Ghanaian American rapper Blackway honed his talent for memorable hooks and sophisticated rhymes by freestyling over classic cassette singles by Alliyah and Jay-Z.

This event is part of the inaugural Black Box Sessions.

Switching between Accra and New York City as a child, Ghanaian American rapper Blackway honed his talents by freestyling over classic cassette singles by Alliyah and Jay-Z and making one-take captures on old-school recording equipment. But today, he has become a leading proponent of cutting-edge studio technology that’s been picked up by the NFL and includes collaborations with Black Caviar for the Spider-Man: Into the Spiderverse soundtrack and Boi-1da on The Concept A.I.bum. His penchant for blending Afrobeat with American Hip Hop and for collaborating with talented producers results in curated beats combined with memorable hooks and sophisticated rhymes, making Blackway an artist not to be missed.

Blackway & Black Caviar - "What's Up Danger" (Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse)
