Watch The Music Video For ‘Leader of Wave’ by J Molley

New visuals from J Molley.

Young South African rapper/singer J Molley just released the visuals for "Leader of The Wave," the opening song of his latest EP of the same name.

Lyrically, the song is lofty, with J Molley asserting his leadership, stating "No, you can't hug me 'cause this shirt cost 7k," "If I don't know you, we can't work/ Just 'cause you famous doesn't want your verse" and "It's hard to stay above the water when they tryna ride your wave." Basically, J Molley doesn't need anything from you.

And the video depicts those sentiments, especially the scene in which he trashes what looks like a record label boardroom. The new wave doesn't believe in doing things the conventional way, and J Molley as the self-elected leader, is leading by example.

The music video was directed and edited by J Molley himself, and shot and graded by BanzWorldwid.

Sarkodie Is Not Feeling Any Pressure

The elite Ghanaian rapper affirms his king status with this seventh studio album, No Pressure.

Sarkodie is one of the most successful African rappers of all time. With over ten years of industry presence under his belt, there's no question about his prowess or skin in the game. Not only is he a pioneer of African hip-hop, he's also the most decorated African rapper, having received over 100 awards from close to 200 nominations over the span of his career.

What else does Sarkodie have to prove? For someone who has reached and stayed at the pinnacle of hip-hop for more than a decade, he's done it all. But despite that, he's still embracing new growth. One can tell just by listening to his latest album, No Pressure, Sarkodie's seventh studio album, and the follow-up to 2019's Black Love which brought us some of the Ghanaian star's best music so far. King Sark may be as big as it gets, but the scope of his music is still evolving.

Sonically, No Pressure is predominantly hip-hop, with the first ten tracks offering different blends of rap topped off with a handful of afrobeats and, finally, being crowned at the end with a gospel hip-hop cut featuring Ghanaian singer MOG. As far as the features go, Sark is known for collaborating mostly with his African peers but this time around he branches out further to feature a number of guests from around the world. Wale, Vic Mensa, and Giggs, the crème de la crème of rap in America and the UK respectively all make appearances, as well as Nigeria's Oxlade, South Africa's Cassper Nyovest, and his fellow Ghanaian artists Darkovibes and Kwesi Arthur.
