UK born, Singapore based emcee REQ announces his debut EP. SLEEPING GIANT, released on the 02nd June and drops his new single LAZY
Introducing enigmatic rapper and songwriter REQ. Born in Birkenhead, England and currently residing in the tropical city island of Singapore, REQ has been steadily making his move from a behind-the-scenes role to the foreground of the music industry.
His debut EP ‘Sleeping Giant’ is due to be released this summer. Fusing both influences of sounds from his Asian roots and his upbringing in the ‘Grime’ culture of the United Kingdom, this young MC looks set to bring his cross culture soudn and attitude to the masses.
From the young age of 15, he has tried his hand in a number of fields, from spoken word to an undefeated streak in battle rap that lasted for nearly 2 years. Since then, he has concentrated on more studio work, with songwriting credits on songs by notable Filipino artists such as Rayver Cruz and Yeng Constantino.
Now with the spread of the British grime culture and the acceptance of the British accent within the genre of Hip Hop finally being digested worldwide, REQ’s debut EP could not be near completion at a more suitable time. With a unique sound and story to tell, the Singapore-based REQ has all the tools to compliment and add a spark to a growing industry, starting with his first single from the EP ‘Lazy’.
