2016 saw the first glimmers of light from the Western Sydney suburbs artist Kwame. A 20 year old student of hip hop who was just finding his legs, when a chance meeting with the legendary A$AP Ferg confirmed the path he now treads.
His stellar debut EP ‘Lesson Learned’ and lead single ‘Friends’ was the last time we heard from the stalwart in March of 2017 before he was dubbed the 45th most played artist on Triple J’s Unearthed. This was the bookend moment to a massive 2017 which also saw Kwame sign to Vita Artists alongside Peking Duk, Nyxen and Tigerilla as well as dominating the live circuit supporting cultural heavyweights Migos, 6lack, Bliss N Eso, Wiley and more.
Fast forward to February 2018, Kwame wastes no time in bringing us his new certified summer anthem ‘WOW’ to help us ride out the final warmer months. From the moment it’s fruity Kalimba drumline hits to the catchy pitch shifted hook hollers “You the man now, poppin’ on the gram now” - ‘WOW’ lives up to its name. What’s more impressive is the quirky pristine track was written AND produced by Kwame, stacking up the odds in his favour as a clear stand out artist in 2018.
‘WOW’ is also the lead single from his upcoming Sophomore EP ‘Endless Conversations.’, out March 23rd...it promises to be a divergent offering with Kwame saying “In life we shouldn’t set ourselves to achieve just one thing, we are capable of so many things and we should never limit ourselves”.
