Waajeed -- born Robert O'Bryant IV in Detroit in 1975 -- grew up in Detroit's Conant Gardens, the birthplace of the soul-driven hip-hop underground music.
His latest EP, ‘Mother’ is set for release mid-March on Carl Craig’s iconic Planet E imprint, with Craig himself providing additional mixing on the EP. The title track, Phonica's selection for their weekly premiere, features emotive vocals from Detroit singer-songwriter Steffanie Christi’an, driven forward by an arpeggiated synth lead and shuffling percussion.
Mother by Waajeed is out on Planet E on March 16th.
