Listen to Ghanaian Artist $pacely's New Project 'Fine$$e Or Be Fine$$ed'

The La Même Gang member shares his first solo project.

La Même Gang is an urban Ghanaian hip-hop/alté collective based in Accra. The group is made up of six members that include Darkovibes, Kiddblack, Nxwrth, RJZ, $pacely and Kwaku BS.

Today, $pacely is dropping his first solo project entitled Fine$$e Or Be Fine$$ed. The 10-track project shows of the artist's versatile sound and certainly has a number of bangers worth listening to.


Speaking about the new project $pacely tells OkayAfrica that "Fine$$e or Be Fine$$ed is an experimental journey into my mood, every mood has a song. I write about things I see and have been through like love, brotherhood, the struggle."

"I had a chance to go to Nigeria earlier this year which is when I met with a bunch of artists like BOJ and prettyboy D-O, but the earliest song on the EP was "Sweet" which I did with Odunsi a year ago and held onto it for the right time."

The artist adds that, "The tape is very diverse and was influenced by the different producers I worked with like Kuvie, Kayso and Moor Sound to try out new sounds and not box myself to let fans see I do more than trap. It's a piece of me and I hope listeners enjoy it."

From the class uptempo hip-hop beats in "Can't Lose" and "Sweet" to the laid-back sound of "Somimu," this project strikes a good balance between the traditional and the alternative.
