DillanPonders celebrates the completion of No Mans Land with this new loosie “Planet Ponders”

Toronto, ON – In celebration of the completion of his album No Mans Land, SMMG artist DillanPonders just released a brand new loosie titled “Planet Ponders” (produced by Dutch Revz).

“Planet Ponders” is so befitting for DillanPonders. This is peak Ponders. He came up as the alien of Toronto rap, and has always been off in his own lane on his own little planet.

He started off as Toronto’s neighbourhood druggy rapper coke king. But over the years he’s narrowed in on his own brand of music that almost always touches on A) his inner circle, B) his girl, and C) how much he dislikes all the other earthling rappers on the scene who are trying to be a certain type of way.

On a technical level, Ponders’ sound has also completely changed over the years. Especially on the mixing, mastering, and engineering side of things. He’s taken the time to work on his engineering skills, and has also developed his own chameleon flow (watch for the flow switch-up at 2:07 on this … much fire).

Here’s what Ponders had to say about this new track and his upcoming project: “My entire album (No Mans Land) is completed. And I was sitting in my studio last week running through some beats and felt like making myself a congratulatory banger! I’m extremely proud of this album and I felt it necessary to give my fans some fire before I release #XannyMan next month. I always feel as if I’m in my own world so the title of the track kinda made itself, ya know? I freestyled this song in a matter of 10 to 15 minutes and knew right when I was done I’d be releasing it this week.”
