Mr Eazi Something Else EP Download Zip
Having spent the time since Life Is Eazi, Vol. 2 building his up-and-coming artist empowerment platform emPawa Africa.
Mr Eazi returns with a five-track EP reaping the rewards of the entrepreneurial seeds he’s sown. Something Else continues a pioneering blend of Banku music and dancehall, dripping in his trademark languid vocals.
Eazi isn’t shy to experiment with broody trap on “The Don” alongside Benin City producer Killertunes and Jos singer E Kelly, both from his emPawa stable. An Afrobeats call to the dance floor (“Saudi Arabia”) and a laid-back ballad (“Love For You”) show Eazi acknowledging his roots, while the tropical house-tinged “Cherry” features Kenyan-born neo-soul singer Xenia Manasseh, another emPawa artist.
For Eazi, the EP represents a “calm before the storm” as he continues his journey from the artist on breakthrough projects Life Is Eazi, Vol. 1 – Accra To Lagos (2017) and Life Is Eazi, Vol. 2 – Lagos to London (2018) project to a globe-spanning entrepreneur and business visionary.
“I spent the entire year working on building emPawa Africa and morphing into ‘Don Eazi’, the mogul,” MR EAZI says of 2020. “I almost had no time to record. This project was inspired by Kel P and Killertunes, who kept coming to meet me in Accra until I finally recorded ‘The Don.’ That opened the door for me getting back in the studio.”
A dramatic, opera-inspired slice of afro trap “The Don” invites listeners into Eazi’s ever-expanding world, while “Love For You” is vintage Mr Eazi, a tender afrobeats track
