“Walk Away” by Maryland rapper Dutch Capital is a new track that’s picking up quite the buzz. Though it’s rare for a man to be so open about love, Dutch was more than happy to let his guard down when it came to finding Ms. Right on this song. “The vibe and everything was perfect. When we were in the studio together, I knew this was the one. The energy was great, and it happened organically,” Dutch says of this dope collaboration with Tory Lanez. [Billboard]
