The Break Presents: David Dallas

Breakout: “Start Lookin Round”

Also Check: “Take A Picture”

Name: David Dallas

Reppin’: New Zealand & Samoa

My style and/or skills have been compared to: Various rappers that sound smooth, and random White rappers who sound nothing like me.

I started rapping: Because I’d been listening to hip-hop for as long as I could remember, and my boys told me I wasn’t wack.

My standout records and/or moments have been: Winning national awards back home and recently seeing my songs get added to MTV in the U.S.

I’m gonna change the game by: Showing people that great music can come from a small island at the bottom of the earth.

I’d Like to Work With: Any of the great producers. Dre, The Neptunes, Kanye, Timbo, Organized Noize, Just Blaze… list goes on.

My goal in hip-hop is: Make songs that people would use in a soundtrack for their own life.
