"Wafeek "Monster" Single"

Wafeek’s music has never been short of wit and imagery, making it better visualized and seen than heard. Many of his tracks play like sonic dream sequences than songs, allowing listeners a theater seat to view Feekee’s warped mind in 3D. On “Monster,” the longstanding Force member drops sensational, memorable punchlines dedicated to one of the sources of his twisted approach to musicianship. Of course, the track’s muse is a she and she’s been the inspiration for many an emcee, but Feek’s ability to intricately meld words around the catchy beat make the show all the more enthralling.

Releasing on Oct. 28th, Wafeek’s Monster: The Mixtape will be presented in conjunction by TSS, 2DopeBoyz & IMKing hosted by Trackstar The DJ. - The Smoking Section

"Wafeek - Rep My Hood"

As a long-time fan of Wafeek, I am pleased to bring you the lead single from Gotty’s aforementioned dirty little secret. As part of the TSS review crew, I am well aware of the massive volume of albums, mixtapes, EPs, remixes, videos, etc. that get released every year. With so much music out there, it’s so rare that an artist stands out, and when they do, it’s often for the wrong reasons.

Wafeek stands out for one reason, the best reason: his talent. He’s got the total package for a rapper: the ability to vary rhyme styles, thoughtful lyrical word play and, most importantly, a killer sense of humor. All his skills are on display on this project, and I’m happy TSS is a part of it.

“Rep My Hood” is one of the hardest tracks on The Aristocrats Mixtape. Over a sparse drum beat, Feek proves vocal distortion can be used to do things other than whine about one’s breakup. The grainy effects on the vocals accentuate the desperation of the lyrics. The misplaced priorities of the young Black male are the subject, and the picture Feek paints is a bleak one at best.

Despite this, two factors make this song accessible and, in a way, uplifting. Wafeek’s poetic abilities on lines like “Better to bag a fast bitch than to be with your wife/but being born Black is bringing evil to life,” make listeners take pause and admire. And the ferocity of the chorus resonates with people from North St. Louis to Greenwich Connecticut. All hoods have problems, but they are where we are from, and we represent them, good or bad. Wafeek may be tearing The Lou a new asshole, but the defensiveness in his voice when he reps his hood, hints that he loves it just the same. - The Smoking Section

"Wafeek - The Meaning of Life"

Bunker mentality is what transformed me from a casual Wafeek listener to an outright Wafeek fan. The shared experience — in this case, the cocktail-infused haze of a Hip-Hop show — makes would-be strangers become fast friends in the blink of an eye. Or kick of a drum.

I couldn’t tell you for certain what terrain was covered in the time we b#llshitted with King B#llshitter himself, DJ Trackstar, but I know I walked away with the understanding that Wafeek is much sharper than your average rapper. His quick wit and approachable air are equally reflected in tracks like this, “The Meaning of Life.” His relaxed delivery and ear for beats are palatable like good conversation over cocktails. He makes Hip-Hop sound as easy and universal as the shared experience; where would-be strangers become fast friends over the kick of a drum. - The Smoking Section

Wafeek can often be found sipping tea and grey goose in a porcelain teacup whilst contemplating the plights of this modern world. He tends to fiddle with his sometimes frizzy but mostly well kempt waist length dreads. When meetings commence, he’s been known to sprawl out in the middle of questionably stained carpets, blunt in hand, ready for the daily business banter.

He’s what you could call a high functioning alcoholic. A mad man. An intellect. But primarily, Wafeek is a rapper. He exudes modesty and humility. He’s a man who’s been caught cringing, even fleeing the room when his music is played. But it must be somewhat of a façade. Even he can’t deny the raw talent he has worked so hard to develop over the years.

This St. Louis native began his hip hop career with the name Allah. But when a friend deemed the name blasphemous, it was quickly aced and became Wafeek. Close friends call him “Feek,” girls call him, “Feekee,” and he calls himself nuts.

He’s been in the rap game for most of his life. It began as a bonding experience between friends. After recognizing certain inherent skills, he decided to hone them even further. Rapping around town quickly transitioned into working tirelessly to become a successful hip hop artist.

After spending most of his existence deeply rooted in St. Louis, he decided to attempt the whole school thing. He left. He came back. It just wasn’t for him.

He currently passes his days meticulously recording his first full length album “Monster.” Of course he won’t let anyone forget the logistics of making an album is never done single handedly or vice free. His producer Rudeluv, singer/song writer Sum Difference and sound engineer Shawn all play their role in this multifaceted artist’s budding musical career.
