Over the past years, Toronto’s Hip-Hop scene has been brewing up dope music – served hot every time.  If you ever get the chance to submerge yourself in Toronto’s creative abyss, you’ll come across artists like DillanPonders, a talented rapper climbing his way to stardom. The 26-year-old started recording and writing music professionally in 2011. In 2014, DillanPonders, received buzz for his sophomore album, The Boy Who Lived.  DillanPonders has also been featured on XXL’s 10 Canadian Artists You Should Know. Keeping the momentum up, today, the rising star premieres his hazy and archaic visual for Samson, the lead single off his recent project, MATRIX.


The Kevin Rolly produced visual sees Ponders at a hazy party with angels, demons and masked creatures, melting away into an almost unrecognizable pile of ooze. Ponders’ mix of insightful and comedic lines creates one exciting package:

“Your girl wants me to sign her tits

Your man wants me to sign his kicks

I don’t know where to draw the line

Maybe when they ask me to sign their kids”

With a talent like this, DillanPonders proves to be a promising act ready to take over the industry.
