Rising MC Dave paid a recent visit to BBC Radio 1's Live Lounge where he recorded an unlikely cover of Lana Del Rey's "Born To Die." The rapper showed off his versatility, sharing vocal duties on the melancholy chorus, as well as tapping into feelings of isolation in his rapped verses, "I'm looking for a friend on this long lonely road but the further I go the more I feel alone."
