In recent years, there has been a new wave of creative and original grime artists that come from the most unexpected of places. A prime example of this phenomenon is Kubii, a UK rapper living in Ghana who is combining African contemporary music with the British underground. Merging an old school grime style with strong Hip-Hop elements and a laid back African swagger Kubii is quickly becoming One To Watch. After after proving himself in the African Hip Hop scene and being signed to a Ghanaian record label, Kubii is fast becoming a rising star among the ever growing African music scene. Rapping partially in Pidgin English, Kubii brings unique wordplay and a fresh flow that is unheard by Grime fans in this day and age.
In “Cats and Bags”, the laid-back vibe of the instrumental track is matched with a slick and confident vocal that was organically formed in Accra, Ghana. The whole feel of the track harks back to a simpler time and brings a fresh sound from the heart of Africa that perfectly crosses over with the culture of UK Hip-hop.
