(HEAT EXCLUSIVE) DIP, Drama In Progress (Part 2)

In Part 1 of The Heat’s exclusive with Dip, we learned a little about the label he calls home and the legends by whom he has been mentored. Check out our interview with Dip:

THE HEAT MAGAZINE: Tell us about yourself.

DIP: My name is Leonard Morrison, pronounced “Lanard”. I’m 29yrs old from Uptown New Orleans. I currently reside in Luling la about 20 mons outside of the city.

THE HEAT MAGAZINE: Where did you get your stage name?

DIP: My stage name is derived from my great uncle who many call Rainbow Dip. A potna of mine started calling me Lil Dip. I took and acronymed it into. Drama. In. Progress. (DIP)

THE HEAT MAGAZINE: Do you think your region has an effect on the type of music you do?

DIP: Without question my city has all the influence on my music, simply because I’ve never experienced as much as I have in my city, anywhere else. Then with icons like Mista Meana, Jay Da Menace and Kango Slimm working with me, showing what the formula is to making a hit song, it’s like I can’t lose. I look at Master P and YMCMB as inspiration. Those dudes come from the same place I do. So there is no excuse for me not to succeed unless it’s on my behalf. But again, yes my city influences my music. My city is music. GML. (gotmelaughing)
