“So What” is a Highlight From LOST IN HERE EP, Now Available On All DSPs
The Prolific 20-Year-Old Prepares For His Next Project ANYWHERE BUT HERE, Dropping On August 26th
“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
Supernaturally skilled at finding tuneful ways to approach an instrumental, few rappers in today’s game can carry a melody like Dro Kenji. Today, the ultra-talented 20-year-old teams up with another budding Gen Z icon for “SO WHAT,” his new music video. Produced by Census, Banrisk, Dynox, Bak, Morgn & Taz Taylor of Internet Money, the track finds Kenji and 22-year-old Milwaukee rapper DC The Don trading verses over distorted, rage-friendly synths. In the video, Kenji and DC flex in front of a blood red background, stunting like two Gotham City villains who finally got the best of Batman. “SO WHAT” is a standout track from LOST IN HERE EP, now available on all platforms.
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 follows in the wake of WITH OR WITHOUT YOU, home to singles like “VANISH“ and “FINDERS KEEPERS” ft. Scorey, and ahead of ANYWHERE BUT HERE, Kenji’s next project. Home to the single “THEY DON’T KNOW” plus more songs to be revealed soon, ANYWHERE BUT HERE arrives on August 26th viaMiraTouch/Internet Money Records.
Just 20-years-old, Dro Kenji has amassed a sizable discography. Determined to hustle his way to new heights, the young rapper is improving with every release. The South Carolina native is following up a breakout 2021, during which he released two albums and the hit single “KILL CUPID” ft. $NOT (20+ 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.
Sit back and stay tuned as Dro Kenji 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.
