Pappy Kojo finally broke his musical hiatus by releasing a sleek banger in his latest 1 Sima track. The Takoradi native who has publicly spoken about his struggles regarding the mental side of his musical career has not lost it and delivered something special on this Drill inspired hip-hop record.
Not surprising to see the drill effect here as the Kumericans have given it a new level in the music scene with their Asakaa sound. Bringing Tallal J. Sangari on board to make this production top-notch, Tallal didn’t fail by providing the right tone for the rappers to go hard on the beat.
Pappy Kojo had lyrical genius Kojo Trip, the talented all-around The Township, and the trio of Hyndu, Nemsis Loso, and Yaw Lucaz, who were phenomenal in their guest performances. These are all Takoradi rappers who have been inspired by Pappy Kojo’s musical journey.
He’s also dropped a dope visual for the record, which was directed by Jason Gaisie, which you can watch on YouTube.
Kojo Trip started his verse in an abattoir, so it only made sense that he slaughtered the beat. Period. That verse was epic. But The Township’s delivery spoke volumes about his dexterity and range as a musician.
The delivery was top-notch, with his flow calm and riding the instrumental smoothly. Pappy echoing some of his lines in the visuals only goes to show how much of a vibe he brought to the record.
Hyndu and Nemsis Loso’s verses dug deep into the Takoradi culture and brought out their style in its purest and rawest form, with Yaw Lucaz ending the record on a wild note with his energetic delivery.
An excellent record Pappy Kojo put together, and an impressive collection of artists he did this with.
