By: Shamus Hill

Utilizing some transcendent production at the hands of Jonny Doobs, “Big Dope” is one of Seuss’ most well-tooled releases to date.

Seuss and Jonny Doobs are two names that Graduation Music readers will easily recognize, as they’ve graced our pages a countless amount of times over the course of the last few years. Both individuals have been working diligently towards building up their musical resumes, so it was only fitting that they finally linked up to work on a track.

While this release may be the first collaboration between the two, it doesn’t appear as if it’s going to be the last — as the synchronization between the both of them appears very solid. Seuss cuts into this beat with true precision, ultimately making this song a standout within his deep discography.

Massachusetts is on a mission in 2019, and people like Seuss and Jonny Doobs are going to help us get to our end goal.
