David Dallas is the first major rapper from New Zealand to break in the States, and while he may be from a different hemisphere, the mix of adolescent angst and aspiration that snakes through “Big Time” is universal. Sitting outside the guidance counselor’s office, Dallas narrows down his options (“I.T? Yeah, I like computer games
, but I heard their pay got lower since Y2K?”) before settling on a career as a hip-hop star. It’s probably not the most practical path, but it’s worked for Dallas. He is signed to Duck Down, one of hip-hop’s most venerated labels, and “Big Time” received a shout out from Kanye West. -- Sam Chennault

David Dallas is amazing, he truly is an inspiration. Rappers nowadays are conforming and it seems like they all sound the same. I don't ignore the lyrics and listen to the beat, no- with him I take time to listen to his lyrics and what they're trying to say. I love his style and how he doesn't rap about bullshit. You are sick, and I'm mirin' you brah. You are going to go far in life.
