Recently, Swat Matire released _Katanuka_ in collaboration with Squidkeed and Ocham. From this project, the trio talk about their street lives and how they have to be tough to survive. They try to keep it real and not give the wrong impression about rappers in Kenya.
Swat has used his raspy deep voice to good use. Not only is he considered as one of the pioneers of gengetone music genre but he is one of the greatest rappers in the country. He is a member of Ethic gengetone group but has worked on a couple of solo projects in the past years.
His tracks are always intense and the best description for the BEST gengetone artist Not one of his songs makes me feel like I dislike him, he always brings great lyrics and great performances and his radio one sessions and fire in the booth are just amazing!
Swat is still kicking down the door to the rap game having dropped Ex featuring Shekinah Karen, Whine (Take it down) with Band Beca and now Katanuka just this year. He is an inspiration to the younger generation over the past 4 years as he dominated the industry with his catchy lyrics, mad collaborations and over the top video productions. _Katanuka_ is so catchy and hard that only a character like Swat Matire could have made it.
