Loose brings an strangely calm, reflective and even soulful conveyance of his articulate bars while Classiq seals the deal with his exotic Northern Nigerian accent with his passionate tirade.

Reinhard of course is no wall flower; Mr Ayinde’s beat is an unmistakably Hip-Hop sound built on a trap foundation and kept afloat with hy…
