwaukee, Wisconsin.
