I CAUGHT UP WITH DORRIS LAST WEEK AFTER HIS CLASH WITH HAZMAN ON LOTM6, HERE’S WHAT HE HAD TO SAY.
WHEN DID YOU FIND OUT YOU WERE GOING TO BE ON LOTM ?
I found out 13 days before the clash. Proper out the blue.
DID THE CLASH BEING LIVE ADD TO YOUR NERVES?
I’m used to clashing on Words Are Weapons, so clashing live on mic was something new to me. Proper 8 mile vibes. And to be honest I didn’t get much chance to think or get nerves. One minute I was having a cig outside the next I’m on stage about to clash. Then another minute later I’m outside smoking a victory spliff. All happend really fast haha.
YOUR OBVIOUSLY USED TO BATTLING ON WAW, DO YOU THINK IT PREPARED YOU FOR ALL THE MADNESS ON SUNDAY?
I’ve clashed on waw previously a few times but this lotm event was different because I did not no what to expect in terms of venue, settings and crowd it was exciting!
IN YOUR OPINION WAS THE CLASH EVENLY MATCHED?
From what i can remember I ate him alive for 2 rounds then he took the third. I’d to watch it back tho I can’t really remember. But yeah it was a good energetic fun clash.
DO YOU NORMALLY SWAP BETWEEN GRIME AND RAP?
I only really put out grime.
WHERE CAN WE HEAR YOUR MUSIC ?
Type Dorris in on YouTube…….I’m doing abit 😉 haha
I HEARD MANY PEOPLE SAY, YOUR CLASH WAS THE MOST ENTERTAINING OF THE DAY, HOW DOES THAT MAKE YOU FEEL?
I semi knew our clash would be full of jokes and witty banter. You had opium v dialect full of flows and content. P money n big h the serious super lyrical clash (well was supposed to haha) and then me n hazman the hungry less know guya just ripping each others faces of. Good balance and well matched clashes tbf.
HOW DID YOU PICK YOUR TUNES FOR THE CLASH?
We just chose on stage at the clash. I’m a proper fussy guy when it comes to beats but I didn’t wanna delay the day so we just cracked on with pretty much the first 3 beats Logan played for us.
WILL YOU BE APPEARING ON DONT FLOP ?
Never been on don’t flop, eurgh has asked me but I don’t think I’ll be making an appearance any time soon tbh.
WHO INSPIRES YOU MUSICALLY?
Nobody proper inspires me musically, it’s more day to day situations and life. But if ever I’m slacking I always think I bet Wiley and ghetto are making tunes right now and I’m just sat here smoking and drinking haha #fixup
HOW LONG HAVE YOU BEEN BATTLING?
Had my first proper clash at the beginning of 2013 but obviously been clashing/sending since I first started 8 years ago. My first tune was actually me sending for a bunch of random people who didn’t even mc haha (wtf was i doing ?) So it’s kind if been there from day, always been a murkers!
WOULD YOU HAVE PAID TO ATTEND LOTM YOUR SELF ?
Obviously coming from manchester is a bit peak. But if I lived in or around London I would have 100percent paid 100pound to see that. #grime #history #youhadtobethere !
