Area hip-hop product Dorrough--and subject of my column in this week's print product--is gonna be tough to avoid in the coming weeks as he prepares for his debut album's August 4 release (moved back a week from last we heard).
But, beyond that, Dorrough's beginning to push yet a third single from the still-unreleased Dorrough Music, the Slim Thug-supported "Piece & Chain Swangin." To help promote the track, Dorrough offered his Twitter followers a free download of the song over the weekend. It's worth a download for the curious listeners, yeah, but it's hardly a keeper--the version's littered with promo drops, which is pretty annoying, if somewhat understandable.
Perhaps to make up for the annoyance, though, Dorrough also offered up another track--this one without promo drops cutting into the music--for download via his Twitter stream this weekend: The song, "Ms. Parker," is actually an unreleased cut that doesn't make an appearance on Dorrough Music--which is a shame, since it's slow-paced beat and flow might be a welcome change on the otherwise club-heavy disc.
