Ikey - When We Were Kings

  • Artist: Ikey
  • Track: When We Were Kings
  • Producer: Blvck Rose
  • Album: Green Card EP

If you were to ask an average American what they knew about Lagos, Nigeria, you’d probably get nothing but confused look in response—unless they’d been following the ongoing conflicts involving Boko Haram. Either way, that’s hardly a well-rounded view on the city. As a former resident of the city, Booth newcomer Ikey is uniquely suited to offer a little perspective, and that’s exactly what he does on single number three off his next EP. On the Blvck Rose-produced When We Were Kings, making its world premiere on our front page, the artist uses sung and rapped vocals to evoke the glorious past of the place he calls home. Green Card currently lacks a drop date, but y’all will be the first to know when that changes.
