Wax - I Ain't a Real Man (Free Download)

A little while ago I heard of Wax for the first time. I gotta start admitting that over at Jim's Fear, I often accidentally find a few gems, and that is exactly what happened when I was introduced to Rosana.

Initially I wasn't too impressed, it's a decent track about nothing too important. Well made video, decent rapper, whatever. I looked no further until I showed some friends the video some days later, and continued on to watch Coins. Suddenly, I was impressed, but I moved on.

Just a few days ago he was mentioned again by Watsky giving Wax praise for the talents displayed on today's track, I Ain't a Real Man.

If you're not a fan of rap, you probably just won't like it (so shoo!). The music behind the lyric is nothing amazing at all, what you're gonna get is a blast of well formed lyrics. This is what won me over and shoved me onto the Wax Bandwagon.

Give it a try.


As soon as he opened his mouth I was hit by something I rarely see in the world of Hip-Hop. He was humble. The first thing he says is that he's not a real man. There's no sarcasm, there's no play on words to turn it to his favor, but instead a series of words to make you understand why he thinks this way.

And that first verse just melts together and blends to make something talented and smart. And somehow free, the video came with his own MediaFire link.

Sure, the chorus thing isn't that smooth, but his point gets across. The rest of the song makes up for that, and if you liked that song anyway, I will highly recommend his free Scrublife Mixtape.

Stream/Download @ Bandcamp

I just finished listening to this maybe 3 hours ago, actually, and I would've been done sooner if I hadn't heard an exceptional piece of writing that I had to replay way too many times called Mary. I'd say it's the best rapped out story I've heard since Eminem's Stan, but I'm probably forgetting something...

I'd say I love a third of the mixtape. There's some average tracks, some alright ones, but even the 'meh' tracks have a load of fine rapping talent displayed right through them.  Some of my favorites include Old Ways and Two Wheels.. which you could say are related.

If you still want more, like I did, there's another free mixtape at djbooth.net which I'm not a huge fan of because of the terrible audio quality. Just buy the tracks, people.

And if you think you'd like some unplugged stuff, go check out his youtube (or website) because that series is starting today. A new episode every Monday for two months. I already saw a sneak peek with Rosana Unplugged, and I'm pretty sure the rest of it is gonna be awesome.

  1. And this is why I love certain types of rap - when they tell a story like he did. Just like Eminem does in Stan and so many others, people dismiss Eminem because of his "funny" stuff...sad really. I really loved this song - like, hey - lemme go find this guy for my iPod. Great find - thanks!!

    1. I'm sorry Anne! And he kinda reminds me a bit of Robert De Niro for Taxi Driver.

  4. The way that first verse flows reminds me of Eminem, or whatever the fuck he calls himself these days.
