South London rapper Wholagun drops the music video for his new single PRETTY & BAD, taken from his debut project, SOLUTION TO THE PROBLEM
Out of Croydon, South London, comes Wholagun. After 3 years of releasing visuals, accumulating in nearly 1 million views, the young rapper releases his debut project ‘Solution to the Problem’, featuring the tracks ‘Dirty‘ and ‘Pretty & Bad’.
The music video for ‘Pretty & Bad’ dropped on 18th Jan 2018 via GRM Daily, where Wholagun pays homage to his ‘pretty & bad’ girl over an infectious trap beat. The tracks form a backdrop to Wholagun’s story so far and offer’s a fresh and honest perspective.
He says: “My music is real and authentic; a reflection of myself. I like to express the good and the bad times in the most depth I can”.
‘Solution to the Problem’ was released in November 2017, born out of a natural partnership with producer Edixion, simply put:
“We just caught a vibe and made magic”.
Hailing from a musical family, Wholagun grew up listening to music from a young age.
“Music would make me happy and hyper. It was inevitable I was gonna be involved in music somehow”.
Whilst escaping an environment that echoes through most estates in South London; a cycle of gangs, drugs, and violence, which ultimately was the fate of many of his peers, Wholagun made a choice to follow his dreams. With a positive outlook, not always associated with UK Rap, Wholagun finds inspiration in artists that have met their goals, despite having the odds stacked against them.
Having collaborated with the likes of Section Boyz and K Koke to date, Wholagun has carved out his individual sound but still thrives on working alongside other creatives: a natural progression, given the talent concentrated in his particular pocket of London.
It’s an exciting time as the buzz surrounding this artist continues to rise.
