D-Truce, BarelyAnyHook & Bigfoot Team Up On ‘Mango’

It’s always a beautiful thing when several individually brilliant artists join forces to create something even more beautiful. D-Truce, BarelyAnyHook and Bigfoot have joined forces for a very juicy record, suitably titled ‘Mango’. This record was originally scheduled for release on Friday, June 4, but was put off till today in solidarity with the stand against rape and violence.

Enjoy the single above.

BarelyAnyHook Teams Up With DJ Klem On ‘Look At Your Baby’

Just a few days after releasing his “Nna, Jide” EP which saw him making covers of a few Jidenna records, BarelyAnyHook is back with a new single. For this new offering titled ‘Look At Your Baby’, he teams up with esteemed producer, DJ Klem. Last year, BarelyAnyHook also teamed up with the multi-talented producer Bigfootinyourface to release their joint EP, “Barely Big Enough.”

This new single finds the rapper flexing his vocal muscles over the soft and smooth instrumentally-rich DJ Klem production. Across the record, his gift as a songwriter is on full display as he appreciates and adulates his mother. She has over the years made several countless sacrifices just to see him grow to the man she always wanted him to be. And now, this is the time for her to sit back and enjoy the fruits of her labour. They’ve been through so much together and all he wants right now is for her to fully soak herself in the moment and dance in celebration to his music.

Listen to the beautiful song and let us know what you think.

BarelyAnyHook Releases New 5-Track EP, “Nna, Jide”

Remember in 2017 when BarelyAnyHook dropped a sizzling freestyle for Nigerian-American rapper Jidenna when the latter was promoting “The Chief” in Lagos? The burgeoning rapper has since swiftly positioned himself as one of the most creative and eccentric wordsmiths in the country. Although he hasn’t attained mainstream popularity just yet, BarelyAnyHook is fast developing a cult following via his near-ceaseless releases.

Anyone that has been following the rapper’s journey for a minute must have noticed his affinity for Jidenna’s music. Asides the viral freestyle video, he has also gone one to cover standout selections off Jidenna’s sturdy discography. Now, BarleyAnyHook has compiled these covers into an EP he calls “NNA, JIDE.” This project, dedicated to the Grammy-nominated rapper contains just five tracks with a total runtime of 16 minutes.

This is BarleyAnyHook’s first body of work since his 2019 collaborative “Barely Big Enough” EP with respected producer and DJ, Bigfootinyourface.

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

D-Truce Celebrates Album Anniversary With ‘Conversations’ Video

In celebration of the first anniversary of his debut album “2 Birds 1 Stone,” Nigerian rapper, D-Truce has released the first video off the project. This is a video Truce describes as the “most creative music video ever made by a Nigerian.” And a quick look into it proves that that’s not too far from the truth.  

Shot by Agbawo Nesta for Nestastudios, the team turns a creative block into brilliance crafting the video from a random collection of boomerangs. The creative twist is reminiscent of Ryan Staake’s finesse in the video for Young Thug’s ‘Wyclef Jean’. 

The video also features appearances from some of Nigeria’s most gifted young acts like BarelyAnyHook, Remy Baggins, Tems and Dami Oniru

Enjoy ‘Conversations’ below.

 

BarelyAnyHook And Bigfoot Release Joint EP “Barely Big Enough”

Bigfootinyourface has had a very busy year. Despite juggling his music with his day job, the multi-talented producer has been steady with his releases all year long. Earlier this year, he teamed up with KEL on her first project in 10 years, “Vita.Amare.Libidine“, and executive produced Pasha‘s sophomore EP, “Love Sex Loud.” He also took upon a ten-week long series tagged the “Downtempo Friday” series in which he teamed up with several gifted acts across a string of weekly releases.

And now, he has joined forces with one of the most talented acts rising through the ranks, BarelyAnyHook, to release a new EP titled “Barely Big Enough.” This project is a brief affair containing just four tracks all performed by BarelyAnyHook while Bigfoot handles the entire production and engineering of the project. Across the project, the pair explore several genres including High-life/hip-hop, salsa noir, blues bounce and what they describe as Fela n’ B.

Last week, the PGM Radio Show hosted a listening session for the EP, where the pair took us through the creative process behind the production of the project. Interestingly, they revealed that the four songs were all produced in just one night.

They also disclosed that the tracklisting of the EP isn’t set in stone, suggesting that listeners should try to shuffle up the project as every variant listening order brings along a distinct feeling.

The PGM Club highly recommends this project. Enjoy.

Sute Iwar Joins Forces With BarelyAnyHook In ‘Heartless’

Fresh off the release of the visuals to ‘Don’t Wake Up‘, the Abuja-based multitalented act, Sute Iwar has teamed up with prolific rapper, BarleyAnyHook for his new number, ‘Heartless’. The record is produced by Le Mav with additional production by Sute Iwar himself.

Don’t Wait Up‘ officially kicked off the rollout of Sute’s upcoming project titled “Paradise” and ‘Heartless’ seems to be the second single off the album – a solid follow up to the love number which got an elegantly befitting video.

On this new record, Sute Iwar shows off much of his singing side as he croons about the aftermath of a relationship with a self-centred lover. Barleyanyhook comes through with a fire verse cloaked in a brilliant delivery that gives the record a strutting vibrancy.

Enjoy the single above.

BarelyAnyHook Is On Full G.R.R Martin Mode On His ‘Dangote’ Cover Titled ‘Tempest’

In celebration of his 27th birthday, burgeoning rapper, BarelyAnyHook has released what he refers to as a ‘party pack’, a cover of Burna Boy‘s 2019 smash, ‘Dangote‘. This is a hookless cover where BarelyAnyHook brilliantly showcases his lyricism and an airtight delivery over the laidback instrumental of the raving hustler’s anthem.

The introspective verse, replete with Game Of Thrones references possesses a soulful realness to it. As he touches on his week-old GidiFest performance and metaphorically reflects on his artistry as well as some of the lessons learnt over the years. He also reminds us of his forthcoming “Barely.Big.Enough” project which is scheduled for release in “a month and some change“.

As he revealed on Twitter, this might just be the first instalment in a series of Game Of Thrones-themed releases scheduled for May. However, you can enjoy this freestyle alongside his other singles like ‘Line Up‘, ‘Vibrations Clearly‘ and ‘Lava Lamp‘ with Sute.

Happy belated birthday to Johnny Seabass from the PGM Club. More Life!
