South London independent rapper, Mr Ekow has just released his latest single 'Heart of the Matter', featuring Myles the Rhetorical, and produced by Nathan Prospect.
Mr Ekow delivers a new soulful cut, pondering love in the 21st century: Heart of the Matter. If 500 days of summer was a hip hop song, this is what it would sound like. With a video shot on the rooftops of his hometown Croydon, Ekow shares an alternative valentines day message, in which arrows from flying babes aren't to be relied on. Instead he gets real about his own struggle to find love, while attempting to redefine it.
Combine an endless imagination with down-to-earth sensibilities and you've got Mr Ekow. Taking inspiration from faith, people watching and everything in-between, he weaves together the everyday and the fantastical in gripping rhymes. Growing up in Croydon as a 90s baby, he was strongly influenced by the tail end of Golden Era Hip Hop and the ascent of UK grime and rap. The end result is a versatile, jazzy and lyrically sharp rapper who loves to get a crowd vibing.
