Produced by Jayso this tribute to Super Mario is good. Much better than the Chelsea song, although i don’t know if I’m blinded by the fact that someone made a song about chelsea. The Trappy, Hip Hop beat is good and the first verse really gets into Mario’s story. To be fair it’s great to see people making songs about Mario, Drake professes his domination but can’t be bothered to actually mention him in rhyme. Not that it really matters but we will look back at Mario’s career with intrigue in 20 years time. Money, petulance, racism and self identity are just are small part of his story.

First it was Machel and Timaya (well actually a couple of other folks) and not it’s the time of P-Square and Sizwe/ I was hoping for a sly road mix but its pretty much the same as the OG. Here’s to more of this please.
First of all Phyno’s videos are the best out at the moment. What yo end up losing by him speaking in his native tongue is more than made up with his visuals. The other thing thats important for him is that very instrumental i’ve heard him on is part hip hop part racing dance music, creating an interesting soundscape that is his own. I spent most of this morning going through artists that are trying to sound like 2013 50 cent. Even 50 Cent doesn’t want to sound like 2013 50 Cent, it’s quite depressing. I guess another thing i like about Phyno, he looks like a naija version of Taz Arnold. Differentiating yourself is going to be pivotal as the outside world starts looking at these artists.
Seriously Wizkid’s ability to nail almost every single one of his appearances is crazy. He is probably averaging a new track every two weeks and more than often they are a hit. This one produced by Maleek Berry (Uk based) is rolling, organ led track with burrows itself into your head. The track is for Saeon but i could probably leave her out of it. That’s not to say that she is bad, in fact the more i play it the better she is but she is definitely playing it straight allows Wizkid to steal the show. Apparently she is a very talented songwriter.
The thing i love a bout soca is that sometimes it doesn’t waste time on lyrics. Thats not to say that they are useless but they take a simple premise and make a catchy tune. This one is about KI going on tour and his mrs leaving him. That’s it but its an ear worm of a song that doesn’t leave you.
