If you’ve got 7 minutes to kill (and who are you trying to fool, you’re on the internet, of course you have 7 minutes to kill) then I suggest you get high by proxy with Abba Makama’s off-the-wall introduction to all things Trip City. What is Trip City you ask? Tasti and Sukiyaki, the most colorful Naija rap duo you’ve every seen. Don’t believe me? Well, according to a fan known only by the moniker “Deep Guy,” they’re like yin and yang or some type of “whole rounded entity.” This is only one of many highly energetic, occasionally distorted eye witness accounts. You’ve gotta believe these guys because from what I can see in that video their fans are having way more fun then you’ve had all year.

Originally solo artists, rapper Tasti and rapper/singer/producer Sukiyaki have teamed up for a whirlwind of new school Naija rap. Their first single "Shon Sun" ft. Tunde J (listen below!) is every bit as kinetic as the above video suggests. We’ll be on the look out for more from this new duo, and definitely more crazy videos from Abba Makama.

And remember: don't be sleeping in Texas. Wanna know WTF that means? Check the vid.

The buzzing Nigerian is also announcing her signing to Since '93/RCA Records and her placement as Apple Music's Up Next artist.

Tems is striking while the iron's hot and sharing her new 5-song EP, If Orange Was A Place.

The new release comes a few days after she dropped its lead single, "Crazy Tings," an addictive and bounce-heavy track produced by Ghanaian beatmaker GuiltyBeatz.

If Orange Was A Place also features a single guest appearance from American singer Brent Faiyaz — who lends his vocals to "Found" — and production from Jonah Christian. It was mixed and mastered by Spax.

The new EP comes alongside the news that Tems has signed to Since '93/RCA Records and been announced as Apple Music's latest Up Next artist.

Tems has been a highly-buzzing name in the last month with her feature on Drake's Certified Lover Boy, in which she appears on the song "Fountains," and for the massive popularity of her single alongside Wizkid, "Essence," which recently got a Justin Bieber remix.
