The Beat Yard:  How would you describe your sound as an artist?
Dolo the Bandit:  Highly organic and Hip-Hop in its rawest nature.

The Beat Yard:  Who would you like to work with in the future?
Dolo the Bandit: 
Anyone in love with their craft creating beautiful music. 

The Beat Yard:  Would you prefer to be in the studio with a beatmaker, or would you rather the beatmaker just send you a track and you rhyme to it whenever you have the chance?
Dolo the Bandit:  I prefer to collab with producers in the studio. Collective efforts are always better though schedules and technology has changed that routine. 

The Beat Yard:  Do you buy beats from up and coming producers?
Dolo the Bandit:

I go for what touches me on a fun & creative level.  Beats that challenge my sound & artist ability.  

The Beat Yard:  Have you had any negative experiences you've had with a beatmaker/ producer that you would like to share?
Dolo the Bandit: 
Having a producer re-create a beat they no longer have tracked out. It's very annoying and most the time it's the tracks you really want.

The Beat Yard:  Is there anything else you would like to plug?
Dolo the Bandit: 
Project Monarch on the way! Roach clips Available on iTunes now!
