Today we’re stoked to be premiering a fire new hip-hop track from a talented artist Wasiu we’re excited about. We recently had the pleasure of premiering his collaboration with Tastytreat and he’s back at it with a must hear new single “The Odyssey.”
"This song is the modern day epic voyage inspired by Mos Def's Miss Fat Booty and the Ancient Greek poem The Odyssey by Homer," explains Wasiu, "I took my favorite parts from these two amazing stories and made my own tale. Taking a long trip across the city and getting seduced by a goddess. Will I ever return? I might get lost on this journey and drown in an ocean of sinful bliss. If I die, spread my cautionary tale across the land in the form of an infectious song with siren properties produced by Da-P." – Wasiu
The Montreal rapper has his album MTLiens 2 dropping tomorrow (Oct. 27) and was kind enough to drop off this impressive single ahead of the full project. For “The Odyssey,” Wasiu has linked up with Soulection producer Da-P, who has crafted an amazing instrumental with eerie chime melodies paired alongside punching horns and booming 808s laying the foundation for Wasiu to go in on top off. We hear Wasiu put her storytelling and lyrical abilities on full display as he kills his verses while delivering a catchy hook to compliment. Stay tuned for the full project and enjoy!
