Throwback Record Of The Week: Naeto C – You Know My P (2008)

Scratch off the baggy jeans, hard vocals and boom bap beats, and replace them with fitted Evisu denims, mellow raps, and groovy instrumentals. What you’ll get is the rapper popularly known as Naeto C, who embedded his name in Nigerian hip hop history with his debut album – “You Know My P”. The LP dropped in 2008, and while it seemed it came out of nowhere, it had actually been in the works for about 2 years. The first Super […]

Throwback Record Of The Week: Ruggedman – Thy Album Come (2004)

Hate him or love him, you’d have to agree that Ruggedman was one of the bravest rappers of his generation. Why do I say this? Because he wasn’t afraid to take scathing shots at a person who at that time was considered the most powerful man in the Nigerian music industry – Kenny Ogungbe.

Throwback Record Of The Week: DJ Jimmy Jatt – The Definition (2007)

As far as Nigerian hip hop is concerned, no album has held it down for the culture better than DJ Jimmy Jatt’s “The Definition”. My humble opinion stems from the sheer number of MCs featured on the project (upcoming and A-listers alike). When hip hop heavyweights like Mode 9, Naeto C, Ruggedman, eLDee, M.I, Terry Tha Rapman, Pherowshuz, 2Shotz, Six-O, Gino, B-Elect, Elajoe, ILL Bliss, Ikechukwu, KB, and even international acts like Black Twang are featured on a project, then […]
