One of Nigeria’s gifted wordsmiths, Paybac has finally made good on his promise by releasing his much-teased sophomore solo album, “Cult!” This comes two years after he walked us through the dark corridors of his genius mind on his well-received debut, “The Biggest Tree” in 2018. “Cult” would also be Paybac’s first project since he rejoined forces with fellow rap luminary, Boogey to release one of Nigeria’s most celebrated rap album of 2019, “Alternate Ending.”
This new album contains 15 tracks including pre-released singles like ‘Activ8’ and ‘Boy Band’. Across the album, Paybac brings along a host of gifted burgeoning acts like BarelyAnyHook, Jazzz, Viveeyan, Pizzo, BumniAfrica, RIA Sean and the self-acclaimed best rapper in Africa, Blaqbonez.
Paybac also works with a number of hands for the production of the album, including Pro-Beats and L3arn who produced four and three tracks respectively on the album. Other producers credited on “Cult!” include Vandross, Soulphoria, Golddrummachine, Monkey Beats, Angelo, Sizzle Pro and Stoute Louis.
The engineering of the album is entirely handled by a capable trio of Seanstan, Sizzle Pro and Jon Jnr for Von2 Studios.
Just a couple of days ago, Paybac revamped hype for the coming project with a loosie, ‘Hey Jude’ dedicated to one of the most revered Nigerian rappers, M.I Abaga.
