Cross Borders Welcomes Musician, Paque

We are delighted to welcome Peter Masambuku to our network of associate artists. Peter, also known as Paque, is a Congolese-Scottish recording artist, writer, and performer based in Glasgow.

He rose to prominence in the Scottish rap scene between 2015 and 2016 following the release of his tracks “Denzel,” “Manoeuvre,” and “Summer Sixteen Freestyle.” Since then, Paque has been a driving force behind the new age hip-hop community north of the English borders.

Throughout his career, he has supported artists such as Hopsin, The Game, Slum Village, Lil Tjay, AJ Tracey, and many more. A popular musician, Paque has also headlined his own shows through prestigious Scottish promoters such as DF Concerts, JBone Collective, and 432 Presents.

Paque has been closely involved with Standing Tall Scotland, supporting the organisation in various capacities over the last two years. Most recently, this includes creating and facilitating “Standing Tall Bars,” a project geared towards young people interested in song writing and performing. The project will culminate with a performance by the young people at Refugee Festival 2024.

In the past year, Paque has collaborated with Scottish producer, DJ, and disability activist Supermann. This May, the two artists will travel together to Rotterdam, Netherlands, to perform at the international urban music festival and conference ‘New Skool Rules’. Expressing his excitement, Paque said:

“This would be a great opportunity to network with other artists from around the world, as well as connecting with industry professionals. It would also be a big milestone in my career.”

Paque is currently working on developing his sound and creating more great music for his fans to enjoy. He aims to push his sound to the next level and showcase his lyrical prowess in genre-bending releases and collaborations.
