Audio: Fecko the Emecee “Soul Survivor Remix”


I haven’t heard that much by Fecko the Emcee, aka Raplogic, but if this track is any indication, the young rapper isn’t lacking in terms of punchlines and confidence. I will say that he reminds me of the late 90’s/early aughts backpack rap that I listened to in my formative years. The real standout for here might just be Teck-Zilla’s multifaceted production. The sound is tight but varied, and I kept playing the track over and over again just to hear the beat. With rising stars like these in their ranks, the future of Nigerian rap is looking pretty bright.  Listen below, and then download the track for free.  For more on Fecko, check out his bandcamp.
