Kofi on Going From Volleyball to Rapping, Protecting Afrobeats, and His New Album ‘Why Not?’

Kofi’s introspection over the last three years has fueled the flames of his second album, Why Not? releasing May 20th on Red Bull Records. The Toronto rapper, singer, and producer spent the final year as a professional volleyball player in his Los Angeles dorm room questioning the limitations others have placed on him yet meticulously crafting his conflicting thoughts into 12 tracks. “All my life, I’ve been told what I couldn’t do—you can’t be an athlete and a musician. You can’t be a producer and an artist. You can’t be a singer and a rapper. You can’t have a thriving career and a relationship. This album is me questioning those voices and proof that I am going to do what I want to do because it is me,” Kofi shares in a press release.
