SONIC EXPERIENCE!

Ain’t nobody badder than
Run am if u think u fit
I run the game yeah ain’t counterfeit
Aint gat no counterpart they can’t defeat
Its ironic they homophobic but still cant get the fuck off my dick
They want my spot, i swear they fantasized
And over analysize.. but when it comes to dope u know that am the guy
I sue the bro to court.. i rarely follow protocols
Its been a overhaul.. so imma leave this as unknown to y’all
But i ain’t y’all
And every time i’m looking to the sky, thanking God that i ain’t y’all
Gave y’all enough time to catch up… since i was A1
Daddy is home, let see which one of y’all is fit to play ball
Men have been at this, since man have been a boys
And money talks so when i speak am sure to use my invoice
So yea i really enjoy, leaving y’all niggas annoyed
So talk elbow, that’s the only time i transfer my joints
I go from start to fades, like its beginning to end
I turn two L’s to a W and now am winning again
I been a *gunna or gabbly* be the scene on a stage
Hip hop for naija na blur, feel like am rapping in vain
But i still kill it regardless
And you know me, am new school
But Henny put me up with 3 O’Gs
You must be drunk if u think u could belittle me now
I was the last born but right now i am the main child
Cos am between the past and future
The demons and Gods
Between the rappers and singer How i evened the odds
And that is something to consider like ain’t feeding your thoughts
And if we don’t get you in the street, we’ll just see you in court
Had some dawgs that wrote me off
Buh hallo this is me writing back
They say am top 5 and really i dont see no lie in that
And my pocket is been getting fat
Feeding all your fear, i see a killer bee and i attack
Men are here, nobody do it like you do
Before you talk bout my career please tell me what do you do
Oludemilade, i been seating on the throne
And you sound overrated well you just talking your own
Last bars imma make em count
Am making money and y’all murdafuckas don’t make em how
If y’all smile enough u see it on the bright side
Because when am going in y’all are saying for the outside…

Ycee is back in the Nigerian music scene with a bang. The song is a tribute to Hennessy Artistry turning 10. However, in this song, he talks about himself maonly. In fact, the song is a self-eulogy. He talks about how Hip Hop is a blure in the Nigeria music scebne and he feels like he is rappng in vaing but he is the baddest rapper out there. We found the content and even the sound of the song amusing.

Positives

Hennessy 10 starts with an amusing instrumental. We have not heard instrumentals like this for a while, as far back as probably the last 2000s. From the intro of the song, we felt a keen sense of retro from the song.
We found the lyrics of the song to be filled with self-confidence and positivity. e also liked the plot development of the song.
Ycee's vocals were clear and crisp. his performance was just right for this type of song.
Hennessy 10 is a funky hip hop song. We must confess, we liked the sound of the song from the very beginning. We liked the fact that it was different from most of what we have out there. The song is filled with a freshness of sound, absence of musical clichés, colourful work.

Negatives

The song is amusing because of how Ycee eulogises himself as a rapper throughout the song, talk about vain? What we are more concerned about is choice words he used in some lines of the song. They were rather too vulgar. Furthermore, the lyrical structure of the song is not that impressive.
As impressive as the song sounded, we realised that we quickly got burned out and tired of the song a few minutes into our review. It just did not make it for us.
