From the venue:Wakai At 23-years-old, Wakai is a DIY aficionado with a preternatural ability for creating worlds around him visually and also sonically - this unique skill allows him to traverse the hip hop and art communities with a level of grace & force. Emerging at the forefront of a bubbling new-wave hip-hop community in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, Wakai earns respect from those who inspire him while nurturing a compelling sound of his own. His 2022 debut To a Dark Boy was a polished and personal introduction that featured the likes of Mick Jenkins, Emmavie and so much more, allowing his star to push past just “˜local buzz’ and catapulting him into the ranks of hip-hop’s most exciting newcomers; garnering a buzz from publications like The FADER, Pitchfork, and Lyrical Lemonade as well as earning a spot on Pigeons & Planes’ Best New Artists has left anticipations high for the southern multihyphenate’s 2023 sophomore album, Some People Scream, Some People Talk.
