Fast-rising Nigerian rap artist PsychoYP is back with a double A-side single release by way of ‘MIDLIFE CRISIS’ and ‘WYDTM’. Both equally stellar in quality, the songs were produced by long-time collaborator and producer Dylan Scott aka SCXTT.
Recently crowned the best rapper in Africa by The NATIVE and hailed as one of the ten Nigerian artists to watch by Complex, PsychoYP already boasts one of the best rap discographies on the continent. His fourth studio album, ‘Euphoria’ debuted at #1 on the Apple Music Top Albums chart for Hip-Hop/Rap in Nigeria, and has garnered over three million plays to date online.
“The song comes from a special place because I’m used to showing my strengths and hardcore side. This time, I really wanted to tell people the kind of relationships we face right now. They are filled with broken people finding something special in each other. ‘Midlife Crisis’ tells the story of a young boy in love with an older woman. Their bond is formed from the need to escape and craving for intimacy”.
“I spent a lot of time studying UK music and the various styles in the black music scene. This song is pure vibes inspired by the Craig David era that I grew up listening to with my older siblings when I was much younger and we lived in the UK with my mum. It’s an upbeat dance track about turning to material things to deal with heartbreak, and I just had to tap Apex Village prodigy Azanti for the garage-themed tune”.
