Self-proclaimed king of African Trap Music, Emtee, is back and in full-on album mode.
On Friday, the Ambitiousz Entertainment dropped the Don Laka and Ruff-produced Ghetto Hero, the harbinger to his sophomore album expected to be out later this year.
Ghetto Hero sees Emtee crooning over lush piano keys played by Laka while Ruff adds a few touches of trap by way of booming 808 drums peppered over the heartfelt joint about wanting to be a hero to your hood (like Steve Biko).
The song is brave in that it’s not what you’d expect as a first single. But then again if your debut release goes platinum and snatches three SAMAs, including Record of the Year, you can do what you want.
