LAGOS “Learnin’ and Grindin’ on Street” explains his music saying “I don’t construct rhythmic sentences and dance able flows; I entertain and educate my listeners.” The Business Administration graduate from the University of Ilorin inspired by the likes of Fela, Sam Cooke, Clipse, Ray Charles and Notorious B.I.G released recently his mixtape ‘LAGOS WUZ ERE’; Sina Akinsola who is practically learning and grinding on the streets took a very bold step in releasing this material although it might not be mind-blowing. The rapper who is reminiscent of Modenine wastes no time letting us know that “If the mind can conceive it, the man can achieve it” in the ‘Prologue’.
The mixtape has some very solid tracks, ‘Acid Rain’, ‘Street Grammar II’ the list continues. The major subject Mr. LAGOS addresses in this release is basically Street Credibility, for instance the sing-along ‘At Last’ where believes he has what it takes to stay; it has been a long time he embarked on the hip hop journey and as he has arrived fans should put their hands up high in the air. It is a mixtape so expectations should be minimal, yet he raises the bar in ‘Dark and Luvly’, on the head-bumping instrumentation and production he raps about a lady prophesying her attraction towards him simply because he is dark and lovely; this track is as intoxicating as they come. LAGOS also delivers in ‘Mic n Me’, Kaba Kaba (Remix), the J. Clue assisted ‘Sarewa’ and ‘Dis Weekend’ which features chilling vocals from singer Salz A.
LAGOS wuz ere and might just stay with his latest mixtape RAPture set to be released May 21, the future looks colorful for the rapper.
