EP: Dro Kenji – LOST IN HERE EP
The Internet Money/MiraTouch-Signee Flexes His Melodic Muscles and Collaborates with Peers like Jasiah, Mike Dimes & DC The Don on His 8-Track New Effort
“His future is bright” – XXL
“South Carolina rock-infused rapper Dro Kenji has been on a tear since last August when he received a call from the Internet Money team. Releasing project after project, Kenji has been showcasing his impressive vocals and emotion-filled lyrics. With his newest project, “F*CK YOUR FEELINGS”, we see Kenji’s most confident and cohesive work.” – Earmilk
“Once he selects a beat, the melodies and lyrics flood over him like an epiphany. The result is raw and heart-sinking music, meant to be a guiding light to fans.” – Audiomack
Dro Kenji uses his supernatural sense of melody to craft emotionally charged bangers. Coming through with a brand new 8-pack of tracks that show off his songwriting skills, Kenji shares LOST IN HERE, a new EP. Blessed by lush production from Internet Money producers including Nick Mira, Taz Taylor, Cxdy, Census, and many others, the new EP creates a sonic world that is easy to get lost in. The 20-year-old artist has the charisma to hold his own against the stellar instrumentals, as he weaves between minor-key arpeggios in “One Time” and bounces around a walking bassline in “BONEYARD.”
LOST IN HERE finds Kenji sharing the spotlight with three fellow Gen Z emcees. Produced by Census, Banrisk, Dynox, Bak, Morgn & Taz Taylor, the highlight track “So What” finds Kenji going toe-to-toe with DC The Don over a hard-edge, rage-style instrumental. On “Step Back,” Kenji takes time to flex alongside San Antonio spitter Mike Dimes, his singing providing a perfect complement to Dimes’ low-talking flows. Finally, “Mars” takes Kenji and famously fierce guest rapper Jasiah out of their comfort zones, as Cxdy creates an extraterrestrial atmosphere with gently-thrumming, steel drum-esque synths. With additional production from Earl On The Beat, LOST IN HERE is available to stream exclusively on SoundCloud.
LOST IN HERE follows in the wake of WITH OR WITHOUT YOU, released earlier this year. Home to singles like “VANISH” and “FINDERS KEEPERS” ft. Scorey, WITH OR WITHOUT YOU finds Kenji exploring the ins and outs of young love. He returned last month with his single “THEY DON’T KNOW,” which finds Kenji reflecting on romance gone rotten and fighting to keep hurt feelings at bay.
Never one to rest on his laurels, Dro Kenji continues to hustle his way to new heights. The South Carolina native is following up a breakout 2021, during which he released two albums and the hit single “KILL CUPID” ft. $NOT (13+ million Spotify streams). He was a standout performer at this year’s SXSW, performing at multiple showcases including Rolling Loud x RapTV‘s extravaganza at Stubb’s, and catching up with Variance Magazine.
Stay tuned for much more from the prolific artist–including a new project coming soon–as he continues his ascent to the highest echelons of the rap game.

Dro Kenji’s rise is a testament to the power of the internet. Last year, the 19-year-old artist was a senior in high school in South Carolina, releasing a string of captivating singles and mixtapes on his SoundCloud. Now, he’s preparing to release his debut album on Mira Touch/ Internet Money Records/ 10K Projects, collaborating closely with the label’s team of platinum-certified producers, and hoping to earn some plaques of his own. A true child of the digital age, raised on video games and the lo-fi sounds of rap’s online underground, he has a remarkable ability to capture both the apathy and aspiration of his generation in his songs and a spellbinding voice with which to tell these stories.
