It’s safe to say that Camp Mulla, aka 2-5 flow has taken Nairobi by storm.
With a still growing fanbase in Kenya and a compilation of some of the sickest singles and remixes, Camp Mulla are giving other musicians a run for their money. Even though independent since 2009, the group has been natured under Sub-Sahara records and Ulopa Ngoma, which gives them an even bigger head start. Some say its the theme of real upcoming artists, we just think its moving fast. The fact that artists are young and professional proves their brilliance and potential to expand. Their title on its own screams incredibility, talent and downright swag.
It’s not hard to say whether they’ll survive in this colossal industry we call music – when they step on the scene, competition disarrays. They are the competition. From the lyrically gifted Taio Tripper to the intense vocals of Miss Karun, Camp Mulla is paving the way for the rest of Nairobi’s young stars. They’re an inspiration and an icon to the many striving young musicians all over Kenya.
But what is it that makes their mode so authentic, sensational and without question, superb?
Contrasting from others, their compositions are fresh and bring a whole new meaning and denotation to the word hip-hop. Their lyrics have significance and immeasurable sentiment; practically drawing you in like a magnet and before you know it you’re hooked faster than you can say “2-5 flow”. As cliché as it may be, they’ve taken the best of rap, and combined it with RnB to create magic.
No one can argue that they were born for this Industry; the group even goes on to say they are “Born and Raised” and Indeed, they are ‘’Born and Paid’’.
