Portland’s viral phenom Wynne has released her debut project If I May. The rising star’s first mixtape features production by Thundercat, Sounwave, DJ Dahi, Hit-Boy, Theory Hazit, Thelonious Martin and Jahaan Sweet, among others.
“The idea of a white female rapper has always been controversial because of appropriation and a lack of self-awareness,” she said in a press release. “I embody that controversy. I’m well prepared for it because I know that first and foremost I’m a guest of the culture. As a guest, I’m going to be as hard-hitting, intricate, lyric-oriented, thoughtful and detailed as possible in reverence.”
Wynne’s new tape is comprised of 11 tracks. Guests include J.I.D, Cipha Sounds, Vursatyl, Illmac, KayelaJ, Mahalia and Portland Trailblazers star Damian Lillard a.k.a. Dame D.O.L.L.A.
