Support the independent voice of Dallas and help keep the future of Dallas Observer free.

After the jump, check out the latest interview with Lil Wil, the Dallas rapper who started the whole Dougie dance craze back in 2008, when he released his single, "My Dougie."

Conducted by nationally respected mixtape DJ and turntablist, DJ Smallz, this new interview seems intent on simply adding more gasoline to the fire that already existed on the subject of others taking credit for Lil Wil's work -- something we already knew Wil wasn't too pleased to see take place.

But, considering that, despite his protests, the Dougie went on to have its biggest year yet in 2010, maybe the point is worth reiterating. And, again, you can watch and hear Wil do just that after the jump.

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.
