Garey Godson drops his 4th studio project Lucid Thoughts. The 6 track EP delivers a smooth blend of Afrofusion tunes as well as RnB and Trap-Drill elements. The opening track Shinning Black reaffirms negritude ideas with a short poem by 7-year-old Nylah performed at a Black Lives Matter protest in the UK.
The following track Macking Things is a laid back summer tune which paints pictures of a youngster who expresses a rather free form of relationships and encounters. Interestingly this record is placed before Tender which is an alluring tune hinged on rather sensual lyrics and a yearning for romance. This colorful contrast is evident in the lyrical approach and instrumentation.
This leads us to More Life which features the singer David Meli. The smooth delivery by Meli complimented by Godsons deep rap vocals creates a perfect blend. Next, comes a conscious drill infused number with Nigerian US based rapper and producer, DAP The Contract on Fast Lane. He rounds off the EP with Kobain named after pop icon and Nirvana lead singer. He features Austrian-Nigerian rapper Law on this track. As mentioned by Garey
“Law and I wrote Kobain during the heat of the End Sars protest in Nigeria and the murder of George Flyod in the US”.
