We’ve seen drill emerging in all parts of the world, including Ghana, and newcomer psiv (pronounced “PS-four”) is the latest rapper to champion the genre from Nigeria.

On the track, over a blistering drill beat, psiv raps about the realities of life where he’s from, touching on oppression and police brutality.

He describes the track as “an insight into life as a Nigerian Youth currently living in Nigeria: protesting against police brutality through the #EndSARS movement in what has become a historic moment where the youth have come together to challenge longstanding forms of state institutionalised oppression.”

Featuring the vocals of a South African mate, Espiquet, ‘Gangland’ is a promising debut single from the Nigerian rapper.
