Do you remember spending days running around the playground without a care in the world? Well translate that feeling into roughly 3 minutes of funky up-tempo Hip Hop and you have Jungle Gym.
Combine an endless imagination with down-to-earth sensibilities and you’ve got Mr Ekow. Taking inspiration from faith, people watching and everything in-between, he weaves together the everyday and the fantastical in gripping rhymes.
Growing up in Croydon as a 90s baby, he was strongly influenced by the tail end of Golden Era Hip Hop and the ascent of UK grime and rap. The end result is a versatile, jazzy and lyrically sharp rapper who loves to get a crowd vibing.
Mr. Ekow’s Between Haircuts project can be downloaded on bandcamp here.
