Jaap van der Doelen

This one he wrote in cold blood with a toothpick

1982 Was when Jaap van der Doelen shot his way out his mom dukes. A few years later he was already singing along to songs totally inappropriate for his age. A father himself since 2019, he now shares his passion for those same tracks with his daughter Sam. Jaap is married to the lovely Femke and lives in The Netherlands, where he writes about beats, rhymes and life.

You can find his writing in renowned publications such as Mass Appeal, Complex, DJBooth, Passion of the Weiss, SAM (Street And More) and Hiphop in je Smoel. He also reports on culture and sports for Dutch newspapers Algemeen Dagblad, Eindhovens Dagblad and Brabants Dagblad. For three years, he wrote a weekly column in the latter's Saturday edition. Jaap is currently writing a book, which he hopes to soon be able to include in his bio.
