The countdown To HipHopDX At SXSW: WishGRANTed
To comply with the D1 Entertainment signee of Baltimore, aka "the rapper with the saxophone."
WishGRANTed is a rapper who brings something different to their live performances. With his saxophone and dance moves, the Baltimore native offers an experience that combines instrumental Hip Hop with dope lyrics, inspired by the likes of Kanye West, Big K. R. I. T. and J. Cole.
He dropped the "Famous" only last December, and has shared stages with the likes of Curren$y, Audio Push, Dave East and more. The D1 Entertainment signee will be releasing their debut EP in early spring.
WishGRANTed spoke to HipHopDX while preparing to take the stage for the DX in the showcase at the SXSW music festival on March 16.
