While Nigerian has led with the Afrobeats genre, Hiphop has struggled with South African taking the lead even with being ‘disadvantaged’ in numbers. Even on the local landscape, the genre has surfaced as there’s not been a straight rap single dominating charts, radio et al.
So Dro Ameh asks long serving Nigerian rapper A-Q about his thought on state of Hiphop. The question was: Is Nigerian Hiphop dead? Listen to teaser of that chat with A-Q!
Talented rapper A-Q is a year older today and has decided to bless his fans with this all star hiphop collaboration, a remix to his previous released single “Jazzman”. He also released pre-order links for his forthcoming album “Blessed Forever”
Nobody makes music like A-Q and Nigerian Hiphop history would be very kind to his brilliance no matter the status he gets to as an active emcee. A-q samples and steps out as the only rapper that can pull it off (cue – in ‘Bang’, ‘Catch You Sub’ and ‘Son of John’ mixtape).
Here is a new track, produced by Beats by Jayy off the album dropping later this year from A-Q.
Q actually rapped over the fuji ‘machine’ percussions, This track is amazing!
