Just a few months after his message-driven ‘Rappers‘, Uzikwendu who prides himself as Nigeria’s fastest rapper is back with an Irockclassic-produced record titled ‘Lyrical Cardio‘. Making good of his promise of more music this year after a brief self-imposed hiatus, Uzi kicked things off this year with his 10-episode Friday Rap Day Series, followed by two impressive rap singles. And this new release featuring M.I Abaga is a worthy follow-up to the record in which a war-ready Uzikwendu rains hailstorm on rappers.
As the title implies, ‘Lyrical Cardio‘ finds both rappers flexing their lyrical prowess, speed and technical ability. Uzi opens the record, kicking things off immediately with a raw and relentless verse. M.I then steps into Uzi’s world in the next verse and gives him a run for his money, outpouring self-appraisal bars enwrapped in a bullish delivery. The song peaks in the third and last verse with Uzi dishing out his rapid-fire flows at a breakneck speed over anthemic chants.
