Wasflkhider Torres is better known as Wasel. You can only wonder where he was born and raised with a name like that! Born in Cali, Colombia and raised in Houston, Texas – he paved his own path with no shortage of obstacles. Rather, he calls these “lessons that teach how to achieve”. His poetic ways are naturally exposed when he writes. “I love his passion!” said Antwan Williams from Dafjam / Routerunnar. “You can hear it in his voice when he speaks. His passion, his drive, his urge to create and build.”
Raised on his own since the age of 16 without the help of any family or any positive role models, Wasel successfully built his own porcelain construction company, Tristone Innovation. “Wasel isn’t just a music artist,” said DonDinero from Addventures music.“He is a Boss, a CEO, has great energy and that’s why I chose to work with him.”
After many years of struggling and adversities, Wasel has always managed to stay positive and smiling. Wasel’s music and poetry isn’t just deep-it’s meaningful. It’s his life’s experience on paper, it’s a piece of his heart and soul. “I’m going to bring back music with meaning, words that that are felt and live on long after I’m gone,” he says.
His album “P.O.E.T.R.Y” drops this year. It’s more than just hip-hop; it’s words with lessons and layers of meaning- with words that sculpt statuesque visions of his life. This Houston artist’s album is a must hear. The album will help you see life through his eye.
