SOUTH LONDON RAPPER KWENGFACE IS MAKING HEADLINES AS HE REMOVES THE MASK AFTER 5 YEARS


Kwengface is making headlines as he reveals his identity after more than five years of hiding behind a mask. The South London rapper, known for his distinctive high-energy flows and uncompromising bars, is finally putting a face to the name, allowing his fans to connect with him on a deeper level and get to know more about the UK's most exciting rapper.


The momentous occasion premiered last week on the prestigious COLORS platform alongside his new fittingly titled single, ‘Freedom’, taken from ‘The Memoir’, which dropped on Friday. ‘Freedom’ sees Kweng finesse his flow over an unexpected Garage-inspired production courtesy of CZR, with him stating how he’d risk his freedom to stand up for those closest to him. The track is a powerful statement of Kweng's values and priorities, and it's a testament to his talent as a songwriter and performer.


Kwengface first made waves in the UK Drill scene as a member of the Zone 2 collective, known for their uncompromising bars and gritty sound. His reputation continued to grow following the release of ‘3 Stripes’ in 2018, still considered one of the most highly regarded tracks in UK Drill. However, Kweng's career has not been without its challenges. The contentious single ‘No Censor’ was removed by YouTube, initiating cancelled shows and an injunction, forcing Kweng to question his future within the music industry.


Despite the setbacks, Kweng has continued to evolve and grow as an artist. 2021 was a breakthrough year for him, with notable highlights including his debut mixtape ‘YPB: Tha Come Up’ and his legendary ‘Plugged In’ session, which went viral, accumulating over 13M views and counting. In 2022, Kweng continued to make waves with his acclaimed 12-track mixtape ‘YPB: The Archive’, performing at Size Sessions Festival, and collaborating with Knucks on his triple Daily Duppy.


Now, with the release of ‘The Memoir’ and his identity revealed, Kwengface is more committed than ever to put in the work, despite any challenges put in his way. ‘The Memoir’ features collaborations with some of the UK's biggest artists, including Giggs, Knucks, Reekz MB, and Karma, and production credits from the likes of Carnshill, JME, Nyge, CZR, and Bill. The album is a testament to Kweng's talent and dedication as an artist, and it's sure to be one of the standout releases of the year.


Kwengface's decision to reveal his identity is a transformative move that allows his fans to continue connecting, supporting, and getting to know more about the UK’s most exciting rapper. With his star on the rise and his talent on full display, Kwengface is a force to be reckoned with in the UK music scene. Keep an eye on this rising star as he continues to make waves and cement his place as one of the most exciting and talented artists in the game.
