After being dealt a few terrible hands in life that warranted an extended hiatus from Hip-Hop, Wafeek returns with fury on his latest EP, ERA: Act 1. The passion has clearly been thriving inside the STL native, because even at a short four cuts, every one of them is packed with more of the detailed emotion that put his previous efforts on our radar years back.
However, with provocative views thumping throughout tracks that are both menacing (“The Black Sun”) and leaned-back (“Spice It Up”), the time away seems to have only helped this budding MC grow further.
Then again, aren’t life experiences – whether good or bad – supposed to be fueling our growth? Maybe Feek’s just learning faster than other artists.
