Such is the world of Chukwuemeka Nnamdi Onyejekwe. His Nigerian parents and a sh#tload of others gave him the side eye for leaving the lofty comfort of Weil, Gotshal & Manges, LLP, one of the world’s most prestigious firms, to pick up a mic. Mekka has had songs licensed by ESPN and has gotten some attention for his music, most recently by MTVU for his latest song “Dirty.” He sat with Planet Ill & IllSide Radio to talk family, Black identity, cultural expectations and much more. Get hip.
