Runtown shares long-awaited ‘Tradition’ EP

Released a week ahead of the scheduled date

Runtown just put out his long-awaited Tradition EP a week before its scheduled release date. The 6-song project is coming three years after his late 2015 debut album, ‘Ghetto University’. Although the singer had been teasing a new project since February last year, he was limited to releasing only a handful of stellar singles by a public legal tussle with the boss of his former label, Eric Manny.

Now fully independent, and putting out music under his Soundgod imprint, Runtown intends on using his autonomy as a springboard into the next level of his career, hoping to partake in the global attention Afropop has enjoyed lately. Last year, Runtown’s “No Permission” collaboration with Nasty C provided proof of Afropop’s evolution, as well as his ability to blend Nigerian music sensibilities with western soundscapes. ‘Tradition’ follows the same winning confluence formula, featuring a sole guest verse from South-east London rapper, Fekky on the pre-release single, “Unleash”, with production from premier Afropop producers, Del B and Spellz.
