The rising DMV rapper brings his nightmare raps and whisper flow to the True Laurels airwaves.

Goonew, AKA Goonrich, AKA Goonwick, AKA Wick, AKA Whisper God, AKA Big64, has only been in the game for a hot minute but is already helping usher in a new flow in the DMV: whisper trap. Defined by dark, melodic beats and nightmarish lyrics, the young rapper’s distinct style has already caught the attention of more established MCs like G Herbo and Lil Durk. On this week’s episode of True Laurels, Goonew calls host Lawrence Burney to discuss his creative process, life in Forestville, Maryland, and what he’s got in store. Don’t sleep.
