UK-Nigerian Rapper Aina More Celebrates 'Girls Killing It'

London-based Nigerian lyricist Aina More and Ghanaian producer DJ Juls come through with an ode to women in "Girls Killing It."


London-based, Nigerian-bred lyricist Aina More connects with Ghanaian-UK producer DJ Juls in "Girls Killing It," a head-nodding track "celebrating the achievements of women," she explains, "Not as what/who they are once all the superficial or material connotations have been added, but celebrating Girls Killing It for outstandingly being themselves and pushing forward whilst also being inspirational to other men and women.” "Girls Killing It," which follows Aina's recent For People With Short Attention Spans EP, sees the rapper going in over a throwback groove built on drum breaks and guitar samples. The single boasts artwork that repurposes J.D. Okhai Ojeikere's iconic Nigerian Hairstyles photography series. Stream Aina More's DJ Juls-produced "Girls Killing It" below.
