Montreal rapper Wasiu continues to prove he’s someone to keep an eye on. Though he has yet to release a fully-formed, multi-track project, he’s proven himself to be a unique, skilled lyricist and a rapper capable of spitting over several different styles of production. Now, he’s linking up with A$AP P On The Boards –whose sinister, unorthodox beats recently propelled the music of Maxo Kream– for a new song entitled “Picture Imperfect.” Like many Wasiu songs before it, “Picture Imperfect” has a clear narrative and concept. The Canadian talent chooses to use the song as an opportunity to take on topics such as “suppressed anger” and “frustration,” while attaching this following statement to “Picture Imperfect”:
The overall theme of masking your pain in order to preserve face really hits home. Growing up in a divorced home it seemed like the number one goal was to make sure that everyone on the outside thought that everything was great on the inside, even if it killed us.”
Wasiu definitely has a real, genuine motive and message. You can listen to “Picture Imperfect” above.
