Hello, AboGod, Let’s talk about your new single, ‘Chosen’, what is the meaning?
“Chosen” is a direct message to the listener that I’m “Chosen” from the Most High God for a great purpose in changing the world as we know it and helping grow his kingdom. Telling the audience that I wouldn’t have anything that I have if it wasn’t God; my talents and my many wisdoms. It’s the fact that I’m Chosen that I have my abilities. I am on a mission to change the entire world for the greater good.
Which artists in the current industry inspire you the most?
I don’t have an artist that inspires me, but I do listen to a variety of artists. God is my inspiration for he is “The Musician” and creator of all things including sound. I want my music to satisfy his frequency.
What is the best thing about being a musician in 2022?
I would definitely say when I freestyled the whole song Chosen when I was recording. The song was done in 45 minutes crazy enough. I felt Good before and after recording.
Is there a certain place you often go to write? E.g a certain room, or environment?
The whole world is where I write, but my favorite place is in my mind because I have my own place when I meditate and go into the room in my head.
What is your first memory of music?
I have so many memories of music, my first memory would be very difficult to say. I’ve listened to so many songs from many countries around the world I couldn’t say, but I remember listening to artists like Tupac and Sade as a kid.
Adam Giles Levy explores with his new track ‘Wild Earth’, bringing a new bluesy folk edge to modern music. It is from his new album, ‘Wake Of Disarray’, which will drop later this year.
The Surrey-born singer/songwriter has been perfecting his craft for several years, and his dedication to developing a unique sound is paying off. Furthermore, ‘Wild Earth’ incorporates a variety of styles, making for a novel encounter that leaves us wanting more.
AboGod expresses himself without ambiguity on his latest release, ‘Chosen’. The star rapper from the United States bursts onto the scene, bringing a message that hits home for all the right reasons.
‘Chosen’ is a one-of-a-kind experience that is impossible to overlook! Furthermore, the song is a voyage through spirituality and religion, and AboGod smashes it with a thought-provoking rap delivery that stands out among contemporaries in the same genre. His lyrics are indenting, and he talks about growing closer to God and having faith.
Amun El’s latest song, ‘Freedom,’ is to send a shockwave through the hip hop realm!
‘Freedom’, with a unique structure, is everything we could have hoped for from an artist of Amun’s calibre. The tune stands out from the start, and its infectious cadence sends hairs flying on the back of the neck skyward. The narrative is powerful, and Amun drives home the point with a storey about seeking freedom and finding autonomy.
King Royal, the man of the moment, gave us an insight into his music career and plans going forward. Check out what he said below.
Hello, King, how has your January been so far?
2022 has been major already. The way we ended last year, I already knew things were going to take off like this. It was only a matter of time. Wholelottaguap did major streams last year and is already passed 150k streams total. I have a few shows coming up. I got a few videos in the vault ready to be released for the album. Everything is falling into place just like we’ve been manifesting. It’s only a matter of time before yall see and hear me and RDE everywhere.
‘Wholelottaguap’ is an empowering track, is it one of the tracks which means the most to you as a songwriter?
The song definitely has been flooding the world. So many different countries have been showing us love. But it’s crazy because that song was put together so fast that it never really meant anything to me. Once Lil Noodle sent his part back, I pretty much cooked up my part that same day. I just wanted to put together something that I thought the people would find catchy. I wasn’t even trying to get too lyrical on it, I just was having fun. If you go back and play ‘And It Was So’ or ‘Total Royalty 2’, you’ll see how I never hesitate to speak on worldly topics. However, this beat didn’t need all of that. So it’s definitely not a song that means the most to me but it’s definitely a fun track.
Have you any gigs planned for 2022?
Most definitely. In February, the whole team is going to tour in California. After that, I want to start touring more states! I have dozens of hits to choose from so imma have the crowd rocking no matter how I make the setlist. It’s been a few years since I’ve performed so I cant wait to interact with the people again.
Who would you love to collaborate with?
Any of those artists I grew up on definitely. Weezy, Kanye, Jay Z, etc. That would be dope.
But I love music so much that I would finesse a collab with any artist, any genre. I’m always down to expand the skill and the sound.
Outside of music, do you have any other passions?
I love sports. Basketball specifically, I can watch that or play that all day. But I love watching damn near every sport. Also, it’s fun to step away from the music and do any outside activities, especially when it’s with the family. I get so involved in this music, so when I get a chance to actually step away and enjoy my people, I’m always down for that.
With his new single, ‘Wholelottaguap’, King Royal is sending a shockwave through hip hop.
King Royal offers one of the most captivating performances to emerge from the scene in recent times, grabbing our attention right away and keeping us fascinated for the duration. His passion is evident, and he doesn’t hold back when it comes to his prowess, which rises to the top of the mix with vigour! The music is equally as powerful, with energy flowing from every note.
Spade The Artist has us clutching his new release like a biker’s mitt. ‘Stash House,’ his latest delivery, is bursting with energy, and Spade smashes it with a riveting rap performance.
The artist is only early in his career, but he’s already giving the game’s biggest names a run for their money. He also sounds powerful with a melodic rap vocal that makes an impact unlike any other in the present era. The music stands out, and it propels the tune forward with enthusiasm.
Fèroce and Just Isaiah, two British rappers, team up for their new single, ‘Get To The Money.’ It’s a song that speaks for many people, and it hits home right away with an empowering message for everyone to enjoy.
The East London-based duo push the boundaries with a sound that takes cues from the finest, such as Skepta, but adds its own twist. They despise maintaining the current quo, and it’s nice to see their vision emerge here.
It’s lively, and the energy emitted by the production is difficult to resist. So much so that once it gets going, you’ll find it challenging to draw away, not that you’d want to.
