Krakye Geng frontman Kweku Smoke maintains the hedonistic and boisterous persona he first unleashed on 2020’s Snoop Forever across his sophomore solo project, the six-track EP Big Shmoke.
On “Nkrumah”, he compares himself to the legendary Ghanaian statesman Kwame Nkrumah, rapping and singing on the bouncy trap beat about being a messiah “come to save the game”. He goes ballistic on the drill-heavy “Woso”, delivering with a feistiness that compatriot Sarkodie, who has endorsed him on social media, would be proud of. And on “Chairman”, he goes toe-to-toe with asakaa frontman Yaw Tog and regular collaborator Bosom P-Yung to birth a new anthem for the genre.
