South London’s very own Mundu has returned with a chilled out mixture of R&B and Hip-Hop that stands him out from the crowd.
‘Brag and Boast’ produces those bouncy beats alongside harmonies that create addictive tendencies to replay this track over and over again. But that isn’t a surprise given Mundu’s previous releases in 2019 that showed off the raw talent within the artist.
Mundu’s own way of rapping and slow vocals are a breath of fresh air and certainly one to keep an eye on.
Speaking on the track:
“Brag and Boast originally started as a freestyle celebrating the wins that I have experienced this year in the midst of the global pandemic, as well as the goals I am currently working to hit. Having first heard the instrumental by Kaelin Ellis (Lupe Fiasco, Virgil Abloh, Kaytranada) through a video that he posted on social media, I instantly fell in love with it and began writing the first verse with the video on repeat. Following that, I downloaded the instrumental and recorded the freestyle as a response.
After posting this on social media, I immediately received a heightened response from my audience (including praise from the likes of Kojey Radical, Chi “Chopper” Lewis-Parry and more), followed by a conversation with Kaelin Ellis in which we decided to begin the process of releasing the song in full. Following this, I began to build on the freestyle and develop the concept of celebrating both current and future wins. This created the song that we have now, allowing my audience to ‘Brag and Boast’ about making it through a difficult year.”
