But not just a direct imitation, RAINBOWGOD manages to carve out his own lane and sound with pure confidence and swagger.
“The Wizard” is a fresh sound in this era of copy and paste, and RAINBOWGOD could be primed to carry the torch for Based-music. Only time will tell, but we’ll definitely be tuning in. He’s currently gearing up to release his next mixtape.
