The East Coast rap universe has a new MVP. Sheck Wes, the Harlem born MC has caused a quiet storm stateside with some of the biggest tracks of 2018; among them the inescapable ‘Mo Bamba’, dedicaded to the eponymous NBA player and whose video has been watched 230 million times. Following Mo Bamba, Wes’ has released a run of trap bangers ( “Chippi Chippi”, “Live SheckWes Die SheckWes), that perfectly show off his dark, street ready rap style in the vein of Nas, Ghostface Killah or A$AP Rocky.
It’s no surprise then that his debut LP ‘Mudboy’ has been released by Kanye West’s G.O.O.D. music, under Travis Scott’s Cactus Jack imprint. Wes’ show at Sónar will be his first show in Spain, making it the perfect time to catch this artist who’s set for the Major Leagues of Rap.
