Dwagie

Dwagie’s status in Asia is legendary: from being a founding member of the first rap group to secure a record deal to the success of his current album which has garnered him multiple awards. In addition to being a staple in the local hip hop media, he has also received much attention from international outlets, including interviews with TIME Magazine, CNN, BBC, Reuters, The Times (UK), Al Jazeera, and multiple appearances on Discovery channel. He even had NBA star Derrick Rose of the Chicago Bulls making a video cameo appearance.
Lyrically, Dwagie steers away from the shallow subject matter typically addressed in pop/club tracks, instead opting for messages with substance. This is no more evident than in his classic track, “People”, which outwardly displays compassion for all those who are struggling and suffering in this world. So poignant was his message in this song, that it lead to a meeting with Dalai Lama, who is featured in the song and music video.

In 2014, Dwagie collaborated with DJ Premier and Nas and released 2 tracks “Classic” and “Refuse to Listen,” respectively. The collaboration extends to street poet Talib Kweli, featuring in the song “Endless Cycle,” and the legendary Wu Tang for the song “Clown.”

Dwagie thus becomes “the Only Rapper on Earth Who’s Collaborated With Nas and the Dalai Lama” as The Village Voice described.

In January 2016, Dwagie took another step in expanding the range of his collaboration by releasing a song “One day” featuring the later elected president of Taiwan, Ing-Wen Tsai.

Dwagie took a bold step on 2017 by releasing a song “Words to Trump” featuring Raekwon from Wu Tang. The duo rap about the changes they hopes to see from their different perspectives. This song further solidifies his mission to influence the world through his lyrics.
