Kwabs 'Wrong Or Right'

Kwabs welcomes in 2014 with the SOHN produced 'Wrong Or Right.'


On the heels of taking us to church on one of our Top Songs of 2013, Kwabs welcomes in the new year with a brand new showcase of his gospel-inflecting, high powered pipes. The sophomore union of the Ghanaian/Londoner with electro-soul multi-instrumentalist/producer SOHN, "Wrong Or Right" turns dancefloor vibes up following their soul churning partnership on "Last Stand." Kwabs, whose more than earned a spot as a symbol of today's renaissance moment in R&B, looks back to a golden era in 90s crooning this time around. His latest gem will join "Sprit Fade" and "Last Stand" on a 4 track EP also titled "Wrong Or Right" (due out February 3rd). Ben Pearce– who brilliantly reworked Anthony Hamilton's Cornbread, Fish & Collard Greens– was tapped on for a remix of the EP's namesake. Until then, listen to "Wrong Or Right" below.

Created in 1992, this police unit was originally set up to beat back armed robbery, the use of firearms and rising cases of kidnappings that grew in the late eighties. However, the unit went rogue, becoming more notorious for its savagery than actual crime-fighting. With a rap sheet ranging from profiling, harassment and assault to, in more extreme cases, slaughtering innocent citizens, these quasi-officers have unleashed terror on the nation for more than two decades.

Their victims are predominantly young Nigerians profiled on appearance—whether they drive exotic vehicles, use the latest gadgets, have their hair dyed or locked, or have piercings. In some cases, working in tech often gets conflated with financial fraud. For people who don't meet the absurd criteria, the mood of the officer can often become the difference between life and death.
