Back in September, DNA Picasso dropped the 4-song EP, I-70. "High Roller" is the featured single from the project and the video for the song dropped concurrently.
The Denver-based rapper is known in the city for his work ethic. From 2018 to 2019, he's released over 15 videos, 3 EPs, and took home the 2019 Westword Music Showcase Award for Best Solo Rap Artist. In spite of a few wrong turns he made on his path that he details on his newest EP, I-70, he aims to continue learning and growing. "I just want people to be confident," he revealed. "That’s big right now. The fact that I’ve gotten to this point proves that betting on yourself is the only way."
On the EP, DNA alludes to some of the negative situations he found himself in over the last year, including a situation that had the potential to prematurely end his career. In "WWK?" he touches on how people want to know the truth about who the real person is behind the flashy jewelry and party persona. In "O.T.D.A." he talks about showing his doubters that he's a winner regardless of what they say. In "Surf" he acknowledges some of the hard lessons he learned throughout the year and reasserts his effort to keep moving forward.
"I’ve noticed that a lot of artists portray the great things and the hype or lit moments in their lives and don’t expose the other truths...I teased some of those truths on 'High Roller' and on I-70 in general.. but there’s so much more to come."
