“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 exudes raw emotion through his rich vocal tenor, carrying a melody like few others in the rap game today. Today, the 20-year-old artist announces the “ANYWHERE BUT HERE Tour,” a 13-date tour embarking this fall. Kenji will co-headline seven of the tour’s dates with fellow rising star Midwxst. Kicking off in Seattle on October 30th, the tour makes stops in Atlanta (11/19), Chicago (11/25), and Toronto (11/27) before finishing in New York City on November 29th. Tickets for “ANYWHERE BUT HERE Tour” are available now.
Along with the tour announcement, Kenji shares the video for “OH WOW,” the standout opening song from his recent project ANYWHERE BUT HERE. Produced by Earl On The Beat, Census , Paryo & Taz Taylor, “OH WOW” is a slinky, yet expansive ode by Kenji to his vices, which range from mind-altering substances to earth-shattering lust: “You’ve been stuck inside my head/Yes, I’m a fiend, wow-wow/Sometimes I just wake up from my dreams and scream out loud/Cause I need my loud/And I need my drugs/Baby, you’re my drug.” In the video, Kenji takes a trip to NYC, where he dances on rooftops in Brooklyn and ruminates in a Downtown subway station. The new video follows up “SHALLOW,” the latest in a line of many quality visuals from ANYWHERE BUT HERE.
Home to the buzzing Mike Dimes-featured track “STEP BACK,” currently charting in Spotify’s U.S. Viral 50, and featuring appearances from fellow rising stars like Midwxst, Ka$hdami, and NoCap, the 13-track ANYWHERE BUT HERE captures the breadth of Kenji’s ever-improving artistry. On “SO WHAT” ft. DC The Don, Kenji injects his melodies with monstrous energy, while “CIGAR” captures a fatigued ferocity as Kenji howls his heartache at the moon. When presented with cinematic instrumentals from Internet Money producers like Census and his MiraTouch label head Nick Mira, Kenji rises to the occasion, belting lovelorn relationship tales and diabolical flexes through his full-bodied tenor. ANYWHERE BUT HERE is available everywhere via MiraTouch/Internet Money Records/10K Projects.
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.
