Bio

Having begun his solo career by performing at 2 Worlds Festival 2018 (headlined by Baker Boy), and booking a performance at Rainbow Serpent Music Festival 2019, Emkew’s entrées run longer than a Smorgy’s buffet sesh.

Emkew is the rap moniker of Mashood Qureshi, a musician whose journey into rap began later than most. Since performing live compositions of Kanye West songs on Hanoi’s music scene in 2013, Emkew returned home to wow packed crowds with Kendrick Lamar and Ab-Soul classics at former Melbourne institution, Hip Hop Karaoke. In 2015 he linked up with Templestowe outfit Hillhouse Studios and began writing originals, including the limited-release single Kingdom, which is slated for re-release in the coming weeks. It was only in July of this year that Emkew debuted his original material to The Penny Black’s vaunted open mic.

A short 4 months later, Emkew is staring down a huge summer to start 2019. His upcoming release schedule includes more personal songs like Level Up (with production by Motley), Surfboard, and Freezer: a double-down on the thread that begins unravelling on Rap Cannibal. His upcoming performances range from an intimate studio launch to the Playground Stage at Rainbow Serpent. All of this leads up to the cherry on top, an EP release in March next year. The coming months are sure to be a feast for anyone following Emkew.
