Olamide Essentials

The reigning king of indigenous rap and consistent hitmaker, Olamide Adedeji creates music that resonates well beyond language. Whether he's spitting over trap snares or spacious beats, channeling bristling urgency or leading anthem-sized choruses, the Lagos State artist commands attention with his energy and attitude. Since his debut Rapsodi dropped in 2011, he's released a string of albums, including one collaborative record with Phyno in 2015 as well as Glory in 2016. With little sign he's running out of inspiration, he continues to set the pace for indigenous rap and beyond. Don't take our word for it—take a listen.
