But B Wise's rise didn't happen overnight. In the years leading up to this critically acclaimed album, the Nigerian-Australian artist released a string of genre defining singles which showcased storytelling skills far beyond his years, which were embraced by the likes of Complex UK, Rap Nation and triple j (Australia's biggest youth radio network). The latter has heavily embraced B Wise, spinning multiple songs in high rotation inviting the young artist to perform on their coveted Like A Version show, which saw him transform Red Hot Chili Peppers 'Under The Bridge' into a deep and uplifting modern day anthem. His catalogue currently has over 12 million streams and counting across services.
B Wise's intensely energetic performances have earned him a rep as one of the best live acts in the country, seeing him play the biggest festivals and supporting international artists such as Jay Rock, Schoolboy Q, Yelawolf, Vince Staples, G-Eazy and Freddie Gibbs.
