Boys Are Not Smiling

Reviews by Admin   /   0 Seconds Ago

Mix an angry smiley, a super-fresh tee and a veteran rap alter ego known as ’Joe Spasm’ and what you’ve got is "Boys Are Not Smiling". This is a 16 track rap album laced with crazy cool samples, eloquent rhymes and Terry tha Rapman’s unflinching loyalty to the core Rap/Hip-Hop genre.

Terry hits the ground running with the "B.A.N.S intro", spilling his credentials and taking a stand on rap music; immersing us into his world where music in its totality is life itself. The album then moves onto "Sample" - the Best Rap Single at the 2010 Hip-Hop Worlds Awards - which remarkably fuses Stereoman’s ghetto dancehall/folk hit into a track that is undiluted ’bump-to-this’ rap music at its best.

The album continues to flow remarkably well, featuring a wide sphere of stars from fellow rappers M.I., Pheroshuwz, Cartiar and eLDee to other artistes like Sound Sultan, Mo’ Cheddah, Kefee, Terry G, Stereoman and many more. With all these collaborations, it is really amazing how the album still manages to retain a sound that the rap heads will be able to appreciate.

Stand-out tracks on the album are "Sample", "O Ti Ya Were", "Boyz Don Hammer", "Ojoro" and "Been There Before".

On the whole, the album is a good listen and even more crucial, it is being released at a time when Nigeria has a greater appreciation for rap and hip-hop music.
