I’ve been tryna tell y’all. Kweku Collins is one of the more sprawling young talents in the music world, and he’s developed into one of my personal favorite up-and-comers. I first discovered him via the triumphant “Kings,” which later landed on his Say It Here, While It’s Safe EP last summer. Since, he’s gone through string of loosies before settling into the promotion of his new LP, Nat Love. The rapper/singer first delivered “Ghost,” following it with the bright and somehow-positive “Death Of A Salesman,” a song delving into the despair of police brutality and race relations in America.
Collins, who produced all but one of the songs on his new project, navigates Nat Love largely by himself. Two features, Jamila Woods (“Ego Killed Romance“) and Taylor Bennett, come consecutively, and he gets some help on the production side from fellow labelmates OddCouple and Boathouse.
