Named one of XXL’s “10 Canadians to Know in 2016,” Toronto emcee DillanPonders is bringing a new sound to the country’s hip hop landscape.
Shroom Daddy, as fans affectionately call him, has been carving his own lane in the rap scene since 2012 with his innovative — hazy, yet perceptive — drug-induced sound and larger than life persona on and off stage.
Described as a trapped-out spitter with a delivery that sounds equal parts as Kendrick Lamar and Travis Scott, Ponders’s gritty rhymes and trap-flavored sound resonate with listeners who are drawn in by its cutting self-reflexivity. Since his rap genesis, Ponders has released nine projects, including the acclaimed The Boy Who Lived (2014), RETOX (2015) and his debut album, ACID REIGN, in late 2016, which NOW Toronto called his “sharpest and most reflective” effort.
Signed to SmashMouth Music Group, DillanPonders has performed alongside some of contemporary hip hop’s leading artists, including Mac Miller, Travi$ Scott, Joey Bada$$, Ab-Soul and the Flatbush ZOMBIES. He’s performed at SXSW, Manifesto, NXNE, on the Smoker’s Club tours and is an official Red Bull Sound Select artist, and has been featured in some of the genre’s top publications, including Complex, VICE, Noisey, The 405, DJ Booth and more.
