I would say Drake has had the biggest influence on my style of rap ‘cos I started rapping because of him. I think I first listened to him in 2010; Thank me Later basically changed my life. There’d probably be no Kwesi Arthur if there was no Drake. But as I got into rap music, and music in general, I [discovered] artists like Coldplay, Eminem, Kojo Antwi, Lana Del Ray, J. Cole, The Weeknd and many others. I stan Jay Z and I really like Bob Marley. I was into him even way before I got into this. African artists like Daddy Lumba, Samini, P Square, Daasebre Dwamena, Fela, Shatta Wale, Stonebwoy and many others have also influenced me in other ways. I get a different perspective on rhythm and melodies listening to these greats.
