Urban Pop/Hip Hop collective The Posse released the 2nd single off their upcoming compilation Astral Planes featuring Tanzania’s fast rising rapper Chief Mufasa. The song, written by (PosseBoys) Barry Mo, Lennox Leroy and Chief Mufasa was produced by South African producer Statronika and one of Kenya’s best secrets, producer Atwal Aduok. The two producers previously worked together on Waka Nare performed by both Barry Mo and Lennox. The mind blowing artwork for the project was shot and designed by Vic Munga .
The Posse teamed up with the talented graphic designer to orchestrate a theme they dubbed ‘Metropolitan Mind‘ having spent most part of their lives between cities; Kisumu and Nairobi . The whole song is based on the concept ‘creep’ which is an English word with multiple meanings but in this case it refers to hustling your way up.
Kreep is an anthem for the young hustlers clubs who are “creeping” up and want to put claim on whatever field they are involved in. It’s also an anthem for the “misfits”, those who chose unconventional careers and are trying to achieve in whichever fields they picked despite the social pressures to subscribe to the “good jobs” culture.
Kreep is the ultimate East -South Africa connect, the project connected young artists from Kenya, Sudan, South Africa and Tanzania. The Posse (Barry Mo X Brenda X Lennox) have mastered the art of versatility at a very young stage of their career, the collective’s dynamics has allowed them to venture into different sub genres and creatively craft cross genre collaborations like December Nights which featured soulful vocalist Ms Kemunto to an Afro-politan trap banger like Kreep. The collective is signed to to its own budding label We Are The Posse which is currently running #AKreepForReal, a campaign put together to promote the single. With a unique collective set up and self driven mindset the Posse has forged an organic fan base and heavily rely on social media platforms like Tumblr, Facebook, Instagram , Snap Chat, Sound Cloud etc to connect with fans and share their music. The Posse is breathe of fresh air in the music scene, Adele Onyango referred to them as the ‘Kenya Sevens of Kenyan music’ during their recent interview at the KISS FM evident from their persistence and unimaginable knack to always push the envelope regardless of the odds.
