Over the past few years, the cyphers have served to further Hip-Hop culture in the country by pairing veteran Hip-Hop artists with nascent acts to create unmissable cypher performances. These cyphers have included M.I Abaga, Vector, Psycho YP, Jesse Jagz, Teeto Ceemos, and YCee. Now Hennessy Nigeria has shared a new compilation featuring some of the alumnae including Phlow, Laud Reyes, Barry Lane and more.

The glistening 7-track Hip-Hop mixtape titled ‘The Very Special Tape, Vol.1’ is helmed by two of Nigeria’s foremost rappers, M.I Abaga and Vector who serve as executive producers on the project. The mixtape also boasts of a stacked roster of prolific voices including Vector, Laud Reyes, M.I Abaga, Payper Corleone, Phlowetry, amongst others, who bounce off each other to conjure an eclectic high-voltage offering with themes revolving around ego, ebullience and success.

The release of ‘The Very Special Tape, Vol.1’ spells new strides in the brand’s unwavering commitment to uplifting Hip-Hop culture in Nigeria. The eight installment of the Hennessy Artistry VS Class series is currently underway. The show, which boasts of having veteran rappers Ill Bliss, M.I, Ladipoe & Vector as judges, sees the judges tour the country in search of the most prolific undiscovered rap artists.
