Samurai Champs is an emerging recording and performing R&B/hip-hop duo. Consisting of new-wave rapper Jeah and dark-soul/R&B singer Merv xx Gotti, the duo draw influence from their Southeast Asian heritage while taking pride in their urban-Canadian identity. Blending Jeah’s versatile rap vocal delivery with Merv xx Gotti’s emotional R&B vocals, the duo create a smooth, yet dark coalescence of modern hip-hop/R&B.
Within the past twelve months since the release of their debut EP, Crayons EP, Samurai Champs have risen as one of their province’s most prominent hip-hop/R&B artists. Recorded and mixed by former Urban Heat/Universal In-House Producer, Miguel Dey, and mastered by Colin Leonard, mastering engineer behind Bryson Tiller’s US Billboard 200 debuted #1 album, True To Self, and Migos’ US Billboard Hot 100 #1 single, “Bad and Boujee”, Crayons EP combines the contemporary Canadian hip-hop/R&B sounds of Toronto-based label, OVO Sound, with the soulful minimalism of L.A.’s future-soul collective, Soulection.
