Don’t expect to hear Dustin Wallace (R3DONE) to be rapping about strip clubs, street hustlin’ and smoking a particular leafy herb anytime soon. For him, those topics just aren’t original anymore.
“You won’t find me cussing in my lyrics or degrading women. I’m definitely not into drugs,” stated the talented rapper. “I feel like people get sick of the same old thing heard in just about every rap song. That’s really what’s happening to hip hop. We get it. You have a lot of money, but there’s so much more to life than that. It’s not just money that makes you happy, it is those closest to you.”
The first single off the upcoming project is a track titled “1993(Classics Never Die)” Not only is it the year he was born, he says the title of the single represents a golden-era in hip hop that he genuinely appreciates. He has set the release of that track to be on February 12th of this year.
“When you hear some of the great artists of that decade, they never really die. They’re music lives on,” he stated. “Looking back at that period of hip hop, there were a lot of masterpieces made at that time that I really appreciate. I really wanted to bring back that classic sound. I kind of tell the story of my life in that song.”
R3DONE say it was in middle school that he first fell in love with rap. From there, his love for entertaining others progressed.
“Rap along with music in general has been an escape for me, and I hope I’ve been able to touch people with it along the way,” he said.
