Video: Wacotron -“The Blues“
The Waco Rhymer Pays Tribute to the City That Raised Him in the Latest Video From His Out The Blue Mixtape
“Overtop booming 808s, Wacotron’s laid-back charisma commands attention.” – DJ Booth
“808 Mafia-affiliated and dedicated to the art of rhyming as much as he is to making undeniable bangers, Texas native WacoTron wears his allegiance to his hometown on his sleeve.” – UPROXX
“His flows are impressive and seem to naturally roll off of his tongue which shows off his masterful outlook and impressive aptitudes despite his relatively new entrance into the music scene.” – Lyrical Lemonade
“Southside protege Wacotron is a new-ish name, but he sounds like he’s been doing this for years, balancing simplicity, interiority, and the confidence of an established vet.” – UPROXX
Wacotron digs deep to find the heart buried within his street tales, dropping gems of wisdom for people stuck in the trenches. Sharing a therapeutic message about the struggle, Wacotron shares “The Blues,” his new music video. With an appropriately guitar-driven instrumental from AL-D Productions, the soulful and hopeful song finds Wacotron channeling the Texas blues singers of decades past, speaking directly to folks in his neighborhood, empathizing with their problems and urging them to make the most of the time they have: “For your time up/Go get it now, there ain’t no tellin’ where you wind up,” sings Wacotron on the hook. The video spotlights the regular people who make up Tron’s Waco community, as the rising rapper gives them the shine they deserve. “The Blues” is a standout track from Out The Blue, Waco’s most recent mixtape.
Released in November 2022, Out The Blue brings gruff words of wisdom and sly turns of phrase over hard-hitting Texas production. With contributions from Southside, 808 Mafia, and Marshmello, who produced the closing track “Time Is Money,” the project boasts 11 harrowing trap tales from the heart of Texas, establishing Wacotron as the man to watch in his state’s thriving rap scene. Featuring guest spots from Doe Boy and Derez De’Shon, Out The Blue is available everywhere via Pick Six Records.
With Out The Blue, Wacotron builds on the success of his debut 2021 mixtape Smokin’ Texas, which received praise from Complex, HipHopDX, DJ Booth, and more. He hasn’t been entirely quiet over the past year, though, as he’s made waves in the rap game with singles like “Raw” and “Free Mason” (each with over 4 million streams on Spotify). The Waco, TX native has been an ambassador for central Texas rap, working alongside other Waco risers and boosting their careers while he becomes a star in his own right.
Stay tuned for much more from the young rapper in the near future.

A native of Waco, TX–hence his name–Wacotron showed a passion for music from a young age, absorbing the 808-driven trap music he listened to in the car with his dad. After spending years mired in the struggle, Wacotron turned to rap in his 20’s, searching for a better way to provide for his family and escape his circumstances. The rapper started to build a reputation in his home state, eventually catching the attention of Pick Six Records, who signed him to a deal and connected him with Southside and 808 Mafia. He released his debut project Smokin’ Texas in April 2021.
With the weight of the influential 808 Mafia behind him, Wacotron is in prime position to make his mark on the rap game in 2022 and beyond.
