On the brink of worldwide success, Island/Def Jam artists Hot Dollar is delivering two singles at a time. Lead song 'Streetz on Lock' that has been hot on radios is made the remix featuring Rick Ross and Gucci Mane while a brand new song 'SideKick' is dedicated "to the ladies".
Both singles are to appear on the rapper's debut studio album 'My DreamÖA Day in the Life'. In an interview Dollar explained how significant this record is to him. "Basically, everybodyís got a dream about what they really want to do and what they really want to have. (In this album,) youíre watching me get it. A day in the life of it. Itís like youíre watching my movie, being corresponded. This is my dream Ė Iím living it. I was living like a rapper before I was rapping, just doing what I wanna do, having nice-looking females, (and) driving nice cars."
Mid numerous emerging hip-hop artists that give heavy competition, Dollar has defined himself rather different in terms of record. "I know Iíve got the album of the year, song-wise. You can name a lot of good rappers - theyíve got a lot of good lyrics, (and) thatís cool, but they donít have hot songs. Thatís the difference. Thatís what separates me (from the rest.)"
As how far he would reach fans through his record, the West Coast rapper is confident that his CD will bring "good time". He said, "A piece of them - to be able to carry that in their mind, where it will always alter how you remember those songs in that time. You know how you just hear something and you catch everything in its time because that song makes you feel good? So every time you jump in your car, you play that song and you keep that moment in time a treasured moment when you hear that song again."
