Mr Dove – Life Is A Struggle

“Life Is A Struggle” is the first album released by Mr Dove AKA Wild Blue Angel who financed the whole project himself and sets forth his vision on west coast rap. Mr Dove not only raps but he also did production on the album with assistance from LA Copper, Tazalini, Jazz-U, and Risky. In addition to his rapping/production skills Mr Dove designed the album cover as well as headed up a strong advertising campaign which included Tri-Met buses and Jammin 95.5. The album was released in November of 2003 which is amazing considering Mr Dove’s first time in the studio was only a few months prior. With a strong campaign the album hit shelves and sold fast with a 1,000 units almost selling out immediately through outlets like Sam Goody, Tower Records, the internet, and hand to hand sales. Mr Dove recalls the album being far superior than the average independent CD with the hit single “P-Town Playground” also helping fuel the albums success as one of Portland’s early anthems.
