Wara from the Neighborhood – “Riccardo Tisci”
Tuesday, August 21, 2012 by Jas Boston | No Comments | Category: Music, Music Video
Wara From The Neighborhood, Brooklyn born, Atlanta raised, represents a different time in the city as well as its new energy. Imagine if Ronnie from “Menace to Society” still took her son Anthony and
moved to Atlanta as they were planning to do just as Kane was shot dead at the end of the movie. Who would little Anthony have grown to be? Wara speaks from his perspective, maneuvering through melodies like a young gold-mouthed Shawn Carter with the funk one would expect from an outcast and the “take no shit” disposition of a dude with attitude. Recognizing the beauty in ignorance, Wara has shown commitment to honesty, creativity and substance in his music, assuring his growing audience a bright future of solid but difficult to categorize street tunes, provocative visuals and maybe just maybe some growth of his own.
