The YKB assisted Fall For Me and Wagwan, two stellar fan-favorite singles that preceded Laycon’s debut album, …Shall We Begin…, did the reality TV star’s music career, a world of good, in the sense that they heavily spotlighted his versatility and since their release, he’s run with this new perception of his artistry. “Shey you see we dey verified“, these six words rife in the chorus of Verified, another fan-favorite off the album that just got treated to an Unlimited L.A directed video is proof that he’s rapidly building and growing at almost, if not the same pace.
Laycon is your typical rapper with his classic one-two step flow and obvious bars alluding to his background, growth, haters, and his newly afforded lifestyle, but with his sound direction, we’re presented with a twist. Verified, is an encapsulation of this. The lifestyle-defining single begins with a harmonious fusion of flute-y percussions and melodious keys punctuated by bass drums, all of which when thrown into a mix, serves as the perfect introduction to Laycon’s engaging and relatable admission. With Mayorkun’s inclusion, the single and video by extension become industry standard.
Verified is Laycon’s way of adapting to his new lifestyle and per his manifesto on …Shall We Begin… he seems to be getting a hang of this fame and talent afforded life.
