About a year ago, Sheck Wes created one take of a freestyled track titled “Mo Bamba,” named after his NBA rookie friend. The track was uploaded to SoundCloud a few days later. It caught the attention of Travis Scott and Kanye West and was even mentioned on social media by Shaquille O’Neal, Drake, Odell Beckham Jr. and others, increasing its popularity in recent months. Now, the song is shooting up the charts and Sheck Wes recently released his first album, Mudboy.
Back in August, Drake brought Sheck Wes out during his Toronto show to perform a rendition of his hit “Mo Bamba.” Wes is also set to perform at The Forum in December for Travis Scott’s ASTROWORLD show.
Check out the lyrics and music video for the hit “Mo Bamba” below.
