Derek Wise releases debut LP, Vacay [News]

Toronto, ONDerek Wise premieres his debut LP, entitled Vacay, available now for free download. This project is a first for Derek and his W1SE GUYS conglomerate. Vacay is an original project created with a mixture of a redefined Toronto sound, majestic anthems, electronic music and classic hip-hop, with a style that showcases Derek’s clever wordplay and witty lyricism.

Derek Wise caught the attention of many when he released his singles, “The Prolog” and “The Suits”. The videos for both respective singles give the world a glimpse into a new wave of fashion and music cultivating in Toronto that is led by Derek and the W1SE GUYS collective. While Derek’s personal life is undoubtedly inextricable from his project Vacay, you don’t need to be on a vacation to relate to it – just someone who has ever felt dissatisfied with society’s idea of success. Overall, Vacay is a crowning balance of experience, tunnel vision, and raw talent. You can stream and download the project after the jump.
