Run DMC broke the pavement and became the first to ever bring Hip-Hop and Rock music together with their critically acclaimed single "Walk This Way" featuring Aerosmith. Since then, Hip-Hop has expanded into something that isn't afraid to test waters & challenge perception--the lines are now completely blurred.
Atlanta rapper, Wara From the NBHD keeps that legacy alive with his new release, "Down Since Birth", somewhat bringing a N.E.R.D. vibe to his music.
In this record, Wara From the NBHD analyzes the evils of money and how it can affect a person's life. Even with that being so, he's still down to ride for the almighty dollar.
All production credits go out to singer/multi-instrumentalist, Conner Youngblood, who also lays down vocals over the incredibly powerful beat.
Wara has previously received much praise from credible sources such as The New York Times, who quotes, "Wara recalls the 1990s of Wu-Tang Clan and the early 2000s of Pharrell Williams's Neptunes and N.E.R.D." (as previously mentioned). XXL, Complex, The FADER, Mass Appeal, Pitchfork, & many more publications have also shed light on his music genius.
Rap/Rock is a very intricate sub-genre within the culture. Listen below as Wara From the NBHD gives insight into theory of D'evils.
