Lyrically, Dwagie steers away from the shallow subject matter typically addressed in pop/club tracks, that it lead to a meeting with global champion of Human Rights, the Dalai Lama, who is featured in the song and music video.

In 2014, Dwagie collaborated with DJ Premier and Nas and released 2 tracks “Classic” and “Refuse to Listen,” respectively.

This winter, Dwagie is going to bring his brand new English EP to the USA!
