DillanPonders – Johnny Cash [Audio]

Toronto, ON – Last week, DillanPonders (aka: “The Boy Who Lived,” aka: the Canadian rap drug lord, aka: the king of coke, etc, etc) hit us with his latest single release entitled “Johnny Cash” (produced by Mike Murderer). I know y’all are still coming down from the high of Dillan’s latest release, The Boy Who Lived. But this jam will take you right back into the thick of DP’s drug reign.

Dillan comes in over top of some trippy-twangy Mike Murderer production. And he delivers the repetition of one particular line throughout the track: “I’m a walking psychedelic.” And that pretty much sums it all up. Seriously – here’s what it all comes down to: Johnny Cash straight-up walked the line. But DP did the line (of cocaine – probably), and then walked.

Just as the song closes, we hear a quick sample from Johnny Cash’s “Ain’t No Grave (Gonna Hold This Body Down).” Which is so DillanPonders. Think about it. That track is the Johnny Cash-equivalent of “The Boy Who Lived.” They both like to defy death.

This track comes to us off of the SmashMouth Mentality Volume 2 compilation tape, which includes a stacked line-up of all your favourite SMMG cats. Keep it locked on that one. The SMMG fam are throwing serious fire, lately.
