With London’s long-standing reign as the rap capital, slowly but surely being infiltrated by the uprise of undeniably talented MC’s from across the nation. Coventry’s Mugun, the 22-year-old rapper, skating-enthusiast and Manga lover is confident that his distinctive delivery and innate ability to flow comfortably over any beat will be enough to take the scene by storm.
Rooted in a culturally diverse upbringing; from being raised in Coventry, his love for Japanese animation (which inspired his name) to being immersed in Jamaican culture, when he moved to the country at 13-year-old. He combines all of those perspective broadening experiences together to channel them into his sound, lyrics, style and visual content.
Having already started his career off on the right foot, Mugun has appeared on tracks with critically acclaimed artists such as Nyge, Kojey Radical and IAMDDB. Subsequently landing him a nomination at the ‘Get Rated‘ Awards in 2016 and also saw him take home the ‘Best Urban Act’ at the Unsigned Music Awards that same year.
Now, he gears up for his first release of the year entitled ‘IFIKWEFF’, alongside it’s cinematic visual accompaniment. Taking a hands on approach Mugun lends his hand to the writing and self-direction of the cut. During, we see the rapper flex his cold rhymes from an introspective angle; while coating the suspenseful production, led by the rings of piano keys and seasonal drums clacking on cue, with his unique diction and cool charisma. Drawing its inspiration from the artist’s life, we see scenes of the rapper with his friends, getting his hair braided and being pulled over by police.
