Who Is Watsky? A Rap Prodigy


Who is George Virden Watsky? A rapper, author, actor, poet, twin brother, and next iconic rapper. George Watsky mainly goes by his stage name Watsky. He was originally born in San Francisco, California. He has a twin brother named Simon Watsky, who happens to be a helicopter pilot. Watsky and his brother Simon are 30 years old. His parents are Clare and Paul Watsky. Watsky attended Emerson College in Boston. His love for poetry began when he was only 15. From that point on, his poetry turned into music and from music into 11 Hit albums.

Album/ Book Release

Watsky has just released a new album in August of 2016 called "X Infinity." The Album has a total of 18 tracks, featuring award winning Hamilton star Daveed Diggs, as well as Julia Nunes. The songs on the album are easy to relate to for all types of people. The album was released right before Watsky's new book was released as well. The book is called "How To Ruin Everything." The book went on sale for everyone on 6/14/16.

Watsky's next available tour dates are:

Nov 18 / Soma / San Diego, CA Nov 25 / Warfield / San Francisco, CA Nov 26 / Fonda / Los Angeles, CA


Watsky has been my favorite rapper for going on five years. My favorite songs of his are "Ninjas In Paris," "No Flex Zone (featuring Karmin)," "Moral of the Story," and "Midnight Hearts." His songs differ from being silly to meaningful. Most days that is just what I need. Apart from having a huge crush on Watsky, I don't know whether or not he is single. I Listen to Watsky on a everyday basis; I have every album of his on my laptop. I recommend Watsky to everyone because it is nice to have a variety that doesn't always have to be vulgar and demeaning. Watsky will probably continue to be my favorite rapper for a very long time, as long as he continue to make music.
