On Friday, 9th November, 2018, Mr Eazi gave all music lovers a gift by way of a new body of work. It was the release of his “Lagos to London” mixtape.
The mixtape boasts of features from Simi, Burna Boy, 2Baba, Diplo, Lady Donli, Distruction Boyz, Maleek Berry, Giggs, among others and it comes after his ”Life Is Eazi, Vol 1 – Accra to Lagos” mixtape, released in February, 2017.
The 15-track “Life is Eazi, Vol. 2 – Lagos to London” is packed with very powerful songs.
Even though this mixtape is not essentially based on African sounds, which is probably why it’s titled “Lagos to London”, it goes on to impress.
It starts of off with heavy African vibes with the Lady Donli assisted intro “Lagos Gyration”, “Surrender” which features songstress Simi, “Suffer Head” featuring 2Baba and simmers well into the Burna Boy assisted “Miss you die” which will most likely become fans’ favorite.
Previously released singles “Property” and “Keys to the city” brings in the dearly beloved afrobeats sound and solidifies it’s importance to African music, it’s music creators and fans both in and outside the continent.
The latter part of the mixtape has features from Chronixx, Sneakbo, Giggs and Lotto Boys, all artistes based out of London.
In all “Lagos to London” mixtape explores influences from Lagos and London and does this with an immense variety of artistes across these divide.
It is a story of love, money, experience, and relevance and Mr Eazi delivered in all 15 tracks.
