Doughboy Puts a Spin on TLC’s “No Scrubs” With “No Thots”
Channeling Sporty Thievz's "No Pigeons," Doughboy drops "No Thots" with his own explicit spin on TLC's classic "No Scrubs." No longer concerned with members of the opposite sex pulling up in their friend's car, Dough calls out women for only being worried about Instagram likes. The St. Louis native was blessed with a high-octane instrumental from JudgeBeats and does the record justice with an ode to everyone sliding in DMs.
"The record 'No Thots' was one of the first songs I ever recorded in New York," Doughboy told The FADER. "A good friend and producer 'Judge' sent me a whole pack of beats that I hadn't recorded to. So one night the whole team was in the lab drinking and smoking while I was playing beats. When I first played the beat, I wasn't really feeling it. But for some reason Managment (Too Official) was so excited about it. I was like cool, pull it up. I laid my vocals and the homie from Syracuse laid the singing parts for me. After that, the studio went crazy!
"As far as the sound, It's a very big sound. When I say big I mean it's a very universal sound. It can can appeal to the masses. Kids with the the trendy lyrics. Older people with the vibe and style. And it also attracts the R&B crowd with the catchy melody."
Doughboy is set to drop his Sakrifices 2: Youngest King Ever on May 12. Check out the video for the standout "Trap 24," which he dropped back in February.
