Album Watch

Dillon-Francis-Money-Sucks-Friends-RuleAlbum Title:  Dillon Francis- Money sucks, Friends rule

Genre: EDM

This album mixes rap, trap, and house into one album. It has great vocals and melodies. This is perfect for listeners who just want to relax, or others who want to party and “bump” to it. Francis’ creativity, ability to bring multiple genres together, and use of music appeasing different tastes make this album great. You will hear some of the Dillon Francis’ older style of trap, and dubstep, but you will also hear his new sound of a more progressive house.


Song Watch

Song Name: Dillon Francis All that (Feat. Twista and the Rejectz)

Genre: EDM

This song is from Dillon Francis’s new album. This song incorporates the great lyrical creativity of Twista with original trap beats. This song does not really have a “drop”, but it does have a great chorus, and two very exceptional verses from Twista with his usual style of fast rapping. This track is great for Jamming to in your car and for parties.
