Nigerian rapper Burna Boy is set for another superlative year. Already he has been recognized by YouTube as one of the voices opening new frontiers in afrobeats in Nigeria. Back in 2018 he had been recognized by the music streaming site as the Artist on the Rise.
Well, Burna Boy is rising and rising. And it is a pleasure to watch. He had earlier this year said that he had three albums recorded. One of them, titled “Steel & Copper,” is out and features American DJ pair DJDS,
“Thuggin,” the track in review, streams off Burna Boy‘s EP. The video of the song has just been released, so the song is buzzing once again. “Thuggin” is one track bound to speak to the street and those who grew up in the streets.
In “Thuggin” one gets to see the pains and little pleasures of life on the streets, of life with limited resources. Let me not add death. I love this track and I think many will love it too. It speaks of life I have observed around me, and it is nothing cloying.
