Coming off the heels of his representing Lagos in the inaugural edition of the#GidiCypherChallenge/#CartoCypherseries, One of the craftiest,young Lyrical minds in the rap game;Jake, also known as ‘Lyricist-X’ releases“Lyricist-X”a track named after his Alter-ego. According to him, Jake is the part that can make all types of music and sound,while Lyricist-X is the rapper’s rapper, the backpacker or what some call the ‘bar to bar spitter’ and emcee. Usually this form of Jake’s music appears solely on tracks made by ‘Two Wise Men (TWM)’ the duo of Jake himself (Lyricist-X) and rapper Nasalexx-O (Rap Apostle), but as part of theSMOKESCREEN EPset to release next month, which is as the name implies, is a ‘smokescreen’ or a foreshadow of what to expect from the Rapper in the future,this track was made and included.
TheBeatsbyJayyproduced track was originally made for rapperAQ’sSon Of John project. ButJake takes it and remakes it, giving hip-hop lovers and fans out there something to Relish and a taste of just how good he is. He is so lyrically on point that you could put him right up there in the league of up and coming rappers doing well and carving a niche for themselves. But unlike most others he has his own sound, a unique blend of thought-provoking Lyrics that gives you the wow-effect and at the same time paints and leaves a vivid picture on your mind,laced with irregular sounds and instrumentals that most rappers would rather not use,or term too ‘hard’.
Much said, I solemnly Recommend you tune to this kid!, as he is one of the few bright spots in the industry right now. After listening to this track, you will see and understand why.
The song was Mixed and Mastered at Imperial Sound Factory studios by Ace engineer @Yldidit,Listen and yearn for more
