Old friends, industry contemporaries, and usual collaborators, Kweku Smoke and Bosom P-Yung are undeniably two of the hottest new age prospects on the Ghanaian rap scene at the moment.
Although Kweku Smoke and Bosom P-Yung are on their individual musical journeys, each with his own come-up story, the continuous association between the two looks to be that “unique element” that spurs them on to greater heights.
Previously going by the stage name YRS, the young rapper’s rebirth to Kweku Smoke set him on a journey that saw him make an instant impact! Almost a year ago, the Bolinga Nation act made his first major outing under his new pseudonym with rap anthem “Yedin” featuring Ghanaian rap titan Sarkodie. The song became an instant success! A combination of consistency and controversy (including a well-documented public spat with Ghanaian Dancehall icon Shatta Wale) has seen Kweku Smoke maintain his relevance a year into his emergence.

Bosom P-Yung’s break out story is a tad more dramatic. The promising act made an overnight jump from the obscurities of the underground rap scene to mainstream prominence earlier this year. His unorthodox sing-rap style, unique fashion sense and crazy dance routines caught the attention of fans when he performed his now hit song “Attaa Adwoa” on Flowrhythmz, culminating in the video going viral and the song becoming a colossal hit! Just days prior the internet sensation was your typical Soundcloud rapper with “Attaa Adwoa” being first released as part of his debut EP (titled “AWIESU“) back in July 2019.

Barely five months into his emergence, the “Attaa Adwoa” hitmaker’s alliance with old friend Kweku Smoke is looking like a match made in heaven – a symbiotic relationship that promises to propel both acts to the next level. The synergy between the two cannot be denied. Aside from mounting a number of stages together (the most recent being this year’s 3Music awards), the two have also churned out a handful of collaborative efforts dating back to their “underground” days .
Perhaps it is in recognition of this that they look to be on the verge of the formation of Ghana’s next rap super duo, quite reminiscent of what Joey B and Pappy Kojo accomplished.
Going by the umbrella tag Krakye Geng, Kweku Smoke and Bosom P-Yung, look to have officially outdoored their alliance with self-titled hip hop cut produced be Atown TSB.
