Inspired by a mixture of artist’s including, Oxide and Neutrino, So Solid Crew, Styles P, Kirk Franklin and Mary J Blige; Kwakzino has released his new project, 2 Legit 2 Quit. With a sound which can only be described as different, the messages portrayed in Kwakzino’s music can take some time to grasp. However, he is working on perfecting his craft so that listeners can understand the message after the first listen.
Coming from Croydon, London, Kwakzino talks about many issues surrounding him including drugs, guns, women and money. However, he points out that he does not celebrate these, as he portrays positive messages about the reality of living in South London. The positive spin on these issues creates a refreshing sound.
The motivation behind the music is his family, having two young sons under the age of two years old, and a partner who has supported him throughout his journey in music, he wants to provide as much as possible to them.
The new project 2 Legit 2 Quit is definitely one to inspire, motivate and empower those who are living in similar situations. As he says that he wants to motivate anyone who’s living a negative lifestyle to switch to a more positive approach. After listening to the project it is clear that Kwakzino is one to watch, I’m excited to hear any future work from him.
