If you are conversant with Nigerian music, truly conversant…you would perceive that something has been going on of recent… I’d like to call it The Eastern Revolution.
We’ve got acts like Phyno, IllBliss, Flavour, to name a few, ‘disturbing’ the airwaves. It is also known that deejays are not “dulling” as well in this ‘movement’. So without further ado, here’s a deejay that needs no introduction: Xtraordinary DJ Xtacee.
From the stables of IDGAF (I Don’t Give A F**k) Entertainment, employing the help of fellow veteran deejay, DJ Cizle. Xtacee comes with an ingenious project called The IDGAF Mixtape, Vol. 1.
One of the really cool things is how he samples ‘voice clips’ from movies, so far featuring my all time best actor, Al Pacino to introduce the concept of the song. There’s “Theraflow” featuring Phyno and now, there’s “Clique Cover” featuring Okizona which samples Kanye West’s track of the same title, thus a cover.
This hip hop track begins with Pacino and Keanu Reeves’ voice clip from “The Devil’s Advocate”, then Okizona doing real damage to the track with witty, ‘cocky’ punchlines. i must say, Okizona is Dope.
“Clique Cover” by Dj Xtacee feat Okizona and ultimately, The IDGAF Mixtape Vol. 1 is one to definitely look out for
