Detroit based emcee/producer Chisom takes it back home with this chilled out mellow remix of an afropop/dancehall joint titled Soke. With the recent wave of Afropop in the mainstream consciousness most likely due to Drake’s unexpected remix of the song “Ojuelegba” with Skepta and Wizkid, this tune won’t sound too far off. On this one, Chisom spits in English and his native tongue to spice things up.
Fresh off the release of his debut EP The Jordan Year, and the RESPECT Mag premiere and Chuck D cosign of lead single “Africa Get Money“, Detroit-based rapper/producer Chisom is back to usher in Spring ’16. This time, he delivers a suave remix to “Soke” by Nigerian Dancehall star Burna Boy. On the “Soke” Remix, 23-year-old Chisom and Burna Boy trade bars in three languages, as Chisom puts his unique spin on the hit record, switching effortlessly between rapping and singing in Igbo and English (complementing Burna Boy’s “Yoruba”). This is truly international Hip Hop at its finest.
