Today, we premiere a new record out of the RAW Records camp from Montreal-spitter, Wasiu. A byproduct of Montreal’s cultural shift in music, while born in Quebec from Nigerian and Hatian descent, he grew up listening to 50 Cent and Eminem, and now as a rapper, he’s established his sound working with the likes of Kaytranada, OG Maco, Father, Lil Herb and Vic Mensa just to a name a few. In regards to today’s drop, here’s what Wasiu had to say:

“Dear Lola (co-founder of RAW Records) sampled Kanye West & Jay Z’s “Gotta Have It” and I immediately felt like they gotta have my music. My music is that ’80s crack shit, that classic shit, ‘I Got It’. The song is about having the hottest shit that everybody wants, but because the demand is so high, so is the price. Sometimes, you give suppliers consignment, and they don’t bring your money back, which is when you have to go and handle them with extreme measures. The weather is getting hot, this is my summertime anthem… Back in the kitchen, lets get to cooking, and turn these customers to fiends. This is that crack music.” -Wasiu
