Emerging Rapper Wakai Embraces Manifestation on Laidback Single “‘05 Honda”


Wakai is an emerging rapper coming out of a vibrant new-wave hip-hop community in Baton Rouge. Having only made his debut last year, he’s already been creating some buzz as an exciting new talent to watch and he’s certainly garnered our attention. Today, he’s making his TSIS debut with his latest single “‘05 Honda,” out now via THANKS Recordings.

Featuring Maryland’s Malik Elijah, “‘05 Honda” is a laidback summer jam that puts listeners right in the artists’ shoes. The car is intended to be a metaphor for the rappers’ respective careers while reveling in what they’ve already accomplished. Wakai showcases his impressive lyricism and storytelling while also allowing the people around him to flourish.
