No Man’s Land is the latest single from London rapper Mr Ekow and is his most honest and vulnerable to date. This is his coming out story. Taking the audience by the hand, Ekow painstakingly paints his every thought and emotion over stripped back melancholy production. The journey is one in which we hear him struggle to reconcile his faith and sexuality and in turn battle with depression and suicidal thoughts. The song features production from Nathan Prospect with electric guitar played by Jacob Hilton.
Combine an endless imagination with down-to-earth sensibilities and you've got Mr Ekow. Taking inspiration from faith, people watching and everything in-between, he weaves together the everyday and the fantastical in gripping rhymes.
Growing up in Croydon as a 90s baby, he was strongly influenced by the tail end of Golden Era Hip Hop and the ascent of UK grime and rap. The end result is a versatile, jazzy and lyrically sharp rapper who loves to get a crowd vibing.
