Fresh out of Virginia, Stretch Dolla released the first single two his second EP, titled Dolla and a Dream which is scheduled to be released later this year.

Stretch Dolla - "Fresh Out The Trap"

The landscape of hip hop in the Hampton Roads area of Virginia has become much more prevalent in the genre’s impact on today’s radio. Pioneers like Timbaland, Missy, and Pusha T helped pave the way for the talented up and coming artists coming out of the area, some of which have begun to carve their careers and create a lane for themselves. Aspire To Inspire’s own Stretch Dolla is doing the same; releasing material with the mindframe of quality ranks over quantity. ‘Fresh Out The Trap,’ Dolla’s leading single for his second EP “Dolla and a Dream” slated to be released later this year, has him snarling with dark, vivid lyrics over Deafh production filled with an even darker ambiance of drums, snares and kicks. With cosigns from Virginia’s radio personalities as well as New York’s DJs, Dolla is ready to hit the streets with a record that is all-too-familiar for anybody with a hustler’s mentality.

I want listeners to understand the lyrics. And the beat is often structured to encourage folks to groove to the song and still say, ‘damn, this dude got it!’.
