* XMeetsY: Some Juggalos have compared Big Hoodoo's appearance to that of Music/AnybodyKilla, who also uses red facepaint, in contrast to most of Psychopathic's roster, who use black and white MonsterClown facepaint, and Big Hoodoo's lyrics to that of Music/{{Boondox}}, because both reference voodoo/hoodoo in their lyrics (though Music/InsaneClownPosse also refer to voodoo in their lyrics).


Big Hoodoo is a rapper from UsefulNotes/{{Detroit}} signed to Creator/PsychopathicRecords. Also known as Doe Dubbla and The Jinx, whose stage persona contains copious amounts of HollywoodVoodoo and West African BlackMagic. His appearance is heavily inspired by Baron Samedi, one of the Loa of Haitian Voodoo. However, due to the crossover between Music/InsaneClownPosse's fanbase and ProfessionalWrestling fans, many Juggalos have compared Big Hoodoo to Papa Shango, whose appearance was also inspired by Baron Samedi's.

Big Hoodoo is a rapper from UsefulNotes/{{Detroit}} signed to Creator/PsychopathicRecords. Also known as Doe Dubbla and The Jinx, whose stage persona contains copious amounts of HollywoodVoodoo and West African BlackMagic. His appearance is heavily inspired by Baron Samedi, one of the Loa of Haitian Voodoo. However, due to the crossover between Music/InsaneClownPosse's fanbase and ProfessionalWrestling fans, many Juggalos have compared Big Hoodoo to Papa Shango, whose appearance was also inspired by Baron Samedi's.

Big Hoodoo's lyrical style can be broadly described as {{Horrorcore}}, with elements of Type 3 GangstaRap, with Hoodoo using horror fantasy as a metaphor for the WretchedHive of inner city street life, and as a form of escapism.

After releasing a local album as Doe Dubbla, he was introduced to Juggalos via Psychopathic's anti-FBI freestyle in 2012, but was not officially signed to Psychopathic until June 2013 due to apparent difficulties in attaining copyrights trademarking his stage names. He was officially announced to have signed to Psychopathic with the music video for "Hexed", off his Psychopathic debut album ''Crystal Skull''.

!!Big Hoodoo and his music provides examples of:

* BlackMagic: The Jinx' preferred form of supernatural ability is HollywoodVoodoo hexes and spells.
* DrugsAreBad: "Never Had" talks about Big Hoodoo's mom being addicted to drugs. "Blitzed" and "Crystal Skull" talk about violent murder committed while on drugs/alcohol.
* HollywoodVoodoo: Invoked and subverted. Big Hoodoo has facepaint and costumes that make him look like Baron Samedi, but his abilities are often used for BlackMagic, tying in with {{Horrorcore}} lyrical themes, but Hoodoo also refers to using his magic for healing purposes in the song "Give It Life".
* {{Horrorcore}}: Mixes this with touches of Type 3 GangstaRap, like other Psychopathic artists.
* WretchedHive: UsefulNotes/{{Detroit}} is described as this in the song "Detroit Murderous".
* XMeetsY: Some Juggalos have compared Big Hoodoo's appearance to that of Music/AnybodyKilla, who also uses red facepaint, in contrast to most of Psychopathic's roster, who use black and white MonsterClown facepaint, and Big Hoodoo's lyrics to that of Music/{{Boondox}}, because both reference voodoo/hoodoo in their lyrics (though Music/InsaneClownPosse also refer to voodoo in their lyrics).
