Throughout college, Wi$e felt conflicted between fulfilling his parent’s desire for him to become successful in the traditional sense and his own desire to drop out of college to find success outside of the bounds of a classroom. He took an early retirement from his chemical sales career and began to travel the world and during his travels, he experienced a period of soul-searching.
His most recent installments include full-length project, Cognac Woodgrain, and an EP titled, Chapter 27.
