Lil Fyve’s ‘Live And Colored In Kumerica’ Features 3rd On Pan African Music’s Top 5 List



Kumerican musicians have proven they have outright agility of the drill music as they endlesssly top A class platforms around the world. The recent ranking of Pan African Music’s Top Five African Rap list finds Kumerica’s very own rapper Lil Fyve coming third with his Live And Colored In KumericaSee the outline of the full write from below.

“Because rap is never quiet, PAM gives you its news in Africa. Here is our selection of the 5 best titles of the past month, which emphasizes the drill wave that is also sweeping the Continent.

In October, the news of rap in Africa was marked by political and social events affecting Nigeria, Cameroon, Namibia and Côte d’Ivoire. Following Wizkid’s decision to postpone the release of his album scheduled for October 15 ( it was finally released on the 30th ), many Nigerian artists have refrained from releasing any new material in support of the #endSARS movement. In Côte d’Ivoire, rappers like the Chinese Apocalypse have mobilized to call on political leaders to keep the peace ahead of the presidential election. In another register, Congolese rap was shaken by the collaboration between Innoss’B and the Belgian-Congolese rapper Damso with the hit “Best” . In South Africa, rappers Nasty C and Costa Titch have released clips to illustrate their blockbuster albums.
But this month, we’re going to leave those tenors behind to look elsewhere. We have selected for you five clips released in October, a little more confidential but which testify to new trends such as the expansion of drill music or the vitality of certain scenes about which we speak too little.

Dr MaVibes – Umlilo (feat. Brvdley, Snymaan, Manny Yack & Blaq Diamond)

Let’s start with the Gauteng province in South Africa. After giving birth to several emblematic genres such as kwaïto, baccardi house and more recently amapiano, this region offers us its own version of drill music. This sub-genre of rap, in vogue for a few months, is characterized by a fast tempo (140 bpm) as well as bass drums and exacerbated bass emphasizing an often dark melody. “Umlilo”, which means “fire” is the first single from Zulu rapper Dr MaVibes. The latter as well as his four guests from the Ambitiouz Entertainment label develop there flows and sung couplets that contrast with the many imitations of Pop Smoke, the American rapper who popularized this trend. Finally a breath of fresh air on this omnipresent music for a few months.

Mr Luck – MouMaMou (feat. Mosty)

In Ivory Coast too, rappers fell in love with drill music. By incorporating rhythmic elements from popular music and of course the Nouchi language, they invented the ivory drill. One of the best examples of this fusion is the track “MouMaMou” by Mr. Luck produced by Mr. Béhi. The moumamou which gives its title to the piece is a dance from the zouglou which consists of a swinging movement of the hips. For the occasion, Mr Luck invited Mosty, a young rapper who will absolutely have to follow in the coming months!

Lil Fyve – LIVE and COLORED from Kumerica (feat. Braa Benk & City Boy)

If there is one place in Africa where drill music has taken hold, it is in the city of Kumasi in Ghana. In recent months, the rappers there have developed an aesthetic that they called “Kumerica” and which ideally has the luxury lifestyle of American rappers. The music from this city is rapped in Twi and is called asakaa. After the resounding success on the networks of the title “Sore” by Yaw Tog, many are hoping to meet the same fate. This is the case of Lil Fyve, Braa Benk and City Boy who offer, in “Live and Colored from Kumerica”, a dive into this universe.

DAK – C’est Magnifique (feat. MC PISSCO)

There is not only drill in life, there is also the Algerian trap represented by Savage Plug, Didine Canon 16 or Prince Polo. The one that impressed us the most in October was DAK’s “C’est superbe” track featuring MC Pissco. In the clip, the young rapper pays tribute to his native Kabylia by wearing the red and white colors of the USM Annaba football team, and the yellow and green ones of the Jeunesse Sportive de Kabylie. 

Paulelson – Novo Messi 2

Finally, the last stage in Angola with Paulelson. He was the rap revelation of the country in 2019 thanks to his mixtape “Novo Messi”. This project will have a sequel which is scheduled for release on November 1. The eponymous track “Novo Messi 2” will be the introduction. On the program, trap with flutes and strings, and the sharp flow that makes its mark. In the clip, Paulelson wears a FC Barcelona shirt, Lionel Messi’s club, and is surrounded by clowns. A universe as dark as it is intriguing, surely in the image of the upcoming project.
