A LIFT OFF THE UNDISPUTED MIXTAPE VOL II- MATERIAL ELEGBEJE IS SMOKING THE FLOW

 
A markedly reflective song, euphoric. It sums the artiste’s new found lifestyle, popularity and success. The song has a limitless affinity to Rick Ross’ Aston Martin Music and Nickleback’s Rockstar. It is a song celebrating the fast life that comes with success.

The verses were well layered on the beat and one could perceive the painstaking effort of the producer, as the chorus and verses synched. At 1 minute 52 seconds, Lift off is quite short; this could perhaps be a plus for the song, leaving the listener no choice than to punch repeat. 

Crafty use of rhyme and Nigerian lingo set this man aside as an artiste with a vault of metaphors. His gift of language, poetry and ears for rhyme reflects all through and he’s definitely saying this is not the preserve of Mode 9 or SinzuSMG. The rap verses as well hook are well delivered. The hook singer did a marvelous job and that’s perhaps one of the best hook I have heard lately on a Nigerian song.

I have listened to Material Elegbeje before, this track might just be what he needs to raise his profile and stake a claim to the Naija hip-hop mainstream. And again, “Shout out to Dr. Frabz on this one!”. He equally showed why Dagrin (R.I.P) was such a success. The song is a neat club banger any day.

RATING: 3.5/5
