It’s 2022, and African Hip Hop has found new life in a singular, storming force; Drill. From the catchy one-liners of Ghana’s Black Sheriff to the rapid flows of Nigeria’s Droxx, rap has taken a new form in the sounds exhibited by these Artistes. On “Favors”, Maupheen reach for a place among Drill’s icons, with the help of Odumodublvck and Inart — he succeeds.
Released under RawLL, the Lagos based record and publishing company. Delis produced the smooth record.
Tackling topics like hustle with aplomb and bravura flows, RawLL and Maupheen deliver one of the best rap songs of the year. Perhaps the most impressive thing about the track is how evenly matched they all are. No one artiste outshines the others on the track, making for a cohesive yet compelling track. listen to it here
In all, “Favors” is a victory for the Artistes involved, and the drill community as a whole.
