Bobby Hagens, a native of the forever-underappreciated and always-buzzing DMV region, joins with BJ The Chicago Kid for “Lost Wild.”
Hagens discusses the troubles in everyday life for an African American male in America as BJ summarizes the theme of the song beautifully with the hook: “It ain’t fair, but we still here, so I still care.” Hagens is new to my ear, and I was going to offer some artistic comparisons, but according to the song, he hates them. What I can tell you is, based on “Lost Wild,” he seems to have an even influence between southern aggression and struggle mixed with some New York sound and flow. Basically, this dude has some serious potential.
