Priddy Ugly Has A Lot To Say In His First Song Since Leaving Ambitiouz Entertainment

Listen to Priddy Ugly's new song "Reminder II."

Today, Priddy Ugly released a song titled "Reminder II," his first song since his 2017 debut album E.G.Y.P.T. It's also the first song he released since leaving Ambitiouz Entertainment, the label he signed to last year, and released his albums through.


In the song, the MC does what we fell in love with him for, and that's rapping like his life depends on it. The song is a sequel to "Reminder To Myself," which Priddy dropped three years ago. The sequel is as introspective as its predecessor. Priddy gives himself a pep talk, reminding himself (and us) how great he is, and how much he still has to achieve.

He claims to be the greatest in continent, and brushes his haters off, rapping, "Common sense, I don't need no compliments/ 'cause really, all I get is compliments/ I give a fuck about a hater in my comments section."

He also lets us know that his song "Smogolo" from E.G.Y.P.T is still going to be bigger and that he will win a South African Music Award (SAMA) ("By summer time, 'Smogolo' will have the summer lit/ Already prep'd my speech for my SAMA win"). Obviously, a video is on the way.

"Reminder II," just like "Reminder To Myself," has a mellow instrumental, making sure the listener's focal point is what the man is saying. "Reminder II" is the rap fan—Priddy doesn't run out of similes and metaphors, so you are guaranteed to play it back over and over again, just like I did.

Bobi Wine's Release Detailed in Latest Episode of 'The Messenger'

Trauma is the topic on the podcast's latest episode: "The Ballot or The Bullet."

The latest episode of The Messenger is something to behold.

Created by Sudanese-American rapper Bas, The Messenger throws the spotlight on the thunderous circumstances many African countries face, with a close focus on Ugandan politician Bobi Wine.

In his most recent traumatic experience, Wine and his wife Barbara Itungo Kyagulanyi were released from a nearly two-week military house arrest following the ruling of a Ugandan court. Keeping up with current events and circumstances that Wine finds himself in, the latest episode of the podcast recounts the traumatic events that led to Wine's very public abuse and eventual house arrest.

Upon his release, Wine spoke with The Messenger and had this to say, "I want to remind the world that we went in this election knowing how corrupt the staff of the electoral commission is. We saw this through the campaign and the world saw how much was oppressed, how biased and one sided the electoral commission was, and how much it was in the full grip of General Museveni. And therefore we are going to test every legal test, we shall take every legal test. We shall take every legal step. And indeed we shall take every moral and morally proactive, nonviolent, but legal and peaceful step to see that we liberate ourselves. The struggle has not ended. It is just beginning."
