HipHopDX Premiere: Aspiring Oregon rapper Enkay47 has dropped a new single, “Different.” The track comes from his forthcoming album, My Own Lane, which is expected to arrive on August 31.
“A lot of people don’t realize just how similar we all are,” Enkay explained to HipHopDX. “Millions upon millions of people are treated horrifically due to something as superficial as skin color, or having dyed hair/tattoos and I wanted to point out the ignorance in that. Contrary to popular belief, we’re not that different.”
The 21-year-old started writing music at the ripe age of 15 in an attempt to make friends and “fit in” after being bullied and alienated by many of his peers. As time went on, he realized how much of an impact music had made on his upbringing and wanted to help other people in the same way.
