Rapper, William Orioha a.k.a 2Shotz is set to release add a quintet album to his decade-old music career. The Hip Hop head famed for his deft delivery in pidgin and English will be making a slight detour on this new project scheduled to hit the streets in August.
Titled, 'I AM William', the 13 track album will be a collection of songs that cut across genres like Rap, Pop, Dance Hall and R & B. The album, portrays 2Shotz one with good command of the English language; he also goes as far as singing on a track titled "Craze For You".
Speaking on the motive for his new works, the rapper says, "this album is to show that William is greater than 2Shotz. 2Shotz is only one part of my creativity and I AM William"
I AM William is a music biography started last year with the release of a single, "Oyoyo" featuring singer YQ. At present two more tracks are in circulation: fast paced "Na U Sabi" and "I AM William". The feel good title track is catching on real fast already following an internet release last week. It has easy-to-recall lines such as "I am the definition of longevity. After I'm gone these streets would remember me, remember he who for so long killing it. I am, I am William".
With an assembly of industry certified producers like M.I, Terry G, Cobhams, Dr Frabz, eLDee, Jesse Jagz, Kash 11 and up comers Jay Smith and Icon, on the album, one can only imagine the magnitude of what he's coming with.
Other tracks on the album include "Make Some Noise" featuring M.I, "Dutty Whine" featuring Shank, "Weda U Like Am", "Are You Not Entertained", "Champion", "Tonite", "Money For Pocket" and "Which Kain Nonsense", where he bares his mind on the present situation of Nigeria's music industry.
Activities lined up to unveil this album include album listening and release parties in Lagos, Warri and Abuja through the month of August. The video for "I AM William", shot by DJ Tee, will premiere at the first listening party in Lagos.
The album will be released by Ummunamu Records.
