At times, it feels as though the music, and on a larger scale, the culture, is stuck in a hazy sleep. So much injustice. So much negativity. And while none of this is new, UnLearn’s had enough of it, hence his latest project, The Wake-Up Call, a tour-de-force of an album rife with sharp lyricism, a critical eye on society, and deep personal introspection few artists are capable of. Far from a new jack, UnLearn’s been releasing music for well over a decade, starting off with bangers from producers like Jake One and only growing from there. With a slew of strong independent releases under his belt, UnLearn has earned every fan he has, yet as his music continues to spread, it’s clear there will be many more fans tuning in. UnLearn takes some time out of his day to chop it up with ProfileWild about The Wake-Up Call, his artistic process, his activism, how he succeeds as an independent artist, and much more, and of course ends with a dope acapella.
