A Lyrical Demigod In WRDS

Some people may feel talent is god given, 2nd nature, and others would argue that it is sculpted from practice, experience and passion. As an artist, WRDS seems to display a natural talent within his hip hop lyricism and flow. Seemingly spitting verses casually as he raps about life and his perspectives. Especially in his latest releases following up from his WINTER SOLSTICE EP, which was a great display of his lyrical ability.

Gods & Champions seems to be the theme surrounding his latest singles, ICARUS, NIMBUS II and CAMPEON. Strolling in casually with lo-fi, boom-bap styled beats rappin’, “the chosen one? I have to be, my pen never atrophies. Yea, god given, god taketh, yes a born sinner but this gift is not forsaken,” in ICARUS, who in greek mythology gained wax wings to fly but flew too close to the sun. In NIMBUS II, a storm cloud that reveals a god, a perfect metaphor for WRDS lyrical strength, “Chemtrails left from my Nimbus, I’m feelin refreshed, feelin tremendous. Dug my self up out the trenches, my rain drenches those who stand against us.” With CAMPEON, spanish for champion, he really proves just that he is one, using nothing but boom bap, letting his lyrics do all the work with his god like flow.
