Jeriq soars with Afro-Trap in Billion Dollar Dream
After stepping out with his 2020 EP dubbed Hood Boy Dreams, South-eastern Trap Artiste, Jeriq, has now returned with his debut album dubbed, Billion Dollar Dream.
While the young Trap Artiste continues to showcase his stellar penmanship and radical sound direction, his musical debut is actually a vital moment for the African music industry.
While other South-Eastern rappers like Zoro, Phyno, Illbliss, among others continued to blaze the torch for years as apostles of Igbo Hip-hop, Jeriq comes as a breath of fresh air to the scene. H
is Billion-Dollar Dream is more than that of wishful thinking; it is his reflection of self-positivity and his relentless sojourn of using music as a tool to motivate others.
Jeriq, who is popular for his earlier releases such as Hood Boy Dreams, has also released a joint EP with his Yoruba counterpart, Dremo.
The EP which is titled, Ea$t and We$t, was a solid unifier of cultures and perspectives, as their wits and bars confluence over sensational Trap beats.
Billion Dollar Dream features other Hip-hop stars such as Psycho YP, Koffi Jammar the Ghanaian rap sensation, Alpha P, and Dremo. It is a defining statement record about Jeriq’s life experiences, with solid features and a unique sound direction that makes for an interesting listen.
