Rose Tinted

I trust youse fullas have already “hit the save as menu button, yeah the right one” for young D dot’s The Rose Tint, chucked it on your i-pods, played it in your car, etc.  If not, why not, silly?

I don’t have much else to say on the matter except, you know, best album ever. But I thought I’d compile a list of some of the sites that are repping The Rose Tint for your reading pleasure.

HipHopExtra did a nice write up, “He may be from the lovely scenic island New Zealand, but David Dallas lyrics are far from scenic. His rhymes have the ability to captivate the urban city dweller and leave you wondering what his next verse will be.”

pigeonsandplanes are also fans: He’s just got that something else, he’s smooth no matter how he does it.”

rhymeandreason have done a good in-depth interview “the theme of the album is me trying to look at things in a positive light. I’ve always had a tendency to be pessimistic and down-play things when I should be celebrating. I could win an award and everyone will be like ‘You should be stoked’, but I’ll already be focused on the next thing.”

My fave site The Smoking Section are still showing love, as is Okayplayer and other big guns like 2DopeBoyz and The Source.

DJ Booth and Aye Bro are completely Rose Tinted Out and local news NZ Herald and Stuff get their heads around the concept of a free album.

cool ay?
