Total ELienation: E.L’s ‘’Bar 6’’ is out of this world

Published

on

For his sixth in the now landmark series, the rapper’s abode with Africa’s Top 10 rap hierarchy is no longer guesswork, but absolute. ‘’BAR 6’’ is available on all digital streaming platforms globally here: https://fanlink.to/BAR6

 

In the decade gone, E.L reached escape velocity and shot for the moon. He was simply out of this world, leaving behind a trail of ubiquitous songs that embodied his then comprehensive style. But what was next? Well, in 2014 his conquest to become the ‘’Best African Rapper’’ (BAR) begun and after seven long years, he stares over a soon-to-be grateful continent right after placing his sixth Infinity Stone – ‘’Bar 6’’ in its groove.

A truly dense mixtape that makes his third studio album ‘’WAVs’’ feel like lightweight, E.L’s bite force is still strong and much closer to his wheelhouse of hardcore Hip-Hop. There’s a total of 14 songs amounting to 54 minutes, aside a roster full of rap-hungry megalomaniacs which include the likes of Joey B, Tulenkey, Kev the Topic, A-Clipse and Lyrical Joe to name a few.

 

Upon play, the first four songs are on the A-side – ‘Time’ through to ‘This Country’ – the former being an introspective opener on E.L’s ascent, to which he teasingly cites: “Can’t believe I shit on you niggas six times chale” and the latter being the heir to his ‘State of the Nation Address’ off the ‘’BAR 2’’ mixtape as he retouches on his motherland’s woes, though in a cynical tone. ‘Frodo Baggins’ (feat. Nova Blaq) plants itself among the aforementioned four, rocking that super tight – ‘’Ten years into my bag, no coming short like Frodo Baggins” line, as the project draws in on its run of star-studded features: ‘I Feel Like I’m the Shit’ (feat. Kev the Topic), ‘Kaafe Mafe’ (feat. Phyl4lyph & A-Clipse), ‘Dracula’ (feat. Lyrical Joe), the pre-released ‘Sudwe’ (feat. Joey B & Tulenkey) and ‘Rowdy’ (feat. Young Pabi & Temple), all putting rap fanatics on edge.

Towards its end however, the intensity gets a bit easy; ‘On God’ has the rapper toss in a couple of playful lines on the trap-like production, next to another song self-appreciative of his style – ‘Different’ (feat. Dr Laylow & Gambo). ‘The Bar Cypher’ isn’t far off from the previous two, but is the record’s chunkiest. It has E.L hand his platform to 6 budding guest artists: EL Deezy, Kimilist, Kojo Vypa, Gingsen and Hackey, all delivering that priceless cypher experience before the record rounds up with ‘Bar Out’ (feat. Kxng Tradey) and it’s solo close ‘Your Turn’.

 

Speaking with E.L about the series and what it is all about, the rapper shared: ‘’I consider this tape my social responsibility to keep hip-hop alive. I see so much talent around me and it casts my mind back to the times when I was an upcoming artist looking for someone to believe in me. I aim to keep using my platform to project and protect. It (Bar 6) is dedicated to all artists who feel like they have something special to offer. The goal is to encourage them to keep going against all odds and to do things their way’’.

On ‘’Bar 6’’, E.L’s aggression, uncanny pen game and ear for catchy production lives on, effortless in ferrying his rap legacy to where it belongs – everlasting plane.

KIKI CELINE LEARNS FROM OLD LOVE ON NEW SONG

Love being the greatest emotion has never been an overstatement. However, when talking about what it means to love and be loved, we often forget that sometimes the way someone loves us can change. When that happens, we are left with nothing but the memories of how we were loved by that person.

Audio link: https://tiememusicdistro.lnk.to/OldLove 

On her first single of the year 2024, Ghanaian singer KiKi Celine continues her beautiful run from 2023 as she pours out her heart and emotions on her new song titled “Old Love.”

The song cements Celine’s position as one of the best vocalists around and puts her songwriting abilities on full display. The song is reminiscent of early 2000s R&B classics we grew up on, with KiKi Celine’s bounce. Produced by Insvne Auggie, the song takes listeners on a journey of love gone wrong, pain, and reliving the few good times spent with a significant other.

If Celine’s writing or vocals were ever in doubt, “Old Love” will clear any doubts there are about the singer’s artistry. With a burgeoning R&B scene in Ghana and West and East Africa, Celine enters the conversation with this record. The melodies, delivery, and overall storytelling are remarkable and are sure to leave listeners in their “feels.”

Love teaches us a lot about others and ourselves that we do not know until we experience being loved by them. The song is an appreciation of how it feels to be loved while calling out people who introduce you to an experience they can never keep up with. When all is said and done, we will need more than just flowers and a touch of old love.

R&B music is alive, and KiKi Celine is determined to be one of the names synonymous with the genre whenever conversations about the genre come up.
