After dominating last summer with their hit singles “Options” and “OT Bop”, the six-man act from East London have just released their debut mixtape, ‘ROOTS’, just in time for the summer. The 18-track project is an ode to their respective hometowns; Nigeria, Ghana and London, and alongside the project came the latest single “Grandad”.
With features from Tion Wayne, Chip, Randy Valentine, and producer credits from 4Play, TakeADayTrip, Jae5, and more, NSG’s new drop is truly representative of their different multicultural influences. Their eclectic blend of afropop, rap, bashment and reggae take on a new shape than we’re used to, as the group hone in more on their sound. This project is primed for DJ sets, Instagram stories, and backyard parties, however, it’s a shame we have to take it in from our homes.
Speaking to the NATIVE, Papii Abz shared:
“Your roots are an important part of who you are. The main point we tried to show is that you can be yourself, and that self is acceptable around the world. Embrace Africa and the world will take you for who you are. Stay true to yourself.”
