David Dallas - Runnin

Posted about 3 years ago
Producer:
Fire & Ice
Album:

Like winning a marathon (or even finishing one), succeeding in the rap game requires incredible drive, stamina and self-discipline. New Zealand hip-hop heavyweight David Dallas is richly endowed with all three of these qualities and, if album lead single Runnin’ is any indication, he’s not settling for anything less than first place. On this fiery cut, recently featured in the official trailer for Madden NFL 25, Dallas emphases his determination to “get it while [he’s] livin’,” and warns rivals of what awaits should they impede his hustle. Fire & Ice take a unique approach behind the boards, basing their tension-fraught beat around a dusty blues sample. Fans will be able to find Runnin’, Freddie Gibbs-assisted buzz single My Mentality and much more on David Dallas’s Falling Into Place LP, scheduled to hit record stores and online retailers Tuesday, October 22.
