I’ve been listening to their Mixcloud radio shows for a while now, so it’s about time I showed a little love to Soulection. They’re a label/collective/movement doing cool things out of Los Angeles, and they just dropped their 21st release, a nine track EP by a rapper named Waldo.
Waldo is an MC out of Grand Rapids, Mich. He was recommended to Soulection by producer Sango, whose quality beats can often be heard on the label’s weekly radio show. Apparently, Waldo is only 20 years old. Always room to grow, but no denying the young man has talent. “Poison” is the real deal. From Sango’s lush beat to Waldo’s crazy ill rhymes and flow.
Here’s what Waldo had to say about the release:
“Honestly, Pick Your Own Poison is about finding your lane in life. Whether if the lane you choose to pursue is right or wrong it’s still the poison you chose. It’s also about my life and the poison I chose.”
