Blueprint Hakeem drops his first single for the year 2020 titled “Gravity/Going for the throat”. After his award nominated Disciple Music EP of October 2018, the lyrical genius, and rapper with the baritone is back this time around, with a single.
Produced by Baeby of After-9 records, Gravity is strictly hiphop. An absolute instrumentation of blended choral chants backed by well seated 808 drums and ear-slapping snares.
The lyrics to the song is a verbal compression of the unending dreaded news stories all over the world and how dissapointed the rapper is, to be looked at as a Cameroonian (a man who kills his own brother for power). The Nebangu Muzik rapper mentions the unlawful killings of little children in the North West Region of his country Cameroon, the deaths of popular figures and the jealousy in show business.
He advises with short interludes before and after his verses, the doom of evil behaviors, and preaches ‘space for everyone to thrive instead of being a wall to the faces of others, for the mere sake of wanting to stay in a position of power.’
The song begins and concludes with the popular saying “what goes up, must come down.” Hence the title, “Gravity/Going for the throat.”
This is a refined class of hiphop, with lessons and story headlines. Listen and Download MP3 below.
