Two months ago, following Phyno‘s appearance in Wale‘s video for “Staying Power”, the Nigerian-American rapper took to Twitter to tease a potential collaboration between him and the Igbo powerhouse. Well, the track,“N.W.A”, is finally here, and it’s as good as we expected it to be.
The Iambeatz-produced “N.W.A”, like the title implies, finds both Phyno and Wale rapping about being “Niggas with attitude”, which basically means warning off haters and bragging about their many accomplishments.
On the track, Phyno alternates between English and Igbo on both the chorus and his verses, and it should come as no surprise that he totally delivers. What’s actually shocking is how seamlessly Wale, who delivers yet another fantastic verse, fits on the song.
With every new release, Phyno continues to prove he is one of the best and most consistent Nigerian artists working today. As for Wale, his creative hot streak has been pretty clear all year. We really hope this isn’t the last time these two massive talents collaborate.
