(HEAT EXCLUSIVE) DIP, Drama In Progress (Part 3)

In Part 3 of The Heat’s exclusive with Dip, you’ll hear more about his current and upcoming projects, as well as get to know him a little better:

THE HEAT MAGAZINE: What projects are you currently working on?

DIP: I’m currently finishing up my first mix disc titled, “Who Woulda Knew”. Reason being, many don’t know that I rap. The fact that I’m nice, just blows them away when they first hear me. I always get an enjoyment from letting someone hear me for the first time. For six years almost constantly, I was locked up, so every time I did get a foot in the door of the music business, I was getting two more in jail – but that chapter is closed.

THE HEAT MAGAZINE: Any upcoming appearances?

DIP: I have my first showcase this upcoming Wednesday, “The Writer’s Block” on the 13th of June at the Therapy Wine Lounge located at 3001 Tulane Avenue, New Orleans, Louisiana 70119.

THE HEAT MAGAZINE: How is working with HITZ International and the legendary artists there?

DIP: Working with Meana is like working with a how to manual. With all the knowledge that he so freely bestows on me, I have no choice but to put forward the music that I do. It’s like it’s a formula to all things right, and with this music it’s no different. Meana knows the formula. I’m learning that it’s also a business before anything.  I never knew how much of the business the rapper has to do until Meana started lacing me with the science of it. Then on the other side of it we got J. He is like the opposite of Meana, but yet they’re the same, meaning Meana might run it all day, whereas J don’t say much. But, when he’s saying what he’s saying, it’s more times than not beneficial. Me & Kango just recently started zoning with each other and already we have generated a smash banga, “We On”, so it looks promising for us. I’m still waiting on Jay Jones to find a track for us to link up on. For the most though, it’s just been lovely thus far over here at HITZ.

THE HEAT MAGAZINE: If you could pick 3 people in the entertainment industry to sit down and discuss the current state of affairs with music, who would that be and why?

DIP: Aw, man, if I could sit down with 3 of my choices, definitely my first choice would be Jigga – just because how he’s capitalized so much in a short period of time. I mean dude was rejected by labels that couldn’t foresee, and just kept pushing. He’s like the Mike Jordan of rap. Conglomerate comes to mind when I think of Jay. He has been in the main stream of the music, so his insight and opinion of the game is highly valued by me. Next I would say Tip. We are a lot alike. I would just love to run it with him on some g for g – always kind of saw myself signing with his label truthfully. But my final choice would be Wayne. Hommie just that nigga. Louisiana is forever embedded in history aside from Katrina and slavery, because it was the birth place of Lil Wayne. He been in the game also and faced a lot of adversity and preserved to what you see today. That speaks volumes if you ask me, but that’s if you asking me gml.

THE HEAT MAGAZINE: What can we expect to see from you in the future?

DIP: In the near future, you can expect the release of my freshman project, “Who Woulda Knew”, bangas only from Dip. I’m here for the long ride. The throne is my destination and the world will embrace and love my music. Listen to it and tell me otherwise. Dip$et
