DillanPonders – Brick (Prod. Fameless) [Audio] #SOTD

Toronto, ON – T-Dot’s favourite druggie rapper – DillanPonders – recently dropped a dope new one-off single on us titled “Brick.” “Brick” is one of those signature faded DP drug ballads you’ve come to fiend for. In case you’re not familiar with the powdery coke-blown winter wonderland that is Dillan’s life – “Brick” refers to a brick of drugs.

The track was produced by Fameless. Fameless isn’t SMMG fam. But this beat is monster. It bodies a darker version of cloud rap (Is there a name for that? Storm cloud rap? Grey cloud rap?). Anyways, this track is dark. It’s borderline incoherent; which is what we love about Dillan. His incoherence is 100% relatable.

I don’t know if this was intentional or not. But when we’re talking about drugs, a “brick” of coke is typically very good quality and not cut with other ish like baking soda, or whatever. I feel like that’s a very telling commentary for DP’s status as a rap cat. He’s not cut with other ish like baking soda, or whatever. He’s genuine. He doesn’t try to fill out his sound with unnecessary fad rap or flex. He’s just a solid pure brick of DillanPonders rap. That’s the stuff that cats crave.

And just so y’all know, DP is currently working on a new EP with SmashMouth producer M Mac titled RETOX. He’s also gearing up to hit us with new visuals from the August released LP, The Boy Who Lived. So basically, it’s Christmas 2.0. So hyped on this right now.
