Kapri Is The New Hip-Hop Powerhouse Ready For The Limelight

Published

on

Artists come and go. Sometimes artists come in gold. Such is the richness in talent of the global music scene. And no one exhibits this rich vein of pure golden talent than Kapri.

At just 25, Kapri, the Belgium-based Sierra Leonean rapper with Spanish descent has already seen enough in life to carve him into a wonderful artist. As they say “an artist’s greatest arsenal is how well he can express his lived experiences” that is how originally in art is crafted. Kapri embodies this.  

When he was 19, Kapri had already began to show his promise; dropping music that shone with a unique style, panache and delivery. Being the perfectionist that he is, he believed he could take things up a notch so he took a break from music to work on perfecting his craft. A move that would prove to be a very smart one.

Now, the kid who grew up on Hip-Hop, Rap and RNB influences has become a man and he is ready for the limelight. The world is ready for him and he promises that we are going to see so much more of him presently and the future. Kapri is one of half of the emerging rap duo called, Playmaker$ with his friend and fellow rap star, Enitime.

Ladies and gentlemen, we are excited about Kapri and we want you to watch out for this absolutely remarkable Hip-Hop artist.

Meet Playmaker$: The Hip-Hop Group Taking The Game By Storm

Published

on

Playmaker$ is a Hip-Hop/Trap group based in Brussels, Belgium consisting of talented rappers, Kapri and Enitime. The partnership was born out of mutual admiration of one another spanning years. This inspired collaborations on some records which were received with critical acclaim.  

After the success of their initial collaborations, the pair heeded to the call from fans and decided to form the rap group, Playmaker$. Kapri and Enitime’s ideological similarities gives the duo a balance that will see Playmaker$ stay around for a very long time. Kapri who is a 25 year old Sierra Leonean rapper with Spanish descent has been strongly influenced by his city, his friends and his family over the years. His music and style mirrors the experiences he grew up on.

Enitime, a rapper and an entrepreneur of Gambia and Malian descent shares a similar journey. Both artists believe music goes beyond creating great sonic pieces. They believe that quality music has the power to make strong impacts on the culture and people around them and this guides their choice of lyrics, sound and everything that has to do with their creation process.

The sonic elements of their music however are smooth as the calm seas. Their melodious rap style will have you bumping your head and singing along simultaneously. Playmaker$ was founded in October, 2020. Their music can be described as a marriage of melody, real life experiences and sonic mastery – a style that captures their journeys as artistes and individuals expertly.

The group are currently working on a mixtape set to be released in 2021.

Meet Mr. S: The Smooth Operating Ghanaian Singer-songwriter Charting His Own Path

Published

on

The music scene globally has undergone a very steady metamorphosis over the years. This evolution has been even much more exponential in recent years thanks to the popularity and transition of music consumption from downloads to streams. This new dynamic has been particularly kind to indie artistes who can now release very quality material without having to go through the bureaucracy of record labels. One of such artistes to benefit from this shift in attitudes is Ghanaian singer-songwriter, Mr. S.

Often conflicted in his own thoughts, Mr. S expresses how his music journey has been stuttered over the years due to the pain of missing out on near-successes. In the formative days of his career, the Soloist experimented with a genre he wanted to call ‘’Sang Poems’’ – an adaption of spoken word but in this sense with crooning.

‘’I always felt I had a calling to do something unique. Before anything I am a writer first. Initially I believed I could coin a style that was simply poems sang out on a beat without following conventional music progressions’’, Mr. S commenting on the birthing phase of his music journey. He was able to achieve this on two songs namely ‘Seasons’ (A Sang Poem) and ‘Perfect Day’ (Offeibea) – an ode turned song he wrote for his then girlfriend. The reception to that phase of his music was mixed. For most it was clear to see the depth and quality of his lyricism, storytelling and silky vocals. There were others who felt the style just didn’t work.

Mr. S accepted all reviews in great stride, although he had to take an extended timeout from music. 2020 would bring Mr. S back in the game with a bang. ‘’I hate that it had to take a pandemic to remind me but seeing everything happening in the world was a huge wake up call. It finally hit me that life truly is short and if there is something you love doing, there is no excuse in refusing to’’ – this epiphany coupled with persuasion from some concerned fans would prove to be the turning point.

Mr. S dropped the fan favourite contemporary RnB classic ‘Explosions’ in August 2020. ‘Explosions’ is a sensual masterpiece. A song that beautifully recounts an intimate moment between lovers. He says the lovemaking encounter expressed in the song is the type that can only happen between two people who are thoroughly dedicated to pleasing each other. After the overwhelming support ‘Explosions’ received, Mr. S went on to drop two more singles ‘Hey’ and ‘Blue Days’ (Autumn Interlude) capping off 2020 with three strong singles that will certainly keep listeners ‘’sonigasmically’’ occupied and yearning for more.

‘’These three singles were just to test the waters and I have been very pleased with the reception. The goal is to get them to as many ears as possible as I work on completing my EP. Hopefully, I can put out a few more singles soon before the EP comes out’’, Mr. S said about his three singles and works on the debut EP he plans on releasing in the first quarter of 2021.

The journey has just begun for Mr. S and we can’t wait to see where his ship sails. Check out his music here: https://lnk.to/CruxMrS-Explosions
