Island Urban Music introduced rapper Hot Dollar to the world last summer with the release of his debut single, Streetz On Lock. The Scoop Deville-produced song peaked early, fizzled late and was underwhelmingly followed-up with the cell-phone crazed, Sidekick. Now after a few months of A&R discussions and Def Jam brain-trust meetings, the West Coast native drops the Trey Songz collaboration, I Got 2 Get It. Not yet released as an official single, the up-tempo record makes two things clear: Hot Dollar is a much better lyricist than Streetz On Lock indicated and Trey Songz murders guest features. I Got 2 Get It will be featured on Dollar’s debut album, My Dreams… A Day in the Life, set to drop later this year.
