David Dallas – My Mentality (ft. Freddie Gibbs)
David Dallas is relatively unknown in America, but he has certainly been making waves overseas and steadily growing his fan base worldwide. From what I’ve discovered, if you’re a hip-hop fan living in his home country of New Zealand, you’ve undoubtedly heard of him by now. My Mentality is the lead single off of his new album Falling Into Place, which just dropped today. The serene instrumental produced by Fire & Ice provides an entrancing ambient backdrop that beautifully compliments both artists’ sublime flows. This is Dallas’s second collab with Freddie Gibbs, with Caught In A Daze being his first. I hope this isn’t the last though because their styles are undeniably compatible and work exceedingly well together.
I’ll also be posting a Q & A interview I had with David Dallas later this week, so make sure to keep an eye out for that.
