The Travis Scott and Kanye backed rapper released his debut album.
The 14 track album is a big statement from such a relative newcomer. Signed to Travis Scott’s Cactus JAck Records just last year, MUDBOY is a featureless album, carried in full by Sheck’s raw talent.
When talking about the album on Beats 1, Sheck said; “I kind of want ‘MUDBOY’ to just be only Sheck Wes and (the album) is going to talk about how I became a mudboy … a mudboy is just somebody who came from nothing.”
The album works as an autobiographical account of Sheck’s rise from being born in Harlem to Senegalese parents, to playing competitive basketball, to modelling, to music. With a pure rawness pervading throughout. Wes has an authentic personality that resonates through his loud and aggressive flow, ultimately revealing his passion for the craft.
