The rapper took to his Twitter page to announce the release of the body of work in the early hours of Friday. 

“Having the most powerful voice in hip-hop right now means I always have to live up to it. This project is dear to me, and I hope it travels far and is deeply felt by everyone who listens to it,” he wrote.

The body of work, which contains seven tracks, is produced by Beatsbyjay, except for a lone track by Sossick, a well-known music producer. The project is also mastered and mixed by God’s engineering.

The body of work dwells on sensitive socio-economic and political issues that bedevil Nigeria.

The project comes on the heels of the success recorded by ‘God’s Engineering’, his 2020 album that won the ‘Egg Rolls’ crooner ‘Best Rap Album’ at the 14th Headies awards.

He debuted his first single ‘(W)rap Nigeria’ in 2004, and released ‘Listen and Understand’, his first album, in 2005.
