“Get Some Money” is one of those pieces you listen to and hope for time to tick away. There is nobody really flexing lyrical strength on it, no banging beats as well; rather it is some informative piece of music that rests on the podium of fan acclaim that the trio currently enjoys. Anyhow we look at it though; the song is great given that it serves its purpose.
The fact that Paradigm Initiative Nigeria (PIN) have their weight behind this Ice Prince, Phyno and Olamide offering means it will get some radio time, as well as enjoy some online buzz. Is the song going to break any ice following this? Hard to tell. But one thing we aren’t in doubt about is that in less capable hands, Get Some Money would have been nothing of specific beauty, nor would it enjoy a lengthy attention span.
The song is a plus given its message and theme. But after that, it is basically some lazy wordings put together in haste, with the aim of projecting a message to the senses more than it is to accomplish creativity. Ola and Phyno have struggled to replicate their “Ghost Mode” feat, going as far as jumping on Phyno’s NGNG together yet getting not much off it. The rapper Ice Prince has made many a great song and those who have obsessed over his oeuvre will be crazed were there to be an incredible joint with Ola and Phyno. And frankly, we can’t wait, because in all; listening to this new one shows us how much the Jos Rapper isn’t at his most lyrical. Neither are Ola and Phyno.
I think of it as too similar to everything out there today. Not to downplay their collective brilliance and creativity but I feel like they could have done more, as this is all too similar to already popular template.
Listen and rate, a Hit or a Miss?
