Errol “E-Dubb” We$tbrook was brought up by his grandmother on the West End of Little Rock, AR. Growing up in the city’s gang infested neighborhood on both the South Side of Little Rock on Battery Street and the West Side on 27th, Westbrook, the eldest of five children, fell to the temptations and tribulations of the local streets of Little Rock, becoming involved in gangs, and drug dealing. After being expelled from nearly every high-school in the city and desperate for change, Westbrook used music as an outlet.
Idolizing such ’90s local legends as Durdy Jack Lex Ball, Suited-N-Booted and Major League, Westbrook participated in open mics, talent shows, the Fairgrounds and eventually, bigger venues like the Barton Coliseum.
“There are clubs in Little Rock that people will never get to perform in that I have performed in, like the White Diamond… people probably don’t even know what the White Diamond is or the Palace, it’s burnt down now. I’ve been doing this rap thing for a minute.”
Westbrook’s fierce go-getter attitude and ability to serve as his own street team quickly made him the talk of the town. He was featured on several local artists’ songs and albums. By 2000, Westbrook, then known solely as E-Dubb, and two close friends started a group called “Street Hustlers”, which later evolved as “A-State Hustlers”.
The group released three albums: “Gone Shine” (2002), “Think It’s a Game” (2004) and “Alleyways N’ Ditches” (2006), which featured numerous national artists including Tum Tum and Big Tuck of Dallas, TX.
Their style had a manic, glossy country rap in the No Limit tradition, had a string of local hits like “Robbery” and “Everyday Allday” (both from their 2004 album “Think It’s a Game”).
Westbrook gained momentum as a solo artist in 2008 releasing the self-titled album “Errol Westbrook,” which featured the hit single and video “I Be Gettin’ It” which was both locally filmed and directed. The “Dubbsaks” mixtape was released in 2010 followed by the album “2101”. His hit single, “She’s Bad,” made it to regular rotation on local radio stations.
After the local fame, the “King of Little Rock” started opening shows for national artists such as T.I., the late Pimp-C, Jeezy, and Lil Wayne. He also became the face for anti-bullying campaigns and various radio and film commercials for businesses around the state. Local network A.E. TV (Arkansas Educational Television Network) featured him in the School Bullying talk show to discuss the effects bullying and his personal experiences with it. He also earned a full-page feature in the Listen Up section of the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette newspaper.
Now a part of the N.P.E. (Next Page Entertainment) record label, Westbrook is making major moves. In 2017, Westbrook teamed up with Blac Youngsta from Memphis, TN with the song “Whippin’” which has been a hit throughout the South and featured on the Southern Coalition Movement Volume One Mixtape U Ain’t Da Streets…We Are!!! The song is available wherever music is sold online including iTunes, Spotify, Tidal and more.
