Closed Sessions’ Kweku Collins has been on a roll since his Nat Love project dropped a few months back. The young MC has headlined a fair amount of shows around the Midwest and just recently opened for Grandmaster Flash in Brooklyn. Today, Kweku released a visual for my personal favorite off Nat Love with “Stupid Roses”.
The track, which takes its slow rolling bass line from D’Angelo’s “One Mo’Gin” (another personal favorite) describes Kweku’s attempts at winning the love of a girl he’s crushing on. The video, shot in Milwaukee and directed by @claplantfilms, details Kweku running, skating, driving and walking with a bouquet of roses presumably meant for his crush. However, Kweku chooses the company of friends instead of possible love in the end, which is hardly uncommon for a 19 year old.
Keep your eyes and ears on Mr. Collins. He’s one of my top prospects coming out of Chicago for the next year.
