Jamal Swiss - Based On True Events EP



The 12-track EP starts on a high with the track ‘Stupid’ featuring the poet, singer and songwriter Davina Oriakhi, showing his prowess as a rapper.

Swiss takes it mellow in ‘Black Corolla’, where he celebrates being free and enjoying himself ride on the freeway in his black whip.

With ‘Professional friends’, Jamal gives a shout out to friends in his professional circles, clearly acknowledging all who have contributed to making his dream of putting out good music a reality.

Jamal Swiss could almost be looked at as a poet as you may observe on the song ‘High’.

He shares his love life in ‘Zion’ while preaching self-love in ‘Selfish’, dwelling on some good soft Trap.

'2AM in Lagos' feat. Strizz will get you in that party mood alright, while TTHB feat. Buwa and HD is all about getting your hustle on in the face of obstacles and challenges.

Jama shows just how impressively fast he can rap with words  on the track ‘Yeah 4x’ feat, J.D. This would give you goosebumps, in a good way I mean, ofcourse.

'Everybody' is a laidback groovy track, a feel good song of hope.

'Live life' rounds it all up as he narrates all the admonition given to him by his mother, to let life and live. A complementing chorus from Sasky Mali summarises the story here in this song.

Jamal Swiss shows he is talented at this rap game, and expresses it his own unique way, as hr documents some aspects of his life and also the future he is working on  and envisaging.

This is for the lovers of fine Hip Hop and rap stories, as told by Jamal Swiss based on true events of his life.
