DillanPonders just doesn’t seem to stop. Immediately after dropping his MATRIX album in May, Ponders hit the road with Pouya on his ‘FIVE FIVE’ tour in-support. Back in Toronto, he headlined the fifth annual ‘Speak Your Peace’ festival and performed alongside Toronto’s elite emerging talent at 199Z Fest, which also featured the likes of Sean Leon, Langston Francis, Lemin and more. Today, Ponders lets loose a brand new single:”ROCKET MAN”.
With a dizzying flow, Ponders protrudes confidence and gusto, executing slick wordplay on lines like “I know that you know I got the game inside my pocket / I been blasting off just call me Dillan Pon De Rocket” with precision.
The brooding, dusty and 808-ridden Kevin Rolly—who has also produced for the likes of Yung Tory and Lil Durk—produced single serves as a stand-alone transition between MATRIX and Ponders’ forthcoming album, The Boy Who Died, a sequel to his 2014 album The Boy Who Lived.
