Blaqbonez records stellar cover to Drake’s “Lemon Pepper Freestyle”

Published

on

Blaqbonez is in his bag once again, dropping fiery stellar cover to Drake’s Lemon Pepper Freestyle off his recently released “Scary Hours 2” EP.

Blaqbonez’s album—Sex > Love—is scheduled to release anytime soon and in typical Blaqbonez fashion, he has dropped yet another freestyle or single (which most times don’t appear on the eventually released project). He first tried this with his debut album – “Bad Boy Blaq” – which turned out immaculate and ever since, “Emeka The Stallion” has employed this format on his other projects promotion route.

On Blaq’s rendition of Lemon Pepper Freestyle, he speaks on why he chose sex over love, “There’s too many booties out here to be picking sex over love / There is to much money out here to be chasing love / And you know half of these b–ches only coming ’cause I’m popping” he spits.

In classical Blaqbonez style, he made sure not to leave any stone unturned, and by that I mean him sending out subliminal shots or openly dissing his opps. This time around, Hip TV Headies Awards is put on blast but in a nice manner quite ironically. Blaqbonez raps, “Shoutout to The Headies for not giving me sh-t / felt like like it was lesson / God was teaching me sh-t / Made me kinda humble / Focused on the hustle”.

Blaqbonez’s further thanks Wizkid for consigning his hit single – BBC – while also praying his album gets as big as Made In Lagos, “By the way shoutout to Wizzy for the cosign / . . . / Pray my album gets as big as Made In Lagos”.

“The album is really close so I’mma see you later” Blaqbonez concludes his cover of Lemon Pepper Freestyle while chilling in a foamy bathtub for the video shoot.

The flow switch, rhyme patterns, punchlines, cadence, subject matter and many more made for a very good cover and listen.

Sex > Love (sex over love) album will be ready for pre-order as from Saturday, March 27th but you can listen to Blaqbonez – Lemon Pepper Freestyle released exclusively on Audiomack here:

Sarkodie and Zlatan advise broke people to leave the “VIP” on new song produced by Rexxie

Published

on

Ghana’s finest and Zanku lord reunite on Rexxie produced song, “VIP”, spitting pompous bars with catch hook broke-shaming club goers who are not on their level socially, sternly advising them to “leave the VIP . . . Go to the regular” in order to make “space for the ballers”

As expected on a song like this, braggimg about wealth and the ability to spend at will, getting any girl of his choice is what Sarkodie brings to the table while Zlatan adds his charismatic adlibs all over the song, spicing it up with the interesting hook, a much needed flavour. Rexxie does his thing too, making a fast paced instrumental to match Sarkodie’s flow.

“VIP” can be streamed below:

Falana release second EP, “Rising”

Published

on

Alternative fast-rising artiste, Falana, the Nigerian Canadian, release her second EP with the title of “Rising”, an exhibition of her brilliant pen game, soft spoken vocal chords, smooth sailing on LoFi productions and a journey of self-discovery and romantic love, presenting her stories to the average youth or Gen-Z if you’d call them that. Sir Dauda is the only featured singer, appearing on the second song, “Energy”.

Guitar strings, piano keys and mellow drumbeats are the go-to production instruments on Rising, fluidly blending them to create a “by the ocean” breezy cool vibe. On the third track, “Sweet Adeola” might be where Falana fully shows her musical prowess, telling the tale of a young Nigerian lady who has dreams of leaving the very populated Lagos state of Nigeria to chase her dreams and goals in the USA.

Most of the tracks contain electric production; Falana resurrecting retro ’90s vibes on Rising. Afrobeat is sought after on the gracious track “Joy” which sees her counting her blessings despite the challenges, living life without stress.

Laycon speaks on the importance of attaching a timeline and storyline to his projects

Published

on

Laycon’s come-up and rise to mainstream fame and success is very impressive, from being a relatively unknown personality in the entertainment industry and on social media to having one of the most dedicated fanbase on the continent, identifying themselves by his Icons moniker to having one of the top albums in the country in “. . .Shall We Begin. . .”, the rapper, singer and reality TV star keeps telling his story by means of music and his self-owned “I Am Laycon” show on ShowMax. Laycon was interviewed by Joey Akan, a writer for Afrobeats Intelligence on his journey thus far and his future goals in music and life in general.

One of the things he shed light upon is the relevance of always attaching a timeline and storyline to each of his projects, he has four projects to his name, two EPs and two albums—”Young, Gifted and Black”, “Who Is Laycon?”, “. . .Shall We Begin. . .” & “I Am Laycon”—released in chronological order. “‘Cause for me, I feel like I can put out a project and just put out songs. But for me, you have to kind of listen to this one and say ‘am I missing something? Let me try to understand what the guy said here.” Laycon says regarding putting projects out as opposed to the usual way of testing the waters by releasing several singles to know what exactly the music market demands in terms of listenership.”“Who Is Laycon?” now that we know who Laycon is. That one is like a no-brainer for me, that I had to continue that. Now that we know who Laycon is, it’s “Shall We Begin?” That’s something I’m very intentional about.” Laycon further adds.

Laycon says the initiative of having a timeline and storyline attached to his projects is a concious mental process, “I would put out a project to explain a journey so that when you see my discography eventually, you’d be able to understand that this was where this guy’s state of mind was.” he sums up in a nutshell.
