So it’s Sunday people and even though this comes a bit late in the day it’s better late then never yea? This week we will be straying away from all the “popular” peeps and “trends” and reviewing songs from upcoming acts, YC and Saeon.
YC – Pedophile In Power
I first heard of YC from his joint Drum with W4 just over a week ago, and in all honesty with all the new music that comes out I didn’t pay too much attention to him. I really should’ve. And now I am.
His new joint, Pedophile In Power, takes a turn from the all the beef that has been going on this week, and addresses real issues that plague our society. The song combines potent socially conscious lyrics with snippets of interviews from various people in power and news reporters who have asked and answered questions concerning issues in Nigeria. Most recently, Child Not Bride issue with Senator Yerima.
Overall the purpose of the song was served, and executed down right to the T. Clear lyrics, easy beat and overall great composition. “Next thing they’ll try to wife a child that isnt born yet.”
Saeon – Bust My Brain ft. General Pype
Saeon has been in the game for a minute, and her songs have come off with mixed reviews. Some potential hits, and others just down right misses. Today’s joint however has the potential to do well commercially.
Getting Gospel On De Beatz already gets you half the points you’ll need to make a hit track. Saeon and General Pype did well to go with the beat and not over do things or ruin the groove. The reggae vibe worked well, and even though it was a bit of a new adventure for Saeon it worked out pretty well.
Only down side of the tune, is that it could get a bit monotonous mid way through the song, but it’s still a solid effort and you just never know with these things. At a hype moment the tune will do well to get you pumped up to start off a friday night.
