Ladies and gentlemen, meet the best African rapper alive. OK, given that E.L was awarded that title by a guy in the intro to his own song, there may be a little bias at play, but once you’ve listened to Touch the Bar once through, I doubt you’ll be in the mood to argue. Enigma handles production duties on this grimy selection, layering arpeggiated synths and string stabs over a head-noddable rhythm section as the Ghanaian emcee/beatsmith emphasizes his unstoppable drive to conquer the game: “Apart from Jesus, Mohammed, no other prophet can stop me from reaching the top.” This attention-grabbing cut isn’t attached to anything larger, but those feeling it should watch our pages for more from the BBnZ Live signee.
