I’ve always been fond of Dallas. Home of the Dallas Cowboys, Grapevine Mills mall and some pretty underrated restaurants, there was always just something dope about Dallas. So when I got a new record with David Dallas in the title, of course I was stoked by the positive association alone. Not being too familiar with the New Zealand emcee (no, he’s not from Texas), I delved into his new street single, Ain’t Coming Down, with a clear mind and absolutely no preconceived notions at all. After I started with that clean slate, David Dallas took it and tagged up my whole mental canvas of him with sonic graffiti. Produced by Fire & Ice, Ain’t Coming Down has that uplifting sound with charming horns and uplifting strings over which Dallas and Duck Down head honcho Buckshot handle business, complete with a briefcase and Windsor knot. Discussing topics that every rapper discusses at one time or another; being the best he can be and being steps ahead of the competition. Ain’t Coming Down will appear on The Rose Tint, Dallas’s upcoming (free) project due out May 11.
