Dillan Ponders is wasting no time going “Back to the Trap” as he alludes in his newest song. Ponders received considerable attention last year from his album Retox which solidified his more or less trippy style of music.
Since then, the self proclaimed ‘6GAWD’ has been releasing songs mid-week like “Back to the Trap” on what he calls Shroom Daddy Wednesdays.
In just three years the Toronto rapper has managed to complete seven projects – a collection of Albums, Mixtapes, EP’s and LP’s. In the same amount of time he has built a brand largely focused around drugs (particularly shrooms) somewhat like Snoop Dogg who has become practically synonymous with weed.
Yet, while he doesn’t sound like Snoop Dogg his hair is just as peculiar… if not more. He’s gone from blonde, to green, to ombre green, to multi-coloured dreads but hasn’t been able to compare to his incredibly vibrant shows!
Whether he’s opening for big names like Flatbush Zombies, Mac Miller or headlining his own show, the rapper is worth watching. With that being said watch out for him in 2016 because he’s sure to have more material, adding to his already sizable portfolio.
