Ever want to know who Wrekonize wants to collab with more than anybody? What kind of music he grew up on? What his first album he ever listened to from front to back was?
All these questions and more are answered in Wrekonize’s appearance in “Real Recognize Real”, an article series by our good friends over at DJBooth.net.
