Hailing from Evanston, Illinois, a short drive from downtown Chicago, rapper/producer Kweku Collins has a diverse background in music and experiences. Signing to Chicago based label Closed Sessions last year, Collins’ arsenal of meaningful music has grown exponentially as he prepared for his label debut, “Nat Love.”

From politically charged, nursery rhyme-esque “Death Of A Salesman” to the airy sounding, “Vanilla Skies,” Collins has found the perfect blend of subject matter and melody on the nearly self-produced album. With the only production help coming from fellow Closed Sessions artists Boathouse and oddCouple, Collins stands tall on the boards showcasing his double threat of beat making and emceeing.
