Hip Hop music is a popular genre in Kenya. Both artists and listeners indulge in this genre. While artists such as Khaligraph Jones, King Kaka, Steph Kapela and Barak Jacuzzi are some of the most sought after rappers in the country at the moment, below are talented rappers whose new music is really missed:
- STL Mwangi
The Norway based Kenyan rapper is one of the most talented femcees to have hailed from Kenya. Her bars in her popular songs such as Haba, Lookie Lookie and Biashara, earned fans across the globe. Her track Set It off was the official soundtrack trailer to Hollywood film Bad Moms and HBO series Insecure.
- Jay A
This younger rapper rose to fame after his track On Me in which he featured talented songbird and media personality Amina. He later did more tracks such as Dumbala and Dumbala Remix which were both certified bangers. His verse on the Ligi Soo Remix solidified his position as a respected rapper in the game.
Her name never misses in the list of talented Kenyan femcees. Her unique bars continue to earn her fans in Kenya and abroad. In 2015, Wangechi was featured in CNN Inside Africa. She boasts of songs such as Here’s To Us, Used To It and Sana Sana.
The rapper took the industry by storm when he dropped his song Obe Baba which became an instant club banger. He went on to drop the remix with STL Mwangi and more song such as Need Somebody and Kendi among others. Last year, he did the Bae2 Ep Project in which he dropped various tracks while experimenting with various genres such as trap, Hip Hop and Afro-Beat among others.
He is definitely the king of conscious music in Kenya. The rapper who was a member of Ukoo Flani, stirred the rise of his solo career with songs such as Bisceps, Hela, Exponential Potential, Bahasha Ya Ocampo, Utawala and Kama Si Sisi among others. Even though it has been a while since we heard new music from him, his songs will continue to inspire his listeners.
