Have you ever thought of food references made in music and how metaphoric they tend to be? Do you think this makes hip hop even more literary? Being a dedicated foodie, I sat down to write and talk about my favourite food inspired lines. The thought hit me when I re-listened to Play01’s “Ova” – njenva Kachumbali abaako ova”
Mickey Solo Pif
NTM /Ntinda Movement artists Pryce Teeba, Mickey Solow and Mickey Solo have teamed up on new “Enkovu” to tell us that they are the best that are doing it in this thing called rap. In Kenya “Kovu Challenge” has been trending that Khaligraph Jones and other Kenyan artists where spazzing, like it was the rap(o)lympics.
The three rappers offer us an impressive UG feel to this Kenyan challenge. “Enkovu” is the latest we have listened from NTM as a collective so far, which is andimirable music awareness in the EA.
Listen to the track here:
Who killed it ?
“143” has an official Video. Mickey So-Low, one half of PIF is undoubtedly not dropping the ball for his solo career with the tremendous work that he is pushing and crafting.
Christopher Kobel made yet another visual impression for Mickey SoLow. The Google Beats produced and J45 mastered track is one catchy and Rich project that will soon be seen on your TV.
Chris always goes for minimalist but important cuts and within the frame details and “143” works out with simply Mickey and a vixen at one location but with various rich. scenes

It is never a cool thing to tell artists what to do, when and where. The American producer/rapper Dr. Dre on his 2015 album he raps on Deep Water “Would you look over Picasso’s shoulder and tell him about his brush strokes?” This is a clear attitude that an artist who believes they are great …
Forget the easy come easy go there she goes on “Gone” Mickey SoLow; “143” is a beautiful Ode that evokes the melodic Muntu SoLow. I wanna love you, every day n night…/ Keep it real never lie/ On my mind,you blow my mind… What a firm opener for a song, that allows Mickey to get …

King is the latest single from Mickey So-Low off his forthcoming full-length project. He released the audio last week. The J 45 produced track has officially got a visual released. Inner Heights once again shoots and directs the video. It is shot at an unnamed location, a hilly spot. The costume design for this visual …
King is a fresh release from Mickey SoLo off his forthcoming mixatape CC. It has been about a year since he released an individual track.
Earlier on this year Habo a fellow NTM member dropped his EP, Love The Trap and SoLo had a verse on Foreign – that is the closest we had heard from Mickey. King is a new version of Mickey as he raps in both Nubi, English and Arabic.
The single is released under Mona House, a studio based in Ntinda that most NTM members make most of their projects. It was also home to Sliq Teq who apparently left the group.
Mickey hasn’t confirmed what CC stands for and when the tape would be released. For now get the audio below as we wait:
Stories connect us, stories build us, stories build us and we are a story! If you agree then you know the deal. 2017 was an amazing year that we will remember in one way or another by certainly telling stories about the gone year. Hip Hop for decades has always been synonymous with stories and …
The song basically talks about the trap life in Ntinda. Mickey offers an extended insight of the ‘Trap life‘ or metaphors designed around the trap.
