Following a huge US tour with AJ Tracey, numerous interviews on some of the hottest radio stations in America and packed out shows in London; Dave has dropped some new heat and fire it truly is.
The visuals do take centre stage on this track, with them being based on an old-stool Nintendo style game with each verse constituting a new ‘level’.
The instrumental is an old-school 8-bit beat which makes the song a little difficult to listen to and doesn’t exactly take Dave’s sound to another ‘level’, but the lyrics more than compensate for the arguably lacklustre beat.
The lyrics do not fail to deliver; they are the saving grace of the song. The wordplay is to a high standard and frequent, although there’s no way you can pick up all references on the first time listening. Some of the finest bars come in the form of: “I find my passion lying in a drink like Rubicon” and “I ain’t gotta sign deals on blind faith, studying Braille’s the last time I touched a dotted line“.
Revenge some fresh off the back of J Hus assisted Samantha and his LA Leakers freestyle.
