There’s so much new music being released that it’s hard for even the most loyal fans to wade through the trash to find the gems. That’s why we’ve created #BumpThis – a Friday series that features new songs, by and featuring Nigerians, that you absolutely need to hear.
Boogey — “Huntn Szn”
While people may not have been paying enough attention to the genre before all the beefs and squabbling, hip-hop in Nigeria has never been lacking in talent. In fact, if there was any justice in the world, Boogey would be one of the most recognisable names in our music industry.
The fantastic rapper, who’s deservedly been nominated for ‘Lyricist on the Roll’ at the Headies multiple times, has consistently delivered for many years now. The latest proof of his undeniable talent comes in the form of a razor-sharp new freestyle, “Huntn Szn”.
On the track, Boogey is very aware of just how gifted he is. He raps about not needing a feud as an excuse to drop quality bars, his frustration with the disrespect the genre endures and refusing to go pop to get attention. Like with most of his releases, “Huntn Szn” is a lyrical masterclass.
