We’re sort of partial to Flavour’s massive collaboration with voguish rappers Phyno and M.I., but there are four other really good songs to download below. Get them all.
1. Ajebutter22 — Swagu
Stepping away from his mid-tempo signature style, feel-good rapper Ajebutter22 experiments with a new, more electronic sound. Glitch pop.
2. Criss Waddle — Real Bad Man (Feat. Sarkodie & Mugeez)
Refuse To Be Broke signee Criss Waddle hooks up with labelmate Mugeez and inescapable lyrical heavyweight Sarkodie for a potent all-Ghanaian three-way. Too many words and then some.
3. Fresh L — Ova Here (Feat. Dotstar)
Lagos hip hop collective DRB-Lasgidi has been quiet for a while with its members—Boj, Fresh L and TeeZee—seemingly charting independent courses in their music careers. And Fresh L’s official first single, a club-ready hookup with fledgling UK rapper Dotstar, seemingly affirms the group’s untogetherness… for now.
4. Dynamyt — Jekomo
Fresh-faced singer Dynamyt leaves the mellow ambiance of his barely two-week old single I Remember (which we really like) for a more upbeat and commercial sonic environment engineered by hit maker Sossick. Chalk it up to popular demand.
5. Flavour — Wiser (Feat. Phyno & M.I.)
Off his new album, Thankful, the inimitable Flavour turns down in a great way with two of Nigeria’s most acclaimed rappers on an alternative ballad that thrives on its soulful instrumental and a brilliant mix of Igbo and English lyricism. About M.I.’s verse? Listen already.
