Watch Mr Eazi & Tyga's New Music Video For 'Tony Montana'

"It's an announcement of my transition from Mr Eazi to Don Eazi."

Mr Eazi comes through with a major link up in his new single and music video for "Tony Montana," featuring Tyga.

The addictive new single is lead by Eazi's allusions to feeling like Scarface over a smooth Killertunes beat. Tyga comes in to deliver the second verse, but Eazi's catchy hook is the highlight here.

"The energy of the record defines where I am right now in my head. It's like an announcement of my transition from Mr Eazi to Don Eazi. Once Killertunes (the song's producer) sent the record, it was an instant connection," Mr Eazi mentions.

The song comes accompanied by a new music video that follows both Eazi and Tyga delivering their verse from Scarface-inspired rooms.

"I had two possible records I wanted to do with Tyga, one uptempo and this one, and he was attracted to this one more naturally," Mr Eazi continues. "Working with Tyga has been a true collaboration—from writing to mixing, mastering and the video—I'm learning so much from him."

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.
