Kweku Collins is a 21-year older rapper/producer/songwriter from Evanston, IL, who has been making music for most of his life. Born into a musical family, Kweku joined his dad on-stage playing African drums as early as the age of 4. As a teenager, Kweku transitioned to making his own music, crafting bedroom classics throughout high school. In 2015, just shy of his high school graduation, Kweku joined the Chicago's indie rap outfit, Closed Sessions, and shortly after released his debut EP, Say It Here While It's Safe. The EP received critical praise and landed Kweku on Pigeons and Planes 20 rappers under 20 List. In 2016, Kweku followed up with Nat Love--a proper LP that garnered an 8.0 Pitchfork Review, produced a Pitchfork Best New Track, and landed Kweku in publications such as The FADER, Billboard, Chicago Reader, and more. In 2017, Kweku released his second critically acclaimed project in as many years with his new EP, Grey. His latest single, "ET," references the world's favorite fictional alien, all the while showcasing the immense ability Collins has to add his own touch to things that have come before him. He has completed 2 European tours, played Lollapalooza, supported Whitney on a US tour, and Ones To Watch is proud to present his fall 2018 headline tour.
