B.O.C Madaki is an elite MC. On his latest album ‘Northy By Nature,’ he hasn’t changed much, but there’s definitely a change to his topics. He still raps in a mix of Hausa and English and his voice and technique are still highly ‘Hip-Hop.’
More than ever before, Madaki is more relatable and his topics are more human, with heavy socio-political conversations that go beyond the Nigerian consciousness. He bears his heart out, discusses his aspirations, his will to succeed, fatherhood and even his vanity as a 30-something year-old Nigerian.
Central to the spirit of this album is 'Matsin Lamba.' Madaki's emotions can be heard in his tone and vocal texture. The beat is like a canvas for his catharsis. He sings that, "I can feel the pressure from every angle... I'm over 30 years, but I ain't never lived in my father's house..."
