After accruing appreciable success with his 2021 debut, Amazing, Kiiwii returns with a hard-hitting meld of drill and trap that emphasizes the lifestyle that Lagos promotes, joined by Lil5ive on the single titled, My Crew.
Produced by D’Bliss-Beats, My Crew is a Drill and Trap crossover that draws life from the energetic basslines which also serve as the perfect plane for the complementary group to give experimentalism a new meaning. Audacious and completely immersed in this tasteful and edgy take on colonized genres, Kiiwii and Lil5ive do a great job of clearing the way for sounds like Drill to take root in the industry. At the same time, they share the stage with young men like them who key into their narrative through their use of relatable words and the engaging ambiance the enitre mix inspires.
It’s a new dawn for Hip-hop in Nigeria and with confidence brimming artists like Kiiwii moving to the surface, the era is about to be extensive and well defined.
