It’s not every day we stumble across convictive Hip Hop which is simultaneously warm, inviting and ambiently vibing as Sino Ako’s latest release “DopeBoy”. You won’t be quick to forget the accordant attack on romantic wasters. If TLC’s iconic track Scrubs had a 2020 equivalent, it would be DopeBoy.
With Rap bars which will leave you transfixed with their soulful yet undeniable command resting on the lush dreamy beats, you can consider the East London-based artist’s sophomore release a vibe-out Hip Hop playlist essential.
But you’ll want to pay close attention to the lyrics which are versed through Sino Ako’s catchy and magnetic vocals. Within each of her releases, Sino Ako pours in unfiltered candid expression which opens up conversations over mental health and other prevalent issues.
It should go without saying that artists like Sino Ako are worth their weight in aural gold right now.
You can check out DopeBoy for yourselves by heading over to Spotify where you’ll also catch her debut single Slow It Down.
