Dorrough Takes "Ice Cream Paint Job" To New Heights
Dorrough may just have one of the best club songs of the year and definitely best trunk rattlers with his breakout single “Ice Cream Paint Job.” With everyone feeling the vibe of the track from Snoop and E-40 to Jim Jones and Soulja Boy hopping on the remix, Dorrough just took the single gold. The “Ice Cream Paint Job” digital single has now surpassed sales in excess of 500,000 units scanned. The Ringtone also remains a steady presence on Ringscan’s Top 10 chart.
But the success doesn’t end their as the Dallas MC has been nominated for “Rookie of the Year,” “Best Hip Hop Video” and “Viewers’ Choice Award” for the video of his hit single “Ice Cream Paint Job.” Speaking of his success, Dorrough spoke of his critics who were labeling him a one-hit wonder. He told Hip-Hop Wired exclusively,
“First of all, they would have to start off by labeling me a two-hit wonder. On the radio I got two songs, two songs on Billboard, two videos on the top ten countdown on 106 & Park. So they can’t even start by labeling me a one-hit wonder. Only thing I can say is man…I wanna be labeled as one of the greatest artists to ever do this because that’s how I see myself as an artist.”
Dorrough recently shot a video for “Wired To The T” which will be third single off his debut album. The video reunites Dorrough with Director Dr. Teeth and will also feature Mike Epps who coincidently will be hosting BET’s Hip-Hop Awards. Speaking of his debut Dorrough Music, he added,
“Expect this to probably be one of the best albums of this year. I put a lot of hard work in this album. It’s got a different feel to it. We’re anticipating four to five singles from the album, not including “Ice Cream Paint Job” and “Walk That Walk.” In saying that, I feel like it’s going to be a real big album. I feel like it’s a classic and anytime you make a classic album, you can’t be beat.”
