Mixtape: Egbezi – S.A.G.A.R. (Setting Aside Guidelines And Rules)
In an era where people would rather put a mask on than be who they truly are, where so many dreams go by unrealized due to disbelief, fear, and doubts in our God’s given gifts and potentials. Underground Nigerian lyricist, Egbezi (also known as Tha rap scientist) comes out with a strong statement: ‘Our only limits, are the ones we set for ourselves’. With that being said, despite being an independent artist with no major label funding, the Warri native MC is here with his fourth musical project (his second within a space of 6 months). A mix-tape titled ‘S.A.G.A.R’, an acronym for ‘Setting Aside Guidelines and Rules’.
This great piece of art was completed by a “three-man team”: A prolific MC/lyricist/poet (Egbezi), two producers (Egbezi & Wolexly) and a fourteen year old female vocalist (Happiness). And all it took to get this tape done was a room studio set up and 48 hours of recording. Given the short period of its completion, coupled with the fact that it’s done by an ‘upcoming Nigerian rapper’ you’re forgiven already if you presumed it to be a trash… cut long story short, check out the mix-tape below, listen with an open mind and let us know your thoughts. Be inspired!
