Eritrean Rapper Negash Ali, A 'Millennial Man' With A 'Wandering Soul'

Danish-Eritrean MC Negash Ali releases new EP 'Millennial Man' and shares the steely visuals for it's lead track "Wandering Soul"


Danish-Eritrean rapper Negash Ali releases his latest project Millennial Man along with a new music video for his single "Wandering Soul," an emotive track which sees the MC bearing his soul through poised melodies and forthright rhymes. In the video, the spirited rapper is shown delivering his introspective lyrics amidst dark and hazy surroundings. "'Wandering Soul' centers around being what it feels like to be new in a big city, scouring the place for energy and documenting the sensations, which is my favorite thing on earth to do," mentions the burgeoning MC. "Wandering Soul" is the lead track from his 4-track Millennial Man EP, which the rapper says "portrays the modern man, who has a lot going for him but somehow manages to make melancholy his object of affection. As if the world around him has made him numb.” Watch the visuals for "Wandering Soul" and stream Negash Ali's Millennial Man EP in its entirety below.

Interview: Wavy The Creator Is Ready to See You Now

The multidisciplinary Nigerian-American artist on tapping into all her creative outlets, creating interesting things, releasing a new single and life during quarantine.

A trip canceled, plans interrupted, projects stalled. It is six months now since Wavy the Creator has had to make a stop at an undisclosed location to go into quarantine and get away from the eye of the pandemic.

The professional recording artist, photographer, writer, fashion artist, designer, and evolving creative has been spending all of this time in a house occupied by other creatives. This situation is ideal. At least for an artist like Wavy who is always in a rapid motion of creating and bringing interesting things to life. The energy around the house is robust enough to tap from and infuse into any of her numerous creative outlets. Sometimes, they also inspire trips into new creative territories. Most recently, for Wavy, are self-taught lessons on a bass guitar.

Wavy's days in this house are not without a pattern, of course. But some of the rituals and personal rules she drew up for herself, like many of us did for internal direction, at the beginning of the pandemic have been rewritten, adjusted, and sometimes ditched altogether. Some days start early and end late. Some find her at her sewing machine fixing up thrift clothes to fit her taste, a skill she picked up to earn extra cash while in college, others find her hard at work in the studio, writing or recording music.
