Listen to DJ Consequence’s latest single, “Assignment” featuring Olamide

Olamide delivers in his local elements

Since his “Eni Duro” debut, Olamide has conjured a romance with the street, a  theme and narrative that easily makes him the most marketable rapper on the streets—at least in Nigeria’s South West. And though his attempts to fully explore this ghetto aesthetic often derails him from his original Hip-hop genre, his fame certainly isn’t worse off from it. His more Jollof songs like “Turn Up” and “Shakiti Bobo” are easily more commercial than his conventional hip-hop songs and that’s what DJ Consequence’s latest single, “Assignment” is going for.

Featuring Olamide in his local elements, DJ Consequence’s new song is primed for dancefloors thanks to the upbeat Afro-house rhyme produced by Young John. The South African house drums are layered with spacious synth harmonies for Olamide’s laid back rap flow. He shout-outs streets in Lagos; “Shomolo/ Mushin/ Kumolu/” while discussing money, yahoo yahoo, bad bitches and other topics the streets can’t seem to get enough of. All the usual fare for Olamide, but he makes it sound so good.
