Tonight's a big one for Dallas' own Dorrough, as, at 7 p.m., the tape-delayed BET Hip-Hop Awards will finally be aired. And though we don't yet know if Dorrough walked away from the event with any statues, we do know this much: He'll perform "Ice Cream Paint Job" on stage and on your TV tonight with Snoop Dogg, Jim Jones, Soulja Boy and Nipsye Hustle in tow.
Oh, and it appears as if Dorrough will be watching the events tonight at 8 Lounge on Greenville Avenue--and you're welcome to join him.
Yesterday, though, Dorrough wasn't anywhere near Dallas. Rather, he was on the set of BET's 106 & Park, where he debuted the above video for the party-starting "Wired to the T," the third single from his debut album, Dorrough Music. Like his previous two videos, this one's also directed by John "Dr. Teeth" Tucker. Unlike the earlier ones, it features a cameo from Mike Epps.
