Ghanaian rap sensationKwesi Arthurfinally releases a brand new project, his much awaited mixtapeLive From Nkrumah Krom Vol. II: Home Run. This project is his sophomore effort, and the follow up to his 2017 projectLive From Krumah Krom, the 5 track EP that pushed the young rapper into stardom.
Unlike his debut project, this time around the “Grind Day” rapper presents 9 songs in total, clad with features from Nigerian singerMr Eazi, Ghanaian dancehall heavyweightsStonebwoyandShatta Wale, African rap royaltySarkodie, Nigerian alternative goldenboySanti, and South African rapperNasty C.
Behind the boards on the project are Ghanaian producersNxwrth, Nixie Official, Mindkeyz, MOG Beatz, 079Rayf, Uche B, andKayso. The Ground Up collective act and Tema born emcee has delivered 33 minutes of sober hip-hop, up-tempo dancehall riddims, and unique afrobeat blends.
The rapper has come a very long way from where he was at the time he released his first project, and the project title is surely metaphorical for where he is at in life right now. Having delivered a “home run” through his achievements, this project represents Kwesi’s victory lap, and very rightly so.
