More of an 'artist' than rapper, Mwuana is the Swedish emcee with something to prove. Last month the Stockholm-native, real name Robin Nyström, dropped a stunning mixtape titled MW-GO! and even though it's almost entirely in Swedish – it's a great listen. On it, the 28-year-old rapper blends late-night afrobeat vibes, bumpin' trap production, and a melodic sing-rap style reminiscent of Drake, and the result is an irresistibly catchy hip-hop/R&B sound that transcends language barriers.

Despite being nominated for Hip-Hop Artist of the Year and Best New Artist at numerous Swedish award ceremonies in 2016, Nyström, who got the nickname Mwuana (meaning 'first born child') on a trip to Uganda as a teen, isn't content with being Scandinavia's top emcee. Instead, he wants to be as big as possible – but not for the fame, or the money. In an interview with Bon Magazine, he commented:

"I want to be so big that I never have to sacrifice my creativity. My driving force has always been trying to prove that you can come from anywhere and still do great things."

Now the ambitious emcee, who lists Salvador Dali as his only idol, has released a hot new track called 'Se Dig' ('See You' in English) that serves as the lead single off his much-anticipated debut album Triller that drops this Friday, May 12th. Stream it here.

Hear standout tracks 'Min Nya', 'Sånna som Vi' and 'Lever Livet' off Mwuana's 2017 mixtape MW-GO! available now on iTunes and Spotify.
