DAP The Contract Taps Rotex And Deena Ade For ‘ Mind Control’

For one, DAP The Contract‘s CTIII Series has been highly collaborative. Save for the opener, ‘Prismcolors‘, selections on this series have all been team-ups. And in this week’s entry, DAP The Contract joins forces with Deena Ade and Rotex on a record titled ‘Mind Control‘.

This is a trap-laced urban R&B record split into two phases. In the first part, Dap and Rotex softly demand consent to alter the minds of their boy-crazy lovers. The record then transitions to a Deena Ade sultry solo that sounds like a response to their request.

The Contract Thursday (CT) series finds DAP off album mode, experimenting different ideas and exploring diverse sounds. The weekly releases which are then compiled into tapes are usually deeply fascinating as they have the multi-talented rapper swinging in and out of genres over a stretch of weekly releases.

Over a month ago, DAP the Contract was on the PGM Radio Show to discuss the string of weekly Thursday releases while also giving us a peek into two tracks off the series – ‘Prismcolors’ and ‘Bryn’s Interlude‘. At the end of the show, he also kicked bars alongside other razor-sharp wordsmiths like Payper Corleone, Idris King, D-Truce and Ycee in an impromptu freestyle session.

DAP The Contract Shares The Fourth Release Off His CTIII Series, ‘Switch’

In usual fashion, DAP The Contract has released the fourth record off his ongoing CTIII series which kicked off exactly a month ago with the single, ‘Prismcolors‘. For this week’s release, the rapper who just wrapped up his London and Paris leg of his Everybody Falls tour teams up with Elena on the new single titled ‘Switch‘.

As the title implies, ‘Switch‘ finds the rapper thinking out loud about turncoats who flip on you once you become successful. With a well-delivered melodic-rap verse over the up-tempo beat with a trap bounce, Dap has a few words for people who don’t care about you on the come up but start to show up as friends and longtime believers once they see you shine. Elena also comes through with a brilliant verse and an air-tight delivery that almost takes the shine off Dap.

DAP The Contract Taps Rozwell Fitzroy For ‘Thank God I’m Not Famous Yet’

For the third release off his ongoing CTIII series, DAP The Contract teams up with Virginia rapper,  Rozwell Fitzroy on the new record titled ‘Thank God I’m Not Famous Yet‘. The rapper kicked off the third instalment of his Contact Thursday series two weeks ago with ‘Prisimcolors‘, followed up by last week’s ‘Good Bad, Bad Good‘.

DAP the Contract was on the PGM Radio Show a couple of weeks ago to discuss the string of weekly Thursday releases while also giving us a peek into two tracks off the series – ‘Prismcolors’ and ‘Bryn’s Interlude‘. At the end of the show, he also kicked bars alongside other razor-sharp wordsmiths like Payper Corleone, Idris King, D-Truce and Ycee in an impromptu freestyle session.

DAP The Contract Releases The Second Entry Off His CTIII Series Titled ‘Good Bad Bad Good’

Last week, DAP the Contract kicked off the third instalment of his Contract Thursday series with a solo effort titled ‘Prismcolors’. And now, premiering on the PGM Club, the rapper is joining forces with Sumner Becker on the second release off the CTIII series titled ‘Good Bad Bad Good‘.

DAP the Contract was on the PGM Radio Show a couple of weeks ago to discuss the string of weekly Thursday releases while also giving us a peek into two tracks off the series – ‘Prismcolors’ and ‘Bryn’s Interlude‘. He was also kind enough to drop a fire freestyle alongside other razor-sharp wordsmiths like Payper Corleone, Idris King, D-Truce and Ycee.

The American-based rapper, who tries as much to shuffle between his home and host country is now taking time amidst law-school work to put as much music. The Contract Thursday (CT) series finds DAP off album mode, as he experiments different ideas and explores diverse sounds, swinging in and out of genres over a stretch of weekly releases.

Good Bad Bad Good‘ is a very short affair. Spanning just below two minutes, it fades off just while you’re trying to getting into it, nudging you to promptly hit the replay button. Over a wavy instrumental with a mild trap bounce, rolling hi-hats and an ambient jazzy sax solo, DAP and Becker ponder upon the strapping pull and allure of the ‘bad’ side.

Enjoy the number above and tell us what you think.

SirBastien Brings Along AYLØ, DAP the Contract, Jinmi Abduls, Eri Ife and More On New Album, ‘Mango’

This year has been such an exciting year for Nigeria’s new-gen acts. Asides having some of the biggest songs in the country fielded by   Fireboy DML, Rema and Joeboy, several other members of the new wave have been exploring sounds, experimenting new musical complexities and sharing the outcome with the world via beautiful projects all year long. Among the numerous 2019 releases include Santi‘s “Mandy and the Jungle,” Lady Donli‘s “Enjoy Your Life” – a strong contender for album of the year, Remy Baggins‘ sex tape “Hentai,” Dami Oniru‘s “Bri’s Lounge” as well as AYLØ’sDnt’Dlt.” These projects and more have helped greatly in restoring confidence about the future of the Nigerian music scene which is currently getting the world’s attention.

SirBastien is, however, the latest in the long list of new-gen acts to treat us to a solid project. Just a few days ago, this multitalented act released a new album titled “Mango” and we can’t just seem to get enough of this beautifully crafted body of work.

On this 9-track (actually eight tracks and one bonus) project, SirBastien brings along a striking cast of the new wave including DAP the Contract, Jinmi Abduls, Ilaye, Eri Ife, Keenah, JayHadADream, Bio and AYLØ.

Across these tracks, SirBastein switches smoothly between singing and rapping as he explores themes centred around love and enjoying good times with the ones we care about. A plethora of sounds, the sonically rich album is majorly self-produced with co-production credits for Saucy and Damiore.
