A bullet an inch from his spine didnt stop him.
A knife in the lung couldn’t stop him and neither could consecutive prison terms.
Australian MC Pug D (Formerly Dougy Doug) is a fighter and he’s here to leave his mark on the urban landscape.
After years as a certified hip hop fan Pug’s career as an MC began while he was serving time in the NSW prison system in 2004/05.
As fate would have it he met fellow MC and KP Records founder Big Dave Parsons and the two became friends over a few freestyles at Goulburn and Long Bay jails.
Impressed by Pug’s unique voice Big Dave went on to sign him to KP Records in April 2008.
Like the mans life Pug’s music career has been made up of ups and downs and since signing on at KP it has been live shows and recording sessions between stints in prison.

Highlights during Pug D’s music career have included picking up the “Lyle Munro Urban Legend” award from behind bars, collaborating on a single with Kurupt of Tha Dogg Pound, a double page feature in Vibe magazine and dropping his debut EP Koori Soul.
As an artist Doug brings to KP a brand of street soul that sets him apart from the rest of Australia’s hip hop talent.
Lyrically Doug’s music represents the person he is.
An ex crim trying to turn his life around and a Koori man that holds a strong cultural identity.
He’s an MC that’s lived hard.
He’s an MC that rhymes hard.
Raise a fist for Pug D!
