South African born Nadia Nakai has been on our radar for a minute after winning the Shiz Niz Mixtape 101 competition & an impressive verse on The Zim All Star‘s super group debut single; Fire. Her talents have always been evident & her style has occupied that lucrative Hip Hop/Pop lane. She certainly has cross over appeal but her output of material has always been too sparse to really capitalize on her potential. Now she has linked up with Psyfo‘s Sid Records imprint & hopefully this will allow her to focus on her music & etch out a following for herself.
On her new single Money, featuring Cashtime‘s Kid X, Nadia professes her drive & dedication to those “Randela’s” where she adopts a faux patois flow that she manages to pull off quite well. Kid X delivers another stellar verse & I really am looking forward to hearing his solo work this year now that he & Smashis have parted ways.
Money is the second single off Nadia‘s upcoming album. You can view the video to her first single Like Me below.
