When he’s rapping, some people say Dolo Fibonacci sounds like the neighborhood OG, but that’s only because he’s been through life’s ringer and he just wants to help others take their next steps.
“Seeing as I’m a bit older, I speak from more of a perspective that’s a little bit different when I’m rapping on beats,” Fibonacci said. “Some would say I talk like an OG, because I’ve been through some shit and I want to give you what I’ve been through. I’m not trying to hide or glamorize a certain aspect of what the streets have to offer or what life in general has to offer. I want you to know there’s a good and a bad but let me give you both. Let me give you both and from that you can take away what you need in regards to what’s going on in your current situation. I want, when people listen to my music for them to be able to heal from something or get motivated to get ready for another step.”
Fibonacci is a Birmingham native, born and bred, and he’s been a fan of good music since he was a child.
He’s seen southern rap grow in prominence and popularity to the point where others are coming to the South to seek validation.
“In the South in general, rap is everything,” Fibonacci said. “It’s kind of, in my opinion, become a Mecca where people get approval for their sound. The fact that so many different artists have been coming in and out of the south and successfully doing so has definitely uplifted the culture and the thought of having faith that it can happen for you as well.”
Fibonacci’s newest album, called “Cujo,” is “an in-depth look at what I’ve experienced with regards to my struggles and tribulations.
“It’s almost like a diary of some things I’ve been through, a reflection of my past,” he said. “Also it’s a look at what my intentions and ambitions are with regard to steadily becoming bigger than my environment. That’s what ‘Cujo’ is about, becoming bigger than my environment, I need to get some more space because I’m bigger than what I started. It’s like if you had a puppy and you built his dog house for his size when he’s a puppy. Eventually he’s going to bust out of it because he’s too big for it.”
Cujo is the seventh project he’s completed since he started looking at music as a career.
Fibonacci said he’s plowing the road for other artists on his Innovative Visions Label to help them become successful.
“I have a group of guys that are behind me that are artists as well,” he said. “And pretty much in hindsight, I’m kind of like the sacrificial lamb for our group. I’m sitting here taking all the bumps, going through all the bumps in the road and learning the way of what is going to work,
creating the blueprint so I can give it to them so they can go ahead and take the elevator where I had to take the stairs.”
Fibonacci said he wants people to know he may be rapping to make a living, but he’s a normal person who goes through the same stuff they go through and is still trying to push through life.
“I go through the same shit everyone else does, I go through the same conflicts in my brain and my thoughts,” Fibonacci said. “I question myself, I doubt myself but I’m just a fighter and I’m resilient, I’m not going quit, I don’t stop. I feel like if you’re a person who’s been losing in life your entire life, at some point you have to look at yourself and hold yourself accountable for those losses because it’s no way that I’m going to continuously get knocked on my ass and not give you a win eventually. Whether it be just from being conditioned from getting back up so much, like pulling a rope-a-dope on life down here. I’m going to make you think you’re whoopin’ my ass until you get tired and then I’m going to whoop your ass. I want them to understand that my music comes from a sincere and true place and I’m not sitting up here trying to sell you on something. I just want you to believe in my conviction and what I’ve been through.”
