Back Seat is L€vi’s latest full length project. The producer and rapper offers a boom bap meets modern Hip Hop on this 10 tracks mixtape with distinct samples and melodies. It offers a taste and insight in his world. He raps political, to self made kind of vibes, the grind pays tales too. He features fellow members of Zagang.

It is pertinent that Back Seat is L€vi’s current canvas to paint his aspirations, life and inspiration. One moment you will hear him “Mobbing like ASAP” a comment on the Mafioso persona. The project becomes cinematic because of the soundtrack ready tracks as he tells stories from Namuwongo back in the day, getting off and back on his feet. Life off and on the edge.

The tape is up and close and mostly personal. Yes it’s him in the back seat regardless whether it’s a Safe Boda as symbolised by the track “Martin Luther Whip”.
