Floridian rapper Wahid has unveiled two-track EP ‘WILT/CORNERSTONE’ via LA-based imprint Innovative Leisure.
Wahid came close to retiring after his rap collective disbanded. Through sheer grit and perseverance, he emerged from a period of creative torpor, reasserting himself through a slew of solo experiments. ‘WILT/CORNERSTONE’ comes after last year’s standalone release ‘Hell Is Hot’, showcasing Wahid’s feel-good, introspective lyricism over warm, eclectic production.
Wahid shares this on the two tracks: “’WILT’ is a record conceived after I drank a cheap bottle of Stroysky liquor in the studio with Kaelin and Iggy. I wanted to emulate carefree vibes on Isaiah Rashad’s ‘House is Burning’ album. With a lot of Damian Marley playing through the studio speakers, ‘CORNERSTONE’ is a direct inspiration from a song his father wrote, which is one of my all time favorite songs. Meek shall inherit the earth, last shall be first.”
