It’s been a while since we’ve heard anything from Soto since he dropped his acclaimed single ‘Hustle’ last year, but the young rapper more than makes up for his absence by returning with a spunky, irresistible street-banger titled #OnyeEgwu. Produced by fast-rising PH City beatmaker Kay-X, Soto delivers his signature gritty flow; starting off as a composed, albeit cheeky word slinger before switching gears and transforming into the fire-breathing, street smart hustler persona that he has come to be identified by.
#OnyeEgwu features additional production by longtime collaborator Reflex Sounds, and with this sophomore offering Soto makes no bones of his intention to stage a takeover in Nigerian hip-hop. Indeed, it would seem that spending the last year in the recording booth has seen the rebirth of the Coal City emcee as Onye Egwu– a personification of music itself – and if he delivers more gems such as this, very little will stand in his way. Get familiar with the future. Soto is currently signed to a fast-rising to Eon Entertainment.
