I was already into this song when dude started talking about splurging on accessories because he’s too fat to wear designer clothes. His delivery is cool and calm with a bite, and the production is raw. Solid song. Then, at around 2:30, Ikey takes this shit to the next level.

Ikey was born in New York City but spent a lot of his childhood in Nigeria. He now lives in Maryland but still draws inspiration from his experience with Nigerian culture. “Timbuktu” is produced by fellow Maryland native Blvck Rose. Look out for a full-length project this fall. Until then, check out more on his website.
