Sheck Wes Does Right By Trap In New ‘MUDBOY’ Album

New Releases

Trap music has separated itself from hip-hop as a bold new subsection of the life-altering genre. While youngin’s and old heads have the great debate about the fate of current day hip-hop, Sheck Wes has delivered a trap album that should make some nay-sayers reconsider. MUDBOY is the most recent work to hit streaming sites on Oct. 5, courtesy of the Harlem-based rapper and Interscope Records affiliate.

This album is a 14 track playlist, with Sheck at the center of it as the stand-alone feature artist. With 49 minutes of the 20-year-old rapper in your ears, you hear his journey to becoming a self-proclaimed MUDBOY. In an interview with Zane Lowe, the musician described a Mudboy as “somebody who came from nothing, you know, who turned nothing into something. You know, when I was in Africa, in the rain, I walk around in, like, mud. The sand would turn to mud and you are not getting out of that.”

Khadimoul Rassoul Cheikh, known by fans as Sheck Wes, incorporates his hit song “Mo Bamba,” which debuted on the Billboard Hot 100 chart. “Jiggy On The Sh*ts” distinguishes itself apart from the others as Cheikh displays his bi-lingual skills, bodying the song in two languages. “Live Sheck Wes” and “Wanted” also appear in this LP.

Mudboy is Sheck Wes’ debut album but it serves as a high-impact introduction worth listening to. Stream the album below.
