Seems Dorrough doesn't think you have enough money--which is to say that you


don't have as much as he has. Or, for that matter, as much as Mark Cuban has.

The Dallas Mavericks owner--who just may soon own Your Texas Rangers, too--makes a quick appearance in an alternate take of the video for the lead single and title track of Dorrough's sophomore release, Get Big. Watch that version--in which it becomes quite clear that Cuban's cameo was an afterthought--right here.

Otherwise, the above, original and "official" video for Dorrough's "Get Big" works just fine. It still features a few cameos--from Tum Tum and some other Dallas hip-hop favorites, plus, uh, the sign above South Side on Lamar.

And, really, it's not a bad song. Our own Jesse Hughey told me he likes it as much as I liked Dorrough's breakthrough, "Ice Cream Paint Job." Meaning? He likes it. A lot.

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.
