The art of rap relies not just on throwing words over beat(s). To be described as ‘a lyricist’, one has to display a variety of skills- better use of metaphors, similes, rhyme schemes, punchlines that goes over the head and applaudable wordplay.
That’s what NuGenius exhibited on his new track ‘Wordplay’ produced by Bush Beatz & Multiple BlastOff. On this track, he gives the listener a peek into his battle rapper- trademark, displaying the ability to comfortably ride on a well laid Afrobeat.
With lyrics such as “A diehard/ I do what my will is (Bruce)”, word playing around the actor Bruce Willis and his popular movie “Die Hard”, describing how hard it is for him to be lyrically killed or back down.
NuGenius certainly gives the listener something to puzzle on while bumping to the song. Listen here.
