Sydney rapper Kwame is fast establishing himself as a must-know name in the hip-hop scene. After being crowned Triple J Unearthed's Artist Of The Year, he has dropped new single "CLOUDS".

As much about the message as the music, Kwame's latest single flaunts his powerful flow and commanding delivery. Also announcing a headline tour for next year in Australia, ticket sales illustrate his hype, with numerous dates already sold out.

With a strong rhythmic delivery, "CLOUDS." explores self-realisation as Kwame's reflects on his childhood and recent growth. Sharp to the point, lyrical contrasts collide with everyday events and outbursts about the frantic nature of it all. Backed by bass heavy, trap-inspired beats and punchy electronic tones, "CLOUDS." justifies his recent accolades.

Kwame's playlist following has grown by 293% this week

Picking up editorial support from 14 influential Spotify playlists this week, Kwame has picked up over 3 million playlist followers this week, taking his total to 4 million. Also capitalising on playlist and Triple J support, his direct artist following has grown by 5.77% to 5,352 in the past 7 days (Instrumental Music Scouting Platform).
