Courtesy of a new collaborative effort between AuxfordWave and TrippyBooth, we proudly present the inaugural Artist of The Week: Blasian Junkie.

(The Cornerstore by: Andrew Long)

Backed by a naturally intriguing cadence, the 20-year old emcee is one to keep an ear on. With a delivery similar to that of rapper Yung Bans, Junkie’s ability to casually flow in and out of the beat adds an interesting mystique to his work. He most recently appeared on the JacktheMartian produced tape, Loading EP.., alongside fellow Oxford rappers Hunnidbxndd, Jay Sensei, Sonnyb. (Stream that here) Each of the rappers on  the tape are a part of a growing collective of rappers in the Oxford area dubbed, The Cornerstore.

The past few months have been quite busy for Blasian Junkie, but the increased workload lends itself to an extensive list of new drops. The rapper mentioned upwards of two projects worth of material coming in the near future.

The first of these come with “Check” and “ILMB” set to drop in the next week or so. While you wait, stream his previous tracks below.

TrippyBooth plans to continue shooting podcast episodes and freestyle videos for the continued future. Follow them @TrippyBooth on Instagram and Twitter for updates and new Hip-Hop content.
