Wasp shows versatility on rap freestyle
Dancehall artiste Wasp has re-energised his hip-hop persona with a brand new rap freestyle single on the popular 'Bad and Bougee' rhythm.
The single, New Gyal, is the first release for Wasp in 2017, and can be considered a follow-up to his 2014 song, Tek Weh Bwoy Gyal.
With an extremely potent lyrical flow, Wasp says hip-hop freestyles give him the opportunity to say a lot more than on some dancehall beats.
"I'm definitely a dancehall artiste first, and I know that no one has a flow like Wasp. On the hip-hop beat though, I get to be more unorthodox. No one knows what I'm going to say because I'm a lyrist by nature. So, in the New Gyal freestyle I get to show my versatility," Wasp said.
The single, produced by Jovi DIpree and ZJ Chrome, has been gaining momentum since its release earlier this month, and already Wasp is certain it will garner the same success or more so than its 2014 predecessor.
Wasp also mentions a few popular females in the single, including stage show boss Spice and dancehall newcomer Shenseea.
"I'm just being creative so no one should be offended by me calling their names because it's just showing some popular females love and support. Their men shouldn't get offended either once they are secure in themselves," Wasp added
Wasp has other recently singles also making waves locally, including Hard at Dem produced by Notnice records. He also looks forward to the release of Notnice's Kingston City project for which he has recorded the title track.
