Nearly halfway through the piece, we feel the truth and honesty of Solo, the potential his music catalogue has.
”Wicked Bogus, Kid” is not his first song, a range of different sounds blending Hip Hop inspirations like Eminem or Tupac with the Rock heart that characterises him are at the center of each song.
