The 63rd Grammys set to hold on January 31st have been reportedly postponed due to the surge in Covid-19 cases and concerns regarding the deadly pandemic as per Rolling Stone.

The 2021 Grammy Awards will still be held at Staples Center, Los Angeles and Trevor Noah is still set to be host but the rumoured new date seems to be around March 2021 but no official statement has been put out by Recording Academy yet regarding this news. It is still a developing story.

Beyoncé is the most nominated artiste for this year’s edition of the Grammys with 9 nominations while Taylor Swift, Roddy Ricch and Dua Lipa get 6 each.

Nigerian acts in Burna Boy and WizKid also have a nomination each; Burna Boy is seen as early favourite to snatch the Best Global Award for his “Twice As Tall” album and bring it home while Wizkid received his nod via “Black Skin Girls” with Beyoncé, Blue IVY and SAINt JHN, contending for Best Music Video.

A-Q, Blaqbonez, Loose Kaynon and M.I Abaga join forces for collaborative project “BEHOLD THE LAMB”

Hip-Hop is still in vogue! Chocolate City’s comrades joined forces in setting matters right on the joint album—“BEHOLD THE LAMB”.

Chocolate City artistes M.I Abaga, Blaqbonez and Loose Kaynon and affiliate A-Q who have come together on numerous occasions, always featuring one another on songs and projects, have finally decided to set matters right, coming together on the joint album, BEHOLD THE LAMB, a Hip-Hop/Rap project.

LAMB is an acronym for Loose Kaynon, A-Q, M.I Abaga and Blaqbonez using the initialism method; all four rappers have appeared on three cyphers namely: Martel Cypher 2019, Martel Cypher 2 (2020) and LAMB Cypher 3.0 – The Last Cypher (2021, which also coincides as the last track on BEHOLD THE LAMB).

BEHOLD THE LAMB is a collaborative album by Chocolate City and Cordless in partnership with Boomplay, hence it made its debut on the streaming platform a day before the general availability on all DSPs on July 6. Asides from the four amazingly talented rappers who co-own the project, Chike (Snapchat vs Facebook), PsychoYP (Famous Sh*T), Ko-jo Cue (Receipts), Bien & Khaligraph Jones (Plus 254) all feature on the album.

Tracklist for BEHOLD THE LAMB

The majority of the production was handled by late beat maker BeatsByJayy and the album—BEHOLD THE LAMB—consists of 10 tracks enough to satisfy the hunger of Hip-Hop lovers in Nigeria and abroad as they have been discussions in the country about the seemingly fading state of rap in Nigeria but with A-Q, Loose Kaynon and M.I Abaga delivering bars-on-bars over flows-on-flows aided by Blaqbonez’s versatility in singing and rapping and the topics touched on, it is safe to say rap is very much still in vogue in the country.
