Hailing from the DC/MD/VA area, acclaimed Hip Hop Recording Artist, WAWA, has been hitting the ground running with music with insatiable drive since he first picked up the mic in 2005 and began writing and rhyming at an unstoppable pace. When you go to "WAWA's House" you'll be taken to a whole new level of music through DEAF eyes! With 15+ years in the game and no signs of slowing down, WAWA's critical reception and positive acclaim has manifested over the years through not only admirable work ethics, but also through a charismatic, diligent original persona and genre that he labels "Dip Hop" (Hip Hop through deaf eyes), a unique sound of audio & imagery that has helped the rising artist garner a growing fanbase that has landed him many opportunities onstage, in the studio, and beyond, including performing the national anthem at Super Bowl LV. His Dip Hop rendering explores Hip Hop, focusing on taking on challenges and educating people about deaf musicians in the hearing world.
