After countless mixtape and compilation features, Raja Wilco releases his brand new video and single to radio from his upcoming album titled BWIK (Make It Happen) featuring Sir Aah (Produced by Sureet from Digital Desi).

This song is a collaboration of a talented group of Urban Desi hip-hop pioneers which include Sir Aah and Sureet Sandhu (both worked with Slaughterhouse, Clipse, Nipsy Hustle) from the DMV (DC Metro Area). The production by Sureet (Digital Desi) starts with a laid back acoustic guitar setting the vibe, hard kicks for the beat and flutes to give the chorus its ambiance. The song represents the everyday grind and the long roads traveled on a daily basis for work or school and back on the highway to get home. Represented is the everyday struggle and hustle along with the long journey these rappers have faced in music and life. BWIK (Best Way I Know) expresses the fact that these artists have put forth their best not only in music, but also everything they do. In short, they "Make it happen...."

Packed with metaphors and punchlines the track is dedicated to the late great GURU from the legendary Golden Era hip hop group GANG STARR. They were such an influence to Raja, that he is felt obligated to release this track now, one year after GURU's passing.

The video has a bonus with a mix between the new BWIK single and the highly praised politically charged Something's Goin On released previously. Some cameos include entrepreneur Amish Shah, DMV rappers Ko the Timeless and Tej Naik along with super producer Sureet Sandhu himself.

Growing Up in New Jersey and the NYC metro area, he was exposed to a lot of groundbreaking music including Hip Hop, RnB and House. Writing was his first foray into the creative realm as a high school student. After a couple performances along with his gigs as a DJ in NYC he intertwined with the culture. Going to school and living in NYC gave him further drive not only a part of the music but a focal as a rap lyricist and MC. Since the debut of his song The General, which garnered so much positive attention and airplay thanks to Bobby Friction, Nihal, Adil Ray and others in the UK, he has time and again been able to diversify his musical portfolio and put out quality music. With songs such as Raja That (Apni to US version), and Tonight. Features also include Ni Soniye (Juggy D), Gal Dil Di (Soni Pabla) and My Letter 2 You (Mohd Rafi, Kami K). He has consistently been playlisted on BBC's Radio 1, Generasian Radio, Galaxy FM, and BBC Asian Network reaching as high as #3 on the charts. With additional airplay in India, collaborations with UNIVERSAL and SAREGAMA plus performances with Jay Dabhi, Cassidy, Imran Khan, Jay Sean, Rishi Rich and more has humbly brought Wilco to this point.

The video has two songs on display a mix between the new BWIK single and the highly praised politically charged Something's Goin On released previously.
