Toronto Rapper Kofi
Extraordinarily hardworking, Kofi is a perfectionist. He is an artist that does everything. He raps, writes, gives soulful R&B records, produces his own records, and then delivers bangers. The melody-driven artist has created a lyrical landscape as an illustration of his growth as an artist and human being. He has definitely grown and he says it himself by stating, “I’m not who I was before, but I think you can hear the evolution on this. It’s elevated and exactly where I want to be musically right now—moving forward.”
“Why Not? is truly a love album to everything in his life. He bares the question of why can’t one person do it all? “You can’t be an athlete and a musician. You can’t be a producer, artist, singer, rapper, and you can’t have a thriving career and a relationship.” This album is living proof that you certainly can do it all.
