In the current bustling world of music, it is becoming increasingly rare to encounter an artist who effortlessly embodies authenticity and versatility in equal measures. Today, I am pleased to introduce you to a gem in the rough, a remarkable talent, NLF Dallas. Born on October 14, 2003, this young and spirited artist hails from Perry, Florida but has currently established his base in Orlando.
Entering the music scene as an 8th grader, Dallas has been industriously honing his craft and refining his unique sound in the realm of Hip Hop. Inspired by heavyweights such as Lil Wayne, Kendrick Lamar, Andre 3000, X & Juice to name a few, his music exudes a profound sense of understanding, a blend of the familiar and the innovative. The embodiment of his musical vision is the creation of music that resonates with those ‘going through it’, a testament to his relatable, human-centered approach to songwriting.
Dallas’s strength lies in his versatility, a trait that sets him apart in an industry often criticized for monotony. He curates music from different perspectives, leveraging the unique texture and rhythm of each beat to guide his lyrical journey. His nimble navigation through various moods and tones is an ode to his ability to “vibe” with music, a quality that lends a distinct character to his compositions.
Despite being relatively new to the music industry, Dallas has started to carve a name for himself, amassing almost 10,000 streams on Apple Music and reaching 1k views on his YouTube video. He envisions a future for himself steeped in legendary status, touring globally, and clinching top chart positions. His advice to budding musicians is a testament to his journey: to invest in oneself, cultivate a supportive team, and value the essence of consistency.
Among his repertoire, Dallas holds a special affinity for his tracks ‘Can’t Help It’, ‘October 14th’, and ‘London Tipton 2’. His dream collaboration roster includes Lucki, Drake , Andre 3000, Pharrell, and Kanye West, further underlining his diverse musical taste and ambition.
The journey of a song from conception to execution varies for Dallas. Each track necessitates a unique mood, an intriguing testament to his ability to morph and adapt his creative process. He eagerly anticipates his upcoming five-song EP, promising a showcase of versatility.
NLF Dallas’s latest release, ‘October 14th (Sticky)’, stands as a testament to his lyrical prowess and ingenuity. The track is a self-styled ‘remix god’ rendition of Drake’s ‘Sticky’, born from his admiration for Lil Wayne’s remixes and his urge to outdo Drake’s performance on the original track. Dallas recounts the recording session as one of his best, brimming with anticipation and excitement, underscored by the fact that it was recorded on his birthday.
‘October 14th (Sticky)’ is replete with standout bars that encapsulate Dallas’s deft lyrical ability and offers a 4-minute glimpse into his introspective mind. The track, produced by ProjectVillage in Tallahassee , was released on December 8, 2022, and is quickly gaining momentum in the music community.
This rising star’s journey has just begun, and there is no doubt that we can expect more captivating tunes and soul-stirring lyrics from NLF Dallas in the future. I recommend checking out his tracks on Apple Music, Spotify, and SoundCloud, and staying updated with his journey on Instagram, YouTube, and Twitter. Dallas promises more videos soon and a sneak peek into his new EP on his social media channels. Brace yourselves for the thrilling musical ride NLF Dallas is set to take us on.
