Video: The Doppelgangaz – “Sun Shine”
AllHipHop Premieres Latest Video From Rapper/Producer Duo’s HARK Album
Critical Praise for The Doppelgangaz:
“The Doppelgangaz are not horrorcore, but they’re making dark music, and… they even have that RZA-esque pained growl popping up a few times. – The Fader
“The Doppelgangaz mix innovative, off kilter production with irreverent, sometimes hilarious rhymes.” – HipHopDX
Today AllHipHop premiered the latest visual for the track “Sun Shine,” from upstate New York rapper/producer duo The Doppelgangaz. Having recently toured through Europe in support of their latest self-produced album HARK, the “The Ghastly Duo” have kept their look more casual in recent videos, demonstrating their lyrical skill and engaging personalities. As in the video for the song “Barbiturates,” this visual places group members Matter ov Fact and EP in relatable surroundings that allow their musical talents to shine through.
In addition to the “Sun Shine” video, the Doppelgangaz also took some time to conduct a video interview with Mass Appeal, where they discussed some of their musical tastes and influences. They are also still conducting their #SkinYarmulke Contest, a reference to one of their previous singles, where fans submit photos of themselves or others with bald spots, which ends June 17. Fans can find more info on the contest, including entry rules, via The Doppelgangaz’ Facebook and Twitter profiles.

The Doppelgangaz, comprised of rapper/producers Matter Ov Fact and EP, are a standard bearer for the New York hip-hop scene. Through the duo’s own label, Groggy Pack Entertainment, The Doppelgangaz have dropped a string of EP releases as well as instrumental projects. Its after these releases that the duo saw their biggest success -The Doppelgangaz have over one million YouTube channel views; they reached number one on HHV’s Top 100 list, Europe’s top vinyl retailer – and they’ve done it all independently. They’re currently wrapping up a European tour supporting their latest album Hark which was released earlier this spring.
