“Lyrically he comes across as both book and street smart and has the direct cadence of a great live performer.”XXL

“Wara… has nearly bled mind, body and emotions dry in writing and scoring his audible biopic.”Passion of the Weiss

“If the piano breakdowns and gloomy production are any indication of how soulful Wara gets with his music, we can’t wait to see more of him in time.”Complex

“One of Atlanta’s best kept secrets – though not for much longer.”PotholesInMyBlog

“Wara has been holding it down for musically explorative hip-hop.”HotNewHipHop

“One of Atlanta’s most promising acts of the new wave.”Ashley Outrageous

“The gloomy, minimalist production… is perfectly suited for a late-night ride through town.”  – The FADER 

“His hook and verses are on-point.”MissInfo.TV

Keeping the mood as murky as possible, Wara makes his presence known over a spooky backing voice positioned against a secluded guitar and drums.”OnSMASH

“… the rawest shit you are going to hear for the rest of the year.” – Mass Appeal

“Wara’s a writer and a slick rapper, a talented producer who knows how to shape an album’s worth of songs into a world.” – Pitchfork

Wara recalls the 1990s of Wu-Tang Clan and the early 2000s of Pharrell Williams’s Neptunes and N.E.R.D.” – The New York Times

Wara From the NBHD might be ATL’s next rising star. The Brooklyn born, Atlanta-based rapper serves as an embodiment of both of the areas he grew up in. An artist with a unique ability to blend both cultures seamlessly with striking lyricism and impressive production. This sentiment is highlighted with Wara’s The Ill Street Blues, a mixtape that garnered critical praise from notable outlets such as The FADERComplex and XXL. The project portrays a dichotomy of the good and bad Wara has experienced in his life, notably personified by his son sitting next to a gun on the mixtape’s cover. His 2014 release Kidnapped is a concept album produced entirely by himself, which gained praise from HipHopDX, Pitchfork, and more. In February 2015 Wara released his If Guns Could Speak EP and is gearing up for his upcoming album, slated to release later this year.
