Dro Kenji is obsessed with Internet Money. ANYWHERE BUT HERE, the singer-rapper from Lost In Here, is set to be released tonight (Aug. 26).
Kenji promised to reveal the album’s release date if fans left 5,000 comments on his announcement post. Kenji met his goal quickly, so the tracklist for ABH wasn’t released until August 22. There are appearances by Mike Dimes (“STEP BACK”), DC The Don (“So What? “), Midwxst, No Cap, and KA$HDAMI.
Donny and Dimes appear on his July album Lost In Here. The video for “STEP BACK” came out hours before the album.
After a string of LPs, Kenji’s underground stock continues to rise. With January’s WITH OR WITHOUT YOU, the young “SUPERSTAR” achieved his highest chart placements. “SO WHAT?” is now attempting to break into the mainstream.
In May, when he released “THEY DON’T KNOW,” Kenji told OGM that ANYWHERE BUT HERE is “big boy shit.” He was referring to how large it is for him.
Because of Juice WRLD and XXXTENTACION, Kenji enjoys love-torn, emotional soundscapes. The 20-year-old South Carolinian is a rising star in his own right. His grunge-influenced love ballads set him apart from his new wave contemporaries.
If Lost In Here is any indication, Dro Kenji’s new era could be ANYWHERE BUT HERE. Danny Jerome Jenrette, aka Dro Kenji, was born on November 1, 2002 in Virginia. He is a musician from South Carolina who now resides in Los Angeles.
Following the success of “Finnished” on SoundCloud, he contacted Internet Money Records with the assistance of Jonathan Hicks, his manager and A&R.
His first IMR single was “100 Rounds.” Nick Mira was successful on Twitch. His first Internet Money project, Tears and Pistols, was released in 2020.
