reminisce asalamalekun
Man! This joint is serious on a whole new level. First thoughts on the first listen of this new joint, Asalamelekun (Peace Be Onto You) by Reminisce. He really breaks in 2016 on a very high note (we'll ignore Angelina that dropped earlier).First thing that hits you on this joint is...
The rising expectations that came with the release of MI’s third free mixtape - the first ever in the game, is the dream of both an unsigned hype and an upcoming artist. It’s a feat to be emulated and respected across many levels. MI’s versatility and consistency marks him...
After all the fuss surrounding the introduction of Paul Okoye's first female artist Lucy, and the "package" she introduced herself in, the expectations for her debut records were set pretty high. So whenI finally got to listen to the record, I was... well... just read.Now the song was set...
Kcee – Bureau De Changer
Sigh! *takes a moment to think to self*. Ok let's continue.... I gave myself a week to try to ingest and digest this new song from Kcee but I don't think I've fully grasped or understood what it's all about. Kcee has had a good number of mega hits, (Pull...

You can say that although 2baba (2face) is a legend in the game, he's been missing a solid hit for the best part of a year. You know how it is when someone is a legend, you don't want to write them off quite yet, and for good reason.In...
Skales, Young D and South African rapper, Da Les teamed up to drop a new joint, Gum Body. Now on the surface you might not think it's the sexiest lineup, but once you hit play the song hits you with something fresh almost instantly.Even though I can’t claim to have heard a lot...
You knew I wouldn't pass the chance to review this new song from Reekado Banks. Not with all the drama from the headies and all, and add the fact that Lil Kesh dropped his single not too long ago. Yep, Oluwa Ni from Reekado Banks was definitely on our...
saeon de be cypher
Saeon dropped the cypher version of her single De Be, and reminded everyone in Nigerian hip-hop how it should be done. Featuring an all star cast of A.T, Poe, Eva, Ozone, Tesh Carter and Ycee, this version of De Be is what any real hip-hop fan would love.The production...
Ahhh! Barely a week after big big Next Rated drama that was centered around him, Lil Kesh dropped a new joint, Ibile (translate to Local/Native in Yoruba) almost as a way to remind his fans that he probably deserved that Next Rated Award.The initial melody of the song sounds...
Iyanya and D'Tunes reunited after not working together for a couple of years and released 2 singles, Nothing Mega and Sukumma. In today's review though, we'll be hitting up the first of the pair, Nothing Mega.The first thing that struck me about this tune on first listen was the...
Seyi Shay is a very unique artist in the Nigerian music industry, and that has been a good thing most times, other times not so great. Before her hit single, Murda, last year, the name Seyi Shay was very well known but not many could say why they knew...
Adekunle Gold struck gold twice this year already with his singles, Sade, and Orente, and was looking to hit the trifecta before the end of 2015, and did just that with the new single, Pick Up.The first thing that struck me about this song is that it's lively from...
falz stores that touch review
Falz the badt guy had his single, Karashika buzzing for most of the year, carrying his momentum from 2014 well into 2015. Once word hit that he was releasing an album this year, everyone was curios to see just what Falz would have up his sleeves for his sophomore...
wizkid baba nla
WizKid dropped this joint, Baba Nla, last week to the joy of a lot of fans. It had been a minute since he released an official single so the anticipation was high.The first thing that strikes about this song is the extra smooth beat. Legendury Beatz is really living...
Now that we know that Davido wont be dropping an album this year, we know he's trying to wrap up the year with something solid to carry his buzz well into 2016. So. Cue in The Money featuring Olamide.Produced by Kid Dominant, The Money is very mellow, smooth, and...
