The above track is a sample of what Dejuan Whaley has to offer. The 23-year-old worldly rapper (he was born in Philly, grew up in Jersey, and has roots in Cote d'ivoire [the Ivory Coast for the non-French speakers out there...shame on you]) is prepping for the release of his new project I.D., which according to Whaley, "will be a narrative of the personal challenges [he] faced in 2016 but most importantly it'll be addressing America's addiction to opioids. [This is because] drug overdose deaths are the leading cause of injury death in the US and the pharmaceutical companies are the new Mafia."
Whaley also hit me with a collaboration he did with Mick Jenkins called "Rude Awakening." The track is fire and really hits where it needs to: your headbrain. So, check it out below, hit up Dejuan and say "this was heat," and vibe with the "Rude Awakening" he and Mick give us on this one.
