Smallzz Tha Razor: Listening to indigenous sound as a child shaped my music
Fast rising music act, Oluwatoyin Adeyemi Ogunmuyiwa, well known as Smallzz Tha Razor, has always had a passion for music right from his childhood days, and he grew up listening to and nurturing his craft from the musical experience of indigenous music; a reason his creativity is seasoned with deep African roots.
Talking about how his childhood has played a key role in his sound and style, the singer said, “I was born in the Fadeyi-Mushin axis of Lagos and I believe I gained my street orientation from there.”
Given his punchlines, word play, rap prowess and his ability to pass a message through his music, which sets him apart from other acts, the emerging star says he would like his music to speak to people.
“I would like my music to serve as a mirror for consciousness and enlightenment. I would like it to show everyone the truth about themselves and the world in general.”
According to Smallzz Tha Razor, his soon-to-be release project with the designate title: More of Me, an extended play (EP), would be available on all digital streaming platforms from April 30. The six track body of work is a master blend of proper Afro sounds, modern rhythms and most importantly, good music.
A preview of project showed the rapper outdid himself, as he worked with some of the best producers and sound engineers including Daihard, DonnyAce, Taleen, Jaychords and DJ Taf. Notable artists such as Bella Shmurda, Martins and 9ice were also featured on the project.
Speaking more on the EP, Smallzz Tha Razor said: “I have a style of having different genres of songs on a project and More of Me is not an exception.”
