A chance meeting with A$AP Ferg two years ago confirmed the path he now treads and set the young hip-hop prodigy on a quest to empower others through music, just as he has been before. Piquing the early interest of industry with debut EP Lesson Learned and lead single ‘Friends’, Kwame’s first release saw him become one of the most played artists on triple j Unearthed.
Bursting into 2018, Kwame returned with summer hip-hop anthem ‘WOW’ from his latest EP Endless Conversations. Written and produced by Kwame, the release propelled him into a triple j Unearthed Feature Artist spot, triple j rotation, multiple Spotify playlists and supports alongside heavyweights Migos, 6lack, AJ Tracey, and a national spot on the recent Peking Duk ‘Wasted’ tour.
At just 20 years old, the Western Sydney-based writer, artist and producer is a triple threat. Now with over 1.6 million Spotify plays on ‘WOW’ in just a few months and a legion of growing fans, Kwame isn’t slowing down. He’s just taken out the winning spot on triple j’s Splendour in the Grass competition where he’ll perform on his biggest stage yet and has a few more surprises to announce before the year ends.
