One of the most anticipated albums of the year is finally here. The versatile and talented artiste ''Burna Boy'' singed to ''Aristokrat Records'' who has a mixtape ''Burn Identity'' under his belt and has given us back to back hits over the course of two years, tracks like; ''Abeg Abeg'' ''Like to party'' ''Tonight'' Celebrate'' and recently he released a reggae track titled ''Yawa dey'' which went ballistic over the internet.
Now fans of this future of African's music as i would loved to call him finally released his studio album two days back and if you haven't gotten your copy, you can cope it on iTunes worldwide and i am sure you wont regret it. Initially i was personally skeptical about his consistency despite the fact i loved his Fuji like sound and i was wondering if i would like to hear a full fledged album from this artiste but he kept proving me wrong after every single he releases and now his album is not any different. However, ''Burna Boy'' has some reputable features on this release from the likes of the wonder boy; ''Wizkid'', to the legend ''2Face'', to the Port harcourt boy ''Timaya'' and the rave of the moment ''Olamide'', Africa's rap messiah ''M.I'' and ''Reminice''. The album titled ''Life'' [leaving an impact for eternity] is definitely an artistic creation from this talented lad, from his album cover which kind of reminds me of Hip hop legend Nas classic debut album ''Illmatic'' to the track list which is very vital in making up an album. I would like to say it was an all round 8/10 rating for me and back to the album cover '''Burna boy'' had a faded reflection of music legends from ''Bob Marley'', to Fela Kuti'', then King Sunny Ade'' and ''2pac'' in case you failed to notice, which i consider dope and he probably is tell his fans a bit about his musical influences .
''Life'' is an impressive effort from ''Burna Boy'' which should seal him a spot on top of the food chain in the music industry and hopefully greater artistic contribution from this lad in the future. i beseech you to go out there and get a copy, which i recommend will be one of your best buy of the year 2013.
