Wasiu – “Many Dreams”
By Amber B
“Wasiu is the hip-hop voice of Montreal,” said i-D in their premiere post of the 24 year-old Quebec native’s latest single, “Many Dreams.” Wasiu delves into his struggles and outlook on life, the positive side of materialism, and the desire or yearning to achieve a goal or endpoint. He teams up with Soulectionproducer/fellow Montrealer Da-P dabeatX, who crafts a melodious instrumental that builds around 2Pac‘s posthumous Biggie collaboration, “Runnin’ (Dying To Live).”
“We all have dreams and aspirations,” Wasiu explains to i-D. “Some of them are altruistic in nature and others selfish and materialistic. This record focuses on the latter. With the overall theme of the album being a relatively dark and heavy depiction of our society, I wanted to include some lighter and fun moments. That being said, this song is simply about the material dreams of a broke rapper aspiring for more.”
