Who remembers “Ice Cream Paint Job” by Dorrough?! The Dallas, Texas rapper blew up off his debut breakout single, which peaked at #27 on the Billboard Hot 100. In addition to the popularity of the record, it lead him to get the key to his hometown of Texas. Now, he stops by Power 106 for an exclusive interview with DJ Felli Fel.
Speaking on his connection to the West Coast, Dorrough brings up how Nipsey was a good friend of his. In fact, he was on the remix to “Ice Cream Paint Job.” He states, “He came out on the BET Awards with me, back when we did that remix. We’ve been having a long extensive relationship. One of the last conversations we had was in Dallas back in March. He wanted to come out here to his new studio and get some work in. We were gonna work on the ‘Texafornia’ record I put out, that we obviously didn’t get to do.”
He adds, “I know what Nipsey is. I know what he stands for, I know what he’d want. Me and Nipsey got content out right now that’s different. Some of it never surfaced, some we’ll probably never even release. How I’ma keep Nipsey lit — knowing what Nipsey stands for, what he do, doing that. Keeping The Marathon going. Keep working in his vision, what he’s doing.”
Dorrough also goes explains bringing Nipsey out at his debut TV appearance, being connected through Snoop Dogg, and his efforts back home in Dallas to keep The Marathon legacy alive. Also, August 4th is officially the first ever Dorrough Day in Texas. Watch above!
