"Can I crash on the couch for the weekend / I broke lease and I get no sleep 'cause I'm in too deep," raps the Columbia native Dunson on his new single, "Broke Ass Dope Ass Rapper." You can watch the video above.
The track — which finds Dunson rapping about the struggles to make it in the music industry — was produced by the MC and his frequent collaborators the Phatboiz. It will be featured on his forthcoming release, "Outlier" (due in September).
I featured Dunson, a former Baltimore financial advisor, in my 2012 feature on city rappers on the rise. Since then, he's been featured on a single by R&B singer Chrisette Michele ("Can the Cool Be Loved?") and earned a production credit on Yo Gotti's album ("Respect That You Earn"). Earlier this month, he freestyled over Drake's "Lord Knows" on Philadelphia's Hot 107.9, which you can watch here.
