$tereo Type$ Seals Doeman's Future-Star Status

With so much news to that flies by in the Houston rap scene, luckily we're here to sit back and deal with it all. Welcome to our own version of March Madness, where every workday we're delivering stories to keep you occupied with the ins and outs of the Houston rap landscape.

"I hear Doeman's pretty dope, but does he rap about anything?"

Joseph "Doeman" Gonzales has been called a burgeoning star before. His life has two key points: before a car accident nearly took his life and the one after. His 2012 debut tape, The Understatement, showed early range for utilizing his good looks to pick up chicks and run the floor like James Harden to grab attention flow-wise.

Seriously, watch an early video from the tape Imperfectly Perfect. It's like watching a young rapper still deal with being on a VHS and not even DVD. Let's just say three years carving out not only a sound but sharpening his pen for further success.
