The Basement Gig Showcases Raw Talents With Its “Sounds From The Basement Gig” Album

Just like The PGM Club, The Basement Gig has been fully dedicated to providing a platform for gifted burgeoning acts via its monthly mini-concert series headlined by the finest of these new acts. But now, the team is taking it a step further by releasing the first volume of its new compilation series titled “Sounds From The Basement Gig.” This is in commemoration of their 3rd anniversary and the 28th edition of the mini-concert. With this new project, The Basement Gig showcases some of the most talented acts and producers rising through the ranks in the country.

A 15-track project, “SFTBG”  features new and pre-released records from some of the outstanding acts that have graced the Basement Gig stage over the past one year. The wealth and depth of raw talents across this album is almost drowning. It features appearances from known names like Goodgirl LA, Alpha Ojini, Dami Oniru, Remy Baggins, Payper Corleone, Ogranya and Dapo Tuburna. It also introduces us to fresh talents like Gbasky, Attitude, Lyn, Wilfresh and others. The A&R of the compilation tape is handled by the capable Osagie Osarenz and Stephanie Okocha.

Alpha Ojini Releases Sophomore Album “Chvmeleon”

Rapper, producer and sound engineer, Alpha Ojini has released his sophomore album “Chvmeleon” as scheduled. This is a follow-up to his debut, “Half-Price” which was released last year to rave review. It also contained standouts like ‘Ocean Boy‘, ‘Yahooboy Muzik‘ and the title-track, ‘Half Price‘.

Led by the high-spirited and cheeky ‘Pop‘, the 14-track “Chvmeleon” finds Alpha bringing along an Avengers-like squad of M.I Abaga, Ghost (SDC), Paybac, Blaqbonez, Psycho YP, Ycee, Bella Alubo, Oxlade, Goodgirl LA and Kemi Smallz.

Alpha Ojini’s ‘Pop’ Is A Sizzling Trap Cut Without The Mumble

Amidst the earsplitting noise surrounding the M.IVector beef reignited by Vector’s latest jab, ‘Judas The Rat‘, Alpha Ojini gave us the first taste of the material he has been working on since last December. Earlier today, the multitalented rapper dished out a new number titled ‘Pop‘, his first offering since his celebratory ‘Madagascar‘ freestyle. This release officially kicks off the rollout of his sophomore album, “Chvmeleon,” which is set to be released in just a matter of weeks.

Just two days ago, he announced the released date and also revealed the mouthwatering tracklist featuring appearances from M.I Abaga, Ghost of SDC, Oxlade, Blaqbonez, and more. Apparently, ‘Pop‘ is only one of five tracks off the 14-track album on which Alpha appears solo.

On this self-produced record, Alpha is simply just having fun. Confidence and enthusiasm radiate throughout the dazzling production with a dominant trap bounce, as he employs cheeky and goofy bars enwrapped in prodigal wordplay. True to its name, ‘Pop‘ is a bop to kick off your weekend, and definitely one to keep us on our toes for the arrival of the imminent tape. Remember, “Chvmeleon” drops on Friday, November 11.

Listen to the single above and let us know what you think.

 

Alpha Ojini Is Bringing Along M.I Abaga, Ghost, GoodGirl LA, Ycee, Oxlade And More On “Chvmeleon”

Even if you do not know Alpha Ojini by name, you must have come across his work one way or another. Remember that sweet-toned “Focus” voice tag you hear at the end of most of your favourite 2019 rap songs? Yeah, that’s Alpha’s tagline for his sound engineering outfit.

A bundle of talents, Alpha is also a producer and a rapper – and he’s absolutely great at both. In fact, he was recently nominated in the Best Rap Single category of the 2019 Headies for his joint with Payper Corleone, ‘Sacrifices‘, one of the highlights off Payper’s stellar tape, “Fly Gangstar From The 90s.”

And now, it’s even more good news from Alpha as he announces the release of his sophomore album, “Chvmeleon,” which has been in the works since December last year. This is would be a follow-up to his well-received debut, “Half Price” that housed standouts like ‘Ocean Boy‘, ‘Ludo‘ and the cheeky ‘Yahooboy Muzik‘.

According to his recent tweet, this new album is scheduled for release on Friday, November 1st and it boasts a mouth-watering round of features, with appearances from some of the best wordsmiths in the game at the moment. On this self-produced project, Alpha is bringing along an a-team of M.I Abaga, Ghost (SDC), Paybac, Blaqbonez, Psycho YP, Ycee, Bella Alubo, Oxlade, Goodgirl LA and Kemi Smallz.

Now, tell me you’re not excited?

Payper Corleone Shares Video For ‘Sacrifices’ With Alpha Ojini

Nigerian rapper, Payper Corleone has released the visuals for his Alpha Ojini-assisted record, ‘Sacrifices‘. This is one of the stand-out cuts off his highly collaborative project, “Fly Gangsta From The ’90s,” released to good reviews in May 2019.

Sacrifices‘ opens with a 2pac soundbite over a scintillating jazz riff that continues to run throughout the sombre boom-bap record.  The song then finds the two rappers trading some of their gloomy experiences in our crooked music industry. Despite identifying how money is imperative to visibility in the industry, they both express scepticism towards deals offered by record labels and then further urged their fellow rappers to be cautious when taking or considering offers from these capitalists.

The XYZ-directed video finds Payper, Alpha and friends in a dark and heated room vibing and gambling on chess, perhaps symbolic for the game of wits prevalent in the grimy music industry. They also pay respects to some of the greats, the late legends who have paved the way musically for them as the wall is donned with murals and photos of late legends like 2pac, Biggie, Fela and more. The video also features a cameo appearance from Paybac who also featured on the EP.
