Tune in and turn up

You’d be forgiven if you weren’t able to name a French MC off the top of your head. Even die-hard hip-hop fans may not be paying close attention to what’s going on outside their national borders. But Kekra is here to change all that.

Aside from showing a preternatural skill for delivering bars, we know next to nothing about Kekra. We don’t even know what he looks like, as he has taken to wearing a mask at all times. This mask is on proud display in “Uzi,” his newest music video which is making its premiere right here on Highsnobiety. It initially appeared as a bonus track on this year’s release Vréel 2, and puts the rising rapper’s talents into razor-sharp focus.

Stream the deluxe edition of Kekra’s Vréel 2 below via Spotify.

For more of our premieres, take a look at Hoodlem’s delicious new club banger “Funny Farm” right here.
