19-year-old Waterford rapper 7th Obi has dropped his anticipated new seven-track release.

 

In 2016 the young MC dropped his first EP, ‘Warm Rooms’ and since then has been steadily releasing music, linking up with producers Marcus Woods, Siv and LHK.

Recently he was featured in Highsnobiety’s ‘10 Irish Rappers You Need To Know’, which coincided with the announcement that he’d be releasing a full-length project.

He started teasing out material from ‘Taxi Club’ back in September, but now it’s finally here in full. The entire project is produced by the talented LHK, and in terms of lyricism and vocals it’s a coming of age for 7th Obi.

Tracks like ‘Choose A Side’ and ‘Full Green Lambo’ (featuring another excellent artist, Ama) feel like Obi has escaped from the depths of Soundcloud and is ready to stake his claim as an artist on top of the Irish hip hop pile.
