Ycee’s Debut Album “Ycee vs Zaheer” Is Finally Here

After years of waiting, fans finally have their hands on Ycee’s debut album “Ycee vs Zaheer.” Undeterred by Tinny Entertainment‘s attempts to sabotage this release by leaking tracks off the album, Ycee has dropped the much-teased project today, November 8. This comes after three straight weeks of releases including, ‘Dakun‘, ‘Mo Salah‘ and last week’s ‘Wahala Dey‘ that have helped revamp anticipation for the project.

Evident from its cover and title, this album is a direct face-off between his alter egos: the icy cold singing Ycee and the blazing hot rapping Zaheer. On Instagram, Ycee describes the album as a “portrayal of two sides of the same coin.”

It’s Ycee vs Zaheer because I’m my only worthy opponent” he concluded.

Ycee vs Zaheer” is a 15-track LP that features an all-star cast of Davido, Phyno, Niniola, M.S Banks and former labelmate, Dapo Tuburna. Ycee also works with a long list of producers for this album including Syn X, Krizbeats, KO, Willis Give Dem, Jay Popping, Fanatiz, BeatsByKarma, Buzzing Producer, Twoseven, Elmore, J.Bids, Ballartosh and longtime collaborator, Adey.

Listen To Zamir’s New Jam, ‘Mind’ Featuring PsychoYP

Just a few months after a fiery team-up with Ycee on ‘Anti‘, Zamir has released his third single of the year, titled ‘Mind‘. For this new record, he joins forces with PsychoYP who also has his new project “YPSZN 2” scheduled for release in a couple of days.

This new single is produced by Tochi Bedford, who was also the culprit on the boards for the ominous and hard-hitting ‘Anti‘. This new record finds trap-Zamir at his finest as he takes us on a brief tour of his inner sanctum. PsychoYP on his part wraps the record with a killer verse enwrapped a polished flow and an airtight delivery.

Enjoy the record here and tell us what you think.

 

Ycee Is In Full Loverboy Mode On ‘Wahala Dey’

Ycee has released the third and final single leading to the release of his highly anticipated debut album, “Ycee vs Zaheer.” Coming just a week after ‘Mo Salah‘, Ycee is appearing yet solo on this new single, ‘Wahala Dey‘.

This single is produced by a competent duo of Ballartosh and J.Bids as they lay down a sultry afro-pop record for Ycee to shine on. And of course, the man of the moment also doesn’t disappoint. Coming through with melodic emotive bars, he is in full loverboy mode, promising his sweetheart sunshine and rainbows in their romance. He also spices the record with a cheeky but infectious hook that yearns for bigger things.

The 15-track album is scheduled for release next Friday, November 8 and it features appearances from an all-star cast of Davido, Phyno, Niniola, M.S Banks and former labelmate, Dapo Tuburna.

Enjoy ‘Wahala Dey‘ above and let us know what you think.

Listen To Ycee’s New Single, ‘Mo Salah’

Ycee has released the second single off his soon-to-be-released debut album “Ycee vs Zaheer,” scheduled for release on Friday, November 8. This new single which is also the eighth track on the album titled ‘Mo Salah‘ is a follow-up to the album’s lead single ‘Dakun‘ which was released last week.

This record, titled after the after African best player and top EPL scorer, Mohammed Salah is produced by Buzzin Producer. And on the hard-hitting beat with a trippy trap bounce, a relaxed and assertive Ycee repeatedly compares himself to the Liverpool striker over snarky punchlines and chest-thumping affirmations. With this track, one thing is evident: Ycee has got this melodic rap thing on lock.

Remember that the coming album also features appearances from an all-star cast of DavidoPhynoNiniolaM.S Banks and former labelmate, Dapo Tuburna.

Ycee Comes Through With His Sultry Melodic Rap On ‘Dakun’

Just a few days after announcing the release of his debut album “Ycee vs Zaheer,” Ycee has unveiled the first single off the long-awaited LP, titled ‘Dakun‘.

Produced by Krizbeatz, ‘Dakun‘ is a midtempo Afropop record that finds Ycee dolling out complementary melodic raps for his love interest. He promises to love her right and therefore pleads with her to succumb to his advances.

It, however, seems like Ycee’s label troubles arent just over yet as his former label, Tinny Entertainment, leaked some of the records off the coming album to sabotage its release. But Ycee looked unmoved as he goes ahead with the rollout of the album like nothing even happened.

Remember that “Ycee vs Zaheer” which is now available for pre-order officially drops on Friday, November 8.

Ycee Has Davido, Niniola, Phyno, M.S Banks And Dapo Tuburna Colliding With Him On “Ycee vs Zaheer”

Ycee has announced the release of his much-teased and highly anticipated debut album, “Ycee Vs Zaheer.” The album which would be his first post-Tinny Entertainment project is scheduled for release on Friday, November 8 with its lead single ‘Dakun‘ coming out tomorrow.

The rapper who also doubles as a singer shared the album cover and the tracklist that includes appearances from an all-star cast of Davido, Phyno, Niniola, M.S Banks and former labelmate, Dapo Tuburna.

As the name implies, this album finds the ANBT boss in a battle against self, as his rap persona and his pop-leaning side tug it out for dominance across the 15-track album.

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?

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.

Dapo Tuburna, PsychoYP and Ycee Synergize On ‘Penthouse’

In the wake of his exit from Tinny Entertainment, Dapo Tuburna reminded us of his talents with his jubilant 3-track EP “Gingo Vibes” which was released to good reviews. And now, the singer is taking it further as he reunites with his former label mate, Ycee and PsychoYP, the Abuja-based rapper on a new record ‘Penthouse‘.

Produced by Quebeat, ‘Penthouse‘ is trap record that features impressive performances from the trio and a catchy hook. It finds the acts having the best of times in their chill-spot, the penthouse. It also features some underlining Zlatan ad-libs.

Enjoy ‘Penthouse‘ above.
