Alongside Blaqbonez, one of the big winners in the ‘Best Rapper In Africa‘ conversation is Payper Corleone. His blunt and brutal response to Blaq’s audacious claims on ‘Everybody Dies‘ featuring Raezy Winston, and his knockout-punch, ‘Sacrificial Lamb‘, placed him on the radar of many as a rapper to look out for. And though many were just introduced to his talents these past few weeks, the wordsmith has been around for a minute and he has badges to show for it.
Since his debut mixtape, “BARS 1” released in 2014, Payper has been relentless with his releases, particularly since “Bars 2: Guilty as Charged” released in 2017. In the last three years, the rapper has dropped five stellar projects, the latest of which is his highly collaborative EP titled “Fly Gangsta From The 90s” released in May this year. This project houses ‘Sacrifices’, a standout cut which just had its gloomy video released just two days ago.
The quality of the project earned him a spot in Pulse NG‘s top 10 hottest rappers of 2019 (so far) list, describing the rapper as “one of the fast-rising under lords of street rap in Nigeria.” Ten tracks long, the EP features appearances from some of the most gisted rappers rising through the ranks including Alpha Ojini, Erigga, Paybac, Boogey, Abstraktt, Phlowetry and Eniggy.
