Tunji Ige, a young, Nigerian-American native of Philadelphia, is his own full-service rapper, singer, and producer. On "Dark Liquor," he's rapping about black girls, "white jawns," and "Asian bitches," and the Brandy/Moesha dichotomy. For those familiar with Tunji's music, rife with gendered distrust and general moodiness, it will come as no surprise to learn that the earliest, definitive album of his hip-hop fandom was DMX's It's Dark and Hell Is Hot.
After releasing The Love Project, his self-produced debut album, late last year, Tunji is recently back in the swing of things. His "Dark Liquor" is the lead single and first music video from the Atlanta-based A3C Hip-Hop Festival's latest compilation installment, A3C Volume 5. Previous A3C compilation installments have featured A$AP Rocky, Ab-Soul, Danny Brown, Curren$y, Vince Staples, and a few dozen others.
Watch Tunji Ige's new "Dark Liquor" music video above, and look out for A3C Volume 5, due out Oct. 2. Pre-order it via Bandcamp now.
