“Tryna label me a hoodlum

Tryna say I got no good blood in my veins

I’m a say I’m a good man

My melanin got you feeling some type of way…”

Dallas Woods released his sophomore single Hoodlum featuring Jerome Farah on Friday 7th December.

 

Old school hip-hop meets new. Hoodlumis hard hitting with strong lyrics, but in his inimitable style Dallas Woods softens the blow with cheeky wordplay and a sweet hook. The hook adds a copacetic element whilst retaining the lyrical intensity giving you a comfortable place to sonically soak in this message.

Stigmas and stereotypes really drove me to write this song. Seeing it unfold in front of my own eyes on multiple occasions was a real motive not to let this subject slide with out bringing awareness to the matter.

As a young Aboriginal man who was raised in both worlds I see how stigmas and stereotypes play a big role in how the everyday person perceives another’s ways and beliefs without knowledge and that in itself breaks innocent people, and in most cases it also stops one from trying to break barriers. Only the brave talk but it should not be that way one voice is powerful but many will bring change. I write with genuine belief the message will be heard.” says Dallas Woods

His cutting lyrics and quick flow brought Dallas immediate attention. When Dallas released debut track “9 times out of 10” earlier this year it was instantly added to triple j and RAGE, he topped the AMRAP charts and earned a pivotal performance slot at Splendour In the Grass. It was at Splendour that he blew the crowd away with his dynamic one-man show that packs a punch of ten men. NEWS FLASH: Dallas Woods is added to Byron Bluesfestline up – catch him Easter 2018 with other gig dates to be announced soon.

“Labels and racism do not go together,” says Dallas Woods

 

Produced by Jerome Farah at Next Level Studios, Brunswick Melbourne.
