Fast-rising local MC Dorrough Music is on a ridiculous tear at the moment. Over a month after first making a major splash on the Billboard charts, his first two singles, "Walk That Walk" and "Ice Cream Paint Job," are still rising steadily. This week, "Walk That Walk" reached No. 30 on the Mainstream R&B/Hip-Hop Chart and "Ice Cream Paint Job" made its first break into the top 20 on the Hot Rap Track chart, coming in at No. 19.

But more than that, the guy really seems to be taking his product seriously. Check out the above video for "Walk That Walk." Say what you want of the content, but the video's graphics and cinematography are pretty top-notch for someone just breaking through. A slight improvement over the original video for, say, the "Stanky Legg", huh? And, after the jump, check the equally impressive video for "Ice Cream Paint Job."

Keep the Dallas Observer Free... Since we started the Dallas Observer, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Dallas, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Dallas with no paywalls.
