Red Bull Music today shares the third episode of studio rap series ‘64 Bars’, featuring Wyndham-raised rapper and mentor, Dallas Woods. The series showcases 64 bars of astute raps – no bells, no whistles, no hooks from trailblazing artists.
At a young age Dallas Woods developed the uncanny ability to find humour in the most unlikely places. Relentless exposure to some of life’s toughest moments has provided him with the mettle to cut-through society’s demons so he can apply words to his tsunami of feelings and thoughts. Dallas writes with a wealth of humility, knowledge and experience; it’s his coping mechanism.
A Noongar man raised in the E.K. [East Kimberley] Dallas was a quintessential underdog – dropping out of school at age 14 and headed straight for the justice system, to becoming East Kimberley Young Achiever Award at the age of 15.
Dallas Woods says of his ‘64 Bars’:
“I was given the chance to record 64 Bars based on the topic of home, and I really took the time to paint a picture about the lifestyle I was accustomed to as a young indigenous boy growing in two worlds, and how it influenced my music”.
