RARELY DO YOU HEAR ABOUT SWEDISH HIP HOP OVERSEAS. UNLESS YOU’RE TALKING ABOUT THE STAR.
Rebstar is no stranger to defying norms.
Growing up in Sweden’s most notorious neighborhood Rosengård as the only child of two immigrant parents, Rebstar was quickly accustomed to a multi-cultural environment. A classically trained pianist in his early teens, he obsessed over rhymes and flows by Fresh Prince, Wu-Tang and Eminem.
The result? His debut single ‘Without You’ featuring Trey Songz rose to global prominence, cementing Rebstar as one to watch.
Operating through his own boutique label Today Is Vintage, the law school dropout has since worked with the likes of Drake, Ray J, Abel Tesfaye, Boi-1da, T-Minus to name a few The result? Millions of streams, radio play worldwide and chart-topping success in Europe.
With his forthcoming high concept album GO(L)D slated for a spring 2017 release, Rebstar has his eyes on redefining hip hop. No longer is rap confined to the streets of New York or the stages of Los Angeles, and for proof no one needs to look further than Rebstar.
