One of Ghana’s formidable music forces, D-Black, after a long hiatus, has bounced back in grand style dropping two massive hit songs in the space of two months.
The business mogul, as usual, released two impressive videos for the two songs – ‘Dat Ting (Toto)’ featuring Joey B and ‘Obiba’ featuring KiDi. The two songs are currently enjoying heavy rotations on radio, TV and on streaming platforms.
Clearly not slowing down, the award-winning rapper has announced Friday that he will be dropping a hip-hop EP in two weeks.
D-Black will be releasing the EP before his highly anticipated fourth studio album ‘Loyalty’.
The seven-track EP titled ‘Smoke & Mirrors’ drops on June 14, 2019.
The EP features soon to be everyone’s favourite track list which features talented acts like Bisa Kdei, Kelvyn Boy, Sefa, Sista Afia and others.
Commenting on the EP, D-Black said ‘Smoke & Mirrors’ was inspired by his journey in the music industry.
“‘Smoke & Mirrors’ essentially means nothing is as it seems. The smoke blurs your vision and the mirrors are a reflection and not always reality. This is EP is 90% Hip-hop and was inspired by my nine-year journey and where I am today. All I learnt coming up from 2010 till now. Had to take it back to the roots, Hip-hop,” he said.
Touching on ‘Tha Bounce’, the first track off the EP, he said: “The Bounce was inspired by a Jay Z record we were vibing to in the studio at home and watching Ryan Leslie’s productions sessions myself, Rony Turn Me Up and DJ Breezy whilst we were working on the album. I wrote some lines on my phone and before we knew it I’d recorded the full track. Hope you enjoy it as much as we did making it.”
