A rapper who shot to fame when he was co-signed by superstar Pitbull, MC Dougie F was born Douglas Ford in Orange, New Jersey. With a sing-song flow and pop-trap style similar to Rae Sremmurd and Migos, he issued his official debut, BlockParty, in 2015. In Your Feelings arrived in 2018.
When he was young, Ford competed with his older brother, who was also an MC, building skills that would help him once he got to college. In 2010, while attending the Virginia Union University, he dropped his debut mixtape, The End Is Never Near. His breakout single, "Back Up on It," featured DJ Fire. A year later he released the mixtape So Far, So Good, featuring the hit club track "One Cup." In 2015 he issued the single "On Purpose," which took off when Pitbull jumped on the remix. His official debut, BlockParty, also arrived that year.
Two years later, he paired with Kyle for the Rami Beatz-produced single "Homegirl." That track appeared on his 2017 effort Yellow Durag. The next year, he issued the singles "Iceberg" and "Pick It Up," as well as his second album, In Your Feelings. ~ David Jeffries
