Idowest‘s ‘Mafia Culture Vol. 2’ showed brilliance and a meticulous craft exhibition.
However, it simply reveals his hard work and ability to pay attention to sounds and music rudiments, unlike on ‘Mafia Culture Vol. 1,’ where he declares a braggadocious vibe about his affluence, street acceptance, and cruise laughable lines, he was more meticulous to express himself deeply.
Therefore, with the undeniably great commercial lineup, enlisting afrobeat heavyweight Davido, and the new rave of the moment Bella Shmurda, worthy mention with Zlatan then Mayorkun on the hand at the verge of near-perfect listeners choice, also, Patoranking the dancehall king, Mohbad, and Ayanfe who outdid himself.
Meanwhile, he explores Amapiano infused sound in many of the tracks, a little mixed sound.
Also, this project is a testament that Idowest is still even though he’s slightly underrated, no doubt he’s a highly acclaimed street hop act in the Nigerian music industry.
On the album opener, ‘Jah he expresses thanks and gratitude to God, a very pass mark for an opener, it prepares the mind of the listener.
Then Nu level comes up where he traps on the grounding record, the braggadocious expression and flex, somewhat consider a street proclamation and acceptance.
Aso, great his song with Davido serves as a supporting single to the project.
Mayorkun did what he always does, a clear representation of vibes was seen on Kabaa
Ayanfe also carried a lot of vibes from start to finish on Joro, focused on the ballad as the storyline.
Bella Shmurda was so on point on mafia tension a so glaring street banger, memorable street lines from both, great synergies too.
