Reading, PA based emcee EKKO has established himself on the music landscape over the last couple of years with the boundless energy and electrifying verve of his stirring mix of gritty, lyrical, thought-provoking Hip Hop anthems. From breakthrough collaborations with Joell Ortiz and Gillie Da Kid, to his debut EP Ekksposure, EKKo’s unmistakable delivery, dynamic lyrical prowess and effervescent on-stage persona have marked him as one of the most distinctive artists on the contemporary music scene.
Ekko has cultivated a loyal following with his unique flow and incredible story telling ability. In 2012 he won the coveted Underground Music Award for “Best Male Rapper.” Additionally he has been interviewed on Shade 45 Sirius/XM and Thisis50 radio. Moreover, Ekko’s music is available on AMI Jukebox Machines nationwide. Equally important, he has a licensing deal with the #1 Urban sneaker and clothing retail store in the U.S. called “VILLA” formally known as “SneakerVilla” and Ekko’s clothing line RespectDaGrind is available online and in stores.
His last single “Eryday” featuring Gillie Da Kid received heavy spins on Philly’s Power99 mixshows. Ekko’s most recent single is a hard hitting track entitled “WGTMD (Who Gon Tell Me Different)” produced by FranchiseBeats. It is one of the first songs off of Ekko’s EP “Ekksposure,” which set to drop 9/27/15. The bold track highlights his irrepressible confidence and supreme wordplay.
