Audio: Dusty Locane – “Rumble”
The Canarsie Rapper Continues His Meteoric Rise With a Drill Banger, After His Previous Three Singles Reached the Top Ten of Rolling Stone’s Trending 25 Chart
“A rumbling voice that could be picked up on a seismograph” – Pitchfork
With tens of millions of streams in the bank, basso-voiced Brooklyn bruiser DUSTY LOCANE is ready to blow. Looking to continue his rip-roaring run to stardom, DUSTY LOCANE shares “Rumble,” a high-energy slice of Brooklyn drill. Produced by BlazinBeatz, who layers horror movie strings with drill’s signature staccato hi-hats and sliding 808s, “Rumble” finds the three-time Rolling Stone-charting artist establishing that he’s not one to be trifled with. The self-described “demon on the loose” doesn’t start fights, he ends them, sparing no time for those talking out the sides of their necks: “I hope that you you ready to rumble/Cause I bring my weapon with me, I don’t tussle.”
“Rumble” is only DUSTY LOCANE’s fourth single release, but the WOO-affiliated rhymer has already inspired an avalanche of buzz. He burst onto the scene with “R60LLXN N CONTROLLXN FREESTYLE,” a furious missive that racked up over 13 million combined plays on YouTube and Spotify and recently started to trend on TikTok. His follow-up, “Rolando (Caught In The Rain),” proved that DUSTY LOCANE’s success was no fluke, racking up over 1 million YouTube views and 1 million Spotify streams in its first week, earning praise from Pitchfork. Those two singles, plus his third single “INTRO 2 ME, PT. 1” (1.3 million Spotify streams), all made inroads on the Rolling Stone Trending 25 chart, with “R60LLXN N CONTROLLXN FREESTYLE” placing at #1 and “Rolando” and “INTRO” crashing the Top 10. With over 8 million on-demand streams in the month of January, DUSTY LOCANE recently made his debut on Rolling Stone’s Breakthrough 25 chart at #5.
With more music on the way and the streets of Brooklyn on his back, DUSTY LOCANE is a great bet to reach the next echelon of rap stardom in 2021. Keep an eye on the young rapper as he hurdles towards household name status.

“It was all in front of me; I just had to go get it,” DUSTY LOCANE says at the beginning of his viral drill heater, “Rolando (Caught In The Rain).” That’s an understatement: less than a year after he started rapping, the gruff-voiced, baby-faced Brooklyn spitter has experienced one of the most meteoric rises in recent rap history. He’s only released three songs, and he’s already a star: his breakout song “R60LLXN N CONTROLLIN” went viral instantly, and its follow-up “Rolando” garnered 1 million video plays and 1 million streams in its first week. The world is closely watching Dusty, and he’s ready to deliver.
