We had the good fortune of connecting with Dorian Morgan and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Dorian, what role has risk played in your life or career?
Risk Taking so this plays a big part on how I moved from Kennesaw ,GA to Los Angeles ,CA. so I was on probation over some weed in CLAYTON COUNTY idk why I was even over there. Basically everything wasnt working out car situation probation being an hr away and both parents kicked me out. the day/night my Dad kicked me out I called my uber to work that morning 5am he lives in alpharetta ga and I Worked at the Atlanta Cheese cake company in Kennesaw,GA. when i left his house All I had was my one bag he gave me to put my stuff in in my I was like damn i might have to sleep on the street tonight but i knew 1 person this girl Vanna Bandz that fucks with fauni and 3400 so I asked her to ask her mom could I stay for 1 week before I left for LA because I was over everything she said yes thankfully and my last work check all together I had $780 I spent $200 on a 1 way to LA and I had $580 left to my name. I left I was on the run for a year then I had a warrent I was homeless in LA for like 2 years then I got right where I could travel and do whatever shit just got lit ! so I went to orlando did some community service and paid out $500 then my po asked the judge to uplift my warrent so after that I went back to LA and the whole time I was on the run im still working on my clothing brand KIDS and my media company WeekendDrift staying focused everything is a mind set I didnt care I was on the run Im going to have a documentary about all this and I hope it motivates another kid to do the same in a better way I love my life and this is just the start I haven’t even got my feet wet WeekendDrift is going to be in the same atmosphere as Rolling Loud.
