Rap pioneer Kwame
has returned to the front lines of the urban music industry by working behind
the scenes as Producer for platinum-selling artists such as Mary J. Blige and
LL Cool J.
Having sold over
three million albums worldwide, Kwame is familiar with what it takes to create
a strong street buzz. Currently, tracks produced by Kwame include: “10
Million Stars” on LL’s latest album 10 and an untitled track
featuring Cam’Ron on K Slay’s album soon to be released by Def Jam/Violator.
In 1989, Kwame
erupted onto the rap scene with his humorous, good-natured and intellectual
rhymes, not to mention his individual sense of fashion style. His signature
style turned Kwame into a household name amongst rap fans. By 1990, he produced
the remix of “Lies” for En Vogue, and in 1991, worked with BBD to
write their chart-topper “Poison.” In addition, Kwame wrote and performed
songs for such films as "Dancing in September" and "Ghetto Dog."
his fourth album, Kwame took a few years off to redirect his talents by way
of music education for children. Most recently, Kwame has produced “Scared
of You,” which will appear on the soundtrack for 20th Century Fox film
"Drum Line" due out later this year.
