MTV Canada is Canada's largest music network and they picked up Mekka Don "DIRTY, " added it to their rotation and gave Mekka Don his own ARTIST PAGE! " This was crazy, I can't believe the video has reach and is getting love even in Canada. Thanks to MTV Canada for supporting my music! "
Ok I honestly didn't know TVGuide posted videos, but still for such a main stream media outlet to like Dirty enough to post on their site, is awesome!!!! Shout out to the good people at TV Guide for supporting the "DIRTY" movement.
"When a hip hop legend shouts you out on their morning show, you can't help but feel good about yourself. I grew up on Sway since the Sway and King Tech days, one of the realest people in Hip Hop. Shout out to Sway and Sway in The Morning, for having me do a drop for their morning show. I'm honored. "

Following the competition MTV published an article stating "Mekka Don ruled this Freshman Godfather Style, " and that he went all "Don Corleone on the competition." In response Mekka Don said "I'm glad those weren't my words, I might have had issues with La Cosa Nostra ha. On a serious note, I'm extremely humbled by my fans support and the response the video received. As an artist there's no greater reward than people embracing and liking your music whole heartedly. I couldn't have done this without my fans and I'm extremely thankful to MTVu for giving us the opportunity. "
