Interlude 3 – Wavy the Creator x Zamir

Since H.I.G.H, Wavy the Creator has put out a series of interludes – projects that are softer and more intimate than her usual art.

The singer’s mates single and third interlude, aptly named Interlude 3 produced by Genio Bambino features rapper Zamir.

Wavy recently released the official video for this interlude via her VERY RARE VIBES channel on YouTube. The video was directed by camera-bender TSE and SAN V.

An impressive thing about this video (and Wavy’s general visual expression) is how clearly you can see that she is the centerpiece of the art. TSE’s command of colour is seen in the video but you can easily see how heavily Wavy herself is inspiration for the video.

Listen To Wavy’s ‘Interlude 3’

We’ve been schooled to expect WavyTheCreator’s soothing sound; even though you’re never truly prepared for it, but have we ever heard a calm Zamir?

On Wavy’s latest Interlude 3 produced by the doctor Genio Bambino, the rapper’s vocals are almost husky as the pair weave a sexy interaction.

This Zamir & Kida Kudz Link Up Is Dangerous

 

We won’t be forgetting how dangerous Zamir is anytime soon. Since the release of the visuals for his track Hate (featuring Esojay Luciano), Zamir has not hesitated to remind us how hard he goes.

The rapper teams up with UK-based Kida Kudz on his latest Dangerous. The DOZ-produced joint (mixed and mastered by GMK) is another reminder of why nobody messes with Zamir and we love it.

 

 

Zamir Is Out With FAST

After his Hate video, Zamir is out with his first single of 2018 FAST. 

The rapper is definitely living his best Hip-Hop life with this Hvrry-produced joint and through all the pressure, King Zamir is not about to buckle under any kind of pressure. Zamir talks about all the hard work he’s put into his craft so far and how much more fire he’s bringing to the game.

A rare. Debut – Odunsi’s First Album

Pulling off a debut project that will make history books is hard. Making music that is inter-generational is even harder, but Odunsi has done it. The singer’s debut album premiered on the PGM Live radio show last Wednesday, an amazing private listening party on Thursday and the official public release on all platforms finally came through on Friday.

rare. is Odunsi’s first debut and it’s taken this vanguard two years to come through with this project. While some fans were mad that it’s taken their fave so long to put out a compilation, one listen to this superstar quality debut and you’ll understand why. The project samples the Funk/Disco sounds of the 70s/80s and some spins on 90s Hip-Hop and this has to be the best spin on the sounds produced this year and with such a superb blend of sound, you can’t really hate Odunsi’s music. With rare. we see Odunsi take sole charge of his brand aesthetic, adding to the redefinition of what it is to be an African artist in this age.

rare. is successfully inter-generational and will go down in history as one of the best things to happen to Nigerian music since Fela

 

The album boasts features from mainstream and New School heavyweights: Runtown, Davido, Nasty C, Zamir, Tay Iwar, Lady Donli, Santi, Duendita, Amaarae, Hamzaa, Solis and 234Jaydaa. All the tracks on rare. are produced by Odunsi (save for Alté Cruise which was produced by Yinoluu, Take Me There produced by Le Mav and Outcast produced by Genio Bambino) with help from GMK, DJ Yin, Nosapollo, and Davido.

We waited two years to receive this piece of heaven and it should not by any means be squandered. Listen to rare. here.

 

Zamir Ain’t Playing Around – Hate

 If we don’t know Zamir (of L.O.S), we know his hardcore Hip-hop/Rap music. In January, the artist dropped his debut album XXIII and today, King Zamir gave us the visuals for the track packing the heaviest punches Hate (featuring Esojay Luciano).

The video, directed by Seun Opabisi emphasizes Zamir’s menacing, no-nonsense stance in collecting all debts with pretty graphic imagery: the rapper’s ripped chest on display (at one point, splattered with blood) walking through a slaughterhouse, threatening a character we assume to be a debtor and a burning corpse.

We know Zamir is not here to play.

Genio Bambino drops the (EP) Virtuoso

This may come as a late post, but that is also because we couldn’t fully understand the meaning & purpose of the project Virtuoso.

So we asked a few internal questions; Does the project sound good? Hell yeah!

Does it sound fresh? Hell yeah!

So, we reached out to Genio and asked him a few questions;

What is the purpose of this album?

“The purpose of the album is basically to show how skilled and diverse I am, because on this project I sang, rapped, wrote, produced, mixed and mastered the whole project.”

Why did you put it out now?

“I decided to put it out now because I felt it was the right time to come out as Genio Bambino because a lot of people don’t know I have changed my name and have not noticed the growth and changes I have been through.”

What inspired the collaborations?

“Neo Africa inspired the features. All the people I featured are my friends and I wanted to show how dope they are and I also wanted to showcase Nigerian underground at the moment.”

Who is Genio Bambino?

“Genio Bambino is the youngest monster boy. He raps, sings, writes and produces. I was kinda feeling myself when I gave myself the name because it means “Boy Genius” in Italian and that’s how I feel.”

After all these questions were answered, we asked ourselves (internally) the last question;

Will we recommend it to others?

We certainly will! And we also hope you get to listen to it and perhaps share it with your friends.

Don’t forget to drop a comment and let us know what you think.
