Kwajo describes the meaning of his originally concocted word "Spleck" as something that he attributes to anything good in his life, hence the title and message of his debut EP. The north Virginian rapper delivers smooth bars over enticing cheerful beats. His highest streamed track to date "Inside Out" featuring his twin brother, SH1NOB1, is an introspective piece that reflects on the journey of independence and looking at different situations regardless of their outcomes through a fresh perspective. Kwajo’s narrative-filled flows, enhanced with radiant summer production, creates an addictive combination reminiscent of the style of Chance the Rapper, KYLE, and tobi lou.
Spleck is a project Kwajo began in 2019 and channels his experiences of love, friendship, and growing up through the pandemic. "Stay Up!" is an uplifting track with a catchy hook that introduces the confidence that Kwajo exudes throughout the project. Tracks like "That’s Tuff!" and "Little Bit" are energetic uplifting bangers with compelling rhymes and groovy beats while "Before I Disappear," "WDYN?," and "Patience is Taking Her Time," illuminate a more personal and ruminative side to Spleck.
Kwajo is definitely an artist to watch with his blossoming catchy and infectious hooks matched with his humble and sunlit aesthetic. His unique perspective on the journey of adolescence is transparent in his new project Spleck, a debut SoundCloud lovers will certainly devour.
