Ghanaian award-winning rapper and singer, Kwesi Arthur, has finally released his highly anticipated debut studio project christened ‘Son Of Jacob’ album. Stream ‘Son of Jacob’ here: https://platoon.lnk.to/son-of-jacob
On the 15 track LP the rapper, born Emmanuel Kwesi Danso Arthur Junior, taps into his ancestry to offer a representation of contemporary Ghanaian life – replete with its highs and lows. He also channels his mellow voice while exploring the personal, familial and social.
From the reflective “Silver Spoon”, aspirational “Paper” and bass-heavy “Winning” featuring VIC MENSA, Arthur’s fluidity sees him weave multi-lingual flows between trap basslines, Afrocentric percussion and smooth pop melodies.
Showing a musical dexterity, the Tema native crafts jovial lines alongside Nigerian singer Teni on “Celebrate” before enlisting UK-based outfit NSG on the Afroswing “Diamonds Dancing”, blending asokpor and amapiano on “Animal” and infusing highlife on the gospel-tinged closer “Adom”.
