RAP AIN’T JUST FOR KIDS & COOL HIPSTERS ANYMORE, THANKS TO THE HILARIOUS AND POINTED RHYMES OF DAWGGONEDAVIS
An Almost “MIDDLE AGE WOMAN” WHOSE “HIP-HOP STYLE” BECAME AN INSTANT GLOBAL SENSATION VIA THE TRACKS ON HER DEBUT EP ‘IN THE DAWG POUND’
Prolific, Multi-Talented Lyricist, Artist and Author Rebecca Davis Recently Released Her Latest Single “Groovin’ At the Louvre” And Will Kick Off 2019 With “You Can’t Call Me”
Taking a unique, hilarious, erudite, self-effacing and no holds barred approach to baring her wild and crazy soul and whimsically sharing her truth, rapper, hip-hop performer and lyricist Rebecca “DawgGoneDavis” sparked an across the board, demographic-busting Global Sensation beginning in early 2018 with her surprise breakthrough smash “Middle Age Woman – Hip Hop Style.” The track, whose autobiographical title (and super infectious hook) says it all about her unabashed embrace of who she is, is just the tip of the proverbial iceberg, folks. It’s just one of four massive hit singles that Rebecca has written to create her offbeat yet “can’t stop listening if you tried” four-track debut EP In the Dawg Pound.
“Middle Age Woman – Hip Hop Style,” which invokes her huge appreciation for Neil Diamond, mentions Elvis, the Black Eyed Peas and includes her rap “I likes to rocks and I likes to rolls/Shaking my booty in my panty hose,” hit #1 on the influential EuroIndieMusic chart and hit the top spot in Europe, Asia (including Russia) and South America. Her follow up track “Butt on Fiya,” which mocks the breast cancer she beat and finds her compensating for her removed breasts with a genetically blessed rear end, also hit the Top 10 on the EuroIndieMusic Chart.

The train’s kept rollin’ from there, with the #11 smash “Forever Music, which expresses Rebecca’s equal passion for the classical music her dad played (Mozart, Haydn, etc.) and classic rock (Elvis, Three-Dog Night, Warren Zevon). Her latest single “Anthem Pandemonium” – currently #4 on the chart – shares her conviction that she will not be a novelty or flash in the pan. “Blast out of the bottle/Going full throttle,” the rapper’s ongoing creativity will ensure that she will keep blowing the minds of open-minded rap, hip-hop and pop fans worldwide, along with the excited college kids across America she’s already got in her pocket. Her latest single is the hilarious and hypnotic “Groovin’ At the Louvre,” and she plans to launch 2019 in a big way with “You Can’t Call Me,” a track about keeping away from vanity and poking fun at herself as she engages in a full throttle embrace of an independent music career.
For the multi-media sensation, the aesthetic of the music and lyrics is an extension of her three popular independently published books, whose witty titles are “Technicolor Hans and Other Events,” “Yo Hans! Sebastian’s Back” and “Intergalactic Hans So Low.” All proceeds from her book sales go to “Operation Breakthrough”’s neediest and most challenged babies and children. The Kansas City, MO based organization’s mission is to provide a safe, loving and educational environment for children in poverty and to empower their families through advocacy, emergency aid and education.
Behind Rebecca’s silliness, wit, poignancy and Type-A personality is her secret musical weapon, French- based collaborator and renowned Euro producer and multi-instrumentalist, Helmut Wolf. Rebecca records her raps acapella at the “Audio Cave” studio in her hometown of Kansas City, then sends the .wav file off to Wolf to work his sonic magic – which includes anything from sensual, jazzy atmospheres and cool sax soloing, booming percussion and deep soul grooving.
“I was born a goofy jokester,” says Rebecca, the youngest of five children who has an MBA and is a successful IT professional (only for the time being). “I would write funny holiday story poems for my family each year. I think the combination of being able to see something in my mind or zombies in the sky comes as a genetic gift. Dad was hilarious and mom is deep and practical. From her I got great empathy and real life intuition. In the late 2000s, when I began publishing my books, people started telling me I should put my fun and sad writings to music – and it’s so gratifying to see how its gone gangbusters. What inspired me to record these songs? Me being nuttier than a Payday bar, the knowledge and confidence that I have ‘it,’ I can do ‘it’ and am doing it with Jesus in the Pound, too.”
Looking forward, Rebecca is bent on entertaining her huge following. This Dawg’s come undone and won’t be out-done.
