Nairobi-based Kenyan rapper Boutross‘ forthcoming double-CD mixtape, 6ixviewsii8k, has been scheduled for a November 8 release. The project’s corresponding launch party will go down the next day, 9th Nov, at Nairobi’s Deepwest Lounge, with artists such as Karun, Nviiri The Storyteller, TNT, EA Wave, Xenia Manasseh, Barak Jacuzzi, among others, slated to grace the stage. 6ixviewsii8k is the latest compilation project from the fast-rising musician, who identifies himself prominently with the shrap movement, a sub-genre of rap emerging out of Nairobi.
“I am bringing together my friends in music and some of your favorite Kenyan artists who I have also collaborated with on the mixtape for the event. I can’t wait to see all my fans at the launch, we have prepared a musical performance like no other.”Boutross says about the launch concert
Being a member of Homeboyz Radio’s 2015 Jumpoff Freshmen class, Boutross has been experiencing a meteoric rise. This tape will help him further etch his name within the country’s urban music scene.
