Dorrough Music, more commonly known as Dorrough, has been making moves in the local music scene since his high school days. Since his initial explosion onto the local scene he has since had chart topping singles, studio albums and a dynamic catalogue of collaborative projects that has been nothing short of spectacular. Recently he release the first of a a series of new projects called Star Baby, which he says is a love letter to his home; Dallas, Texas.

The Star Baby projects is in essence a series of anthems, which Dorrough has made his signature, shining a light on the vibrant hip-hop music scene here in Dallas. While speaking with Dallas Weekly publisher Patrick Washington, Dorrough appears humble and modest about his accomplishments which are not at all small. Dorrough is a history maker and a trailblazer. This hometown talent is the only rapper to date to have exclusive deals with two major sports franchises. TWO. No small feet considering the expansive and commercial appeal of modern rap, and how it is the foundation for marketing for most major brands these days. 

You could say the bar is set high, but according to Dorrough it’s just the middle for him there are higher peaks to climb, and plans to reach the top don’t stop at just two teams and his lofty music achievements. There is more to come, and a deeper commitment to his north Texas roots. The Star Baby himself is creating more collaborations with Texas based artists and using his platform to develop the local music scene into a hub for entertainment. Like Los Angeles, and New York City, and Nashville, Dorrough believe Dallas is primed to become the next center for talent development and promotion, and epicenter for major production and distribution in regards to music. 

He knows, and has first hand experience in the evolution of the Dallas sound and believes there is major opportunity about to explode in the metroplex. And he’s probably right. Dallas has long been a transition point for many musical talents. From Blues to Jazz, from R&B to Hip-Hop, many talented artist and industry business leaders have started or stayed in Dallas as they move to one of the coasts or develop further into he industry. Dorrough asks the question, “why should they have to leave?”

Local talent is abundant here and with the leadership and guidance of established artists and brands like Dorrough Music there is no reason why that talent shouldn’t be here and stay here and develop a business hub right here.
