L.A.C.E. (which stands for Lyrical Ability Controls Everything) is one of Nigeria’s hot new rappers on the block. His single, serendipitously named “On The Block” caught the attention of the 360Fam and Nigerian music lovers when we featured it in March, 2011 and we have all been nodding our heads and dancing (or at least, trying to), ever since.
The video is un-enamoured by the typical bling-bling which has become the status quo for hiphop music videos nowadays. Rather, L.A.C.E is seen to be coming out of the not-too-glamorous block of flats in the now immortalized ‘FESTAC town, FESTAC town…‘ suburban region of Lagos.
Fueled by a saccharine hook carried rather enthusiastically by Miss Vanessa Morris, a budding vocalist on his Fly Fellow Records label, L.A.C.E. might just be the rapper to watch in 2011.
Yup! Remember to always Rep Yo Hood!
