Highlighting his sobering perspective on toxic behaviors and substances with melancholy melodies,Â Dro Kenjiâ€™s music masterfully channels the elusive overlap of grief and contentment. Returning to caution listeners about the dangers of lingering in comfortably destructive cycles, Kenji shares the new video for â€œOver & Over.â€ â€œOver & Overâ€ will appear onÂ WISH U WERE HERE, Kenjiâ€™s next project, coming inÂ JulyÂ viaÂ MiraTouch/Internet Money Records/10k Projects.
Carefully navigating the trackâ€™s instrumental pockets of acoustic guitar melodies and bouncy percussion with his elastic flows, the track finds Kenji caught in a destructive cycle of heartbreak that he only slips further into the more he tries to escape it: â€œThatâ€™s just the other side, like who are you? Iâ€™ve seen you before/I got amnesia, my head hurts, and Iâ€™m falling on the floor.â€
In the cut for â€œOver & Over,â€ Dro Kenjiâ€™s trapped mental state is represented by the unwelcoming house he finds himself in. Itâ€™s a functional space, but not very homely, as industrial lockers stand in the place of dressers and cupboards. With no other company than plastic mannequins and the memories of lovers past, thereâ€™s little for Kenji to do but adorn his rose-tinted glasses by consuming the rose-tinted substances seen throughout the video, seeking an escape that falls further from his reach.
â€œOver & Overâ€ follows Kenjiâ€™s April single, â€œARSONIST,â€ a potent opening salvo in an exciting 2023 for theÂ Internet Money Records/MiraTouchÂ artist, which includes his upcoming project,Â WISH U WERE HERE. In 2022, Kenji kept busy, releasing three full length projects, including last Januaryâ€™sÂ WITH OR WITHOUT YOUÂ and last summerâ€™sÂ LOST IN HEREÂ EP, andÂ ANYWHERE BUT HERE, a 13-track project featuring the buzzingÂ Mike Dimes-featured track â€œSTEP BACK,â€ with guest appearances from fellow rising stars likeÂ Midwxst,Â Ka$hdami, andÂ NoCap.
Sit back and stay tuned as Dro Kenji continues his ascent to the highest echelons of the rap game withÂ WISH U WERE HERE.
