Born Dennis Olanrewaju Broderick II, Waju (pronounced Wah-joo) is back his latest offering in the form of "If U Wanna" featuring producer Medasin with additional vocals from Phantom Thrett. Fueled by soulful vocal harmonizing and a downtempo hazy production, "If You Wanna" is an enticing listening experience from the LA County native. After releasing Something Special in 2008 and Something Special Vollume II the following year, Waju is ready to release his LP JuiceBox- a collaboration with LA-based producer Huss.
Drawing influence from 90s groups such as De La Soul and Outkast mixed with J. Cole and underground vets like Little Brother and Binary Star, Waju is ushering in a new sound, seamlessly blending hip-hop and contemporary soundwaves in this digital age of music. His affinity for clever punch lines, word play and lyrisim set him aside from his counterparts, describing himself as "just a kid with something to say." And we will definitely stay tuned to listen.
Stream "If You Wanna" above and stay tuned for more from Waju!
