WPGM Exclusive... Terry Tha Rapman - The Joe Spazm Mixtape

Now for me personally, Nigerian Hip-Hop can be very very HIT & MISS... On one end of the spectrum, you find the likes of M.I, Naeto C, Kel, Mode Nine, Iceprince, Teeto & only a few other credible EMCEES (& even some of these guys Bottle it sometimes) but on the other end, well you have the rest of them really (YES I WENT THERE, LET THE HATE MAILS COMMENCE) so when my homegirl This M.Et.Al Chic sent me in this 23-track mixtape by one 'Terry Tha Rapman', I was a bit intrigued by what this emcee had to offer... I remember hearing his 2000 refix of Eminem's 'My Name is', 'I Am A Nigerian' which was quite catchy to say the least, with witty lyrics & a cool flow... Dont fret, it's on the mixtape when you download it!

Anyway the mixtape is titled 'The Joe Spazm Mixtape', it features a wide array of the who's who of what's HOT in 2009 Nigerian Hip-Hop (only noteable omissions would be M.I & Naeto C to be honest) & it's hosted by D.J Jimmy Jatt (if you're into the Nigerian music scene & you dunno him then you're LOST!)... Let's go straight into our favorite CUTS right after the JUMP, shall we?

Band press kits
What you just heard is Terry ripping to shreds the now infamous 'A Milli' record... Now I'm sure you have heard a million & one freestyles over this record & from the best of them aswell BUT I reckon I rate this one quite highly... Very witty Master P/Naeto C/R.Kelly punch-lines & I know that M.I... C line got you too lol!

On to the NEXT one...

Electronic Press Kit
Can I just say quickly that I love the original record so much... Busta Rhymes/Lil Wayne/Jadakiss init? & Jada completely owns this BEAT so it was exciting to see Terry GO in on this record because for me, this is one of them HIT or MISS records... It's either you totally take the cake or you totally bottle it as an EMCEE on this record & I think him & Othello really did the track justice... Good thing it is the first track you hear on the mixtape because it gives you the impetus to carry on listening... I like this record & Othello really UPPED his game on his verse! CLAP FOR EM!!!

Another HEAVY Hitter?

So what do you get when you mix three of the BEST Nigerian EMCEES in the circuit right now? Well this is exactly what you get! The track's titled 'John 3:16s' and Terry Tha Rapman, Teeto & Iceprince GO in over one of Busta Rhymes' classic records to give us one of the highlights of the 'Joe Spazm Mixtape', well one of my highlights anyway...

What do you think of Terry Tha Rapman so far? I like him if I'm being perfectly honest. He's not gimmicky which I totally appreciate and over 23 tracks, he's got me sold on not only his rap skills but I reckon he can carve out his lane in the industry and just work it... well we'll see, won't we?

I'll lace y'all with one more record off of the mixtape, lemme know what you think?

Play Gigs
I only have one question after listening to that record & it's the same question everytime... WHO THE HELL IS THAT FEMCEE on the first verse & in the words of J.Cole, I'm wondering 'Where the F**K they find her'??? The woman is straight fire on those rhymes yo + her flow is impeccable IMO & oh did that Ghetto-P bring it on his verse aswell or did he just bring it? All round GOODness all over the classis 'Swagger Like Us' cut!!!

Download the whole MIXTAPE HERE & ENJOY some proper Nigerian Hip-Hop!!!

Until the Next Time...
