Emerging rapper/producer BABYPIKASO shares his single, "Throw it Back," which also comes with an accompanying visualizer to match. The self-produced track is somewhat moody with its monotone synth, 808-heavy kicks, and sparse arrangement. On the record, he delivers a mix of bravado and personal elements that detail his quirky and nerdy persona. From the lessons learned from his grandma and uncle to the derisive comments from his peers who mock his demeanor, BABYPIKASO acknowledges it all and aims to make the best out of these experiences. His style of rapping is a bit off-center as he takes his time with the way he emphasizes words which in turn kind of makes him stand out.
Although he touches on some personal issues, the rapper sure is having fun with the song as his carefree and vibrant personality comes to the forefront. The accompanying visualizer (watch below) is a mix of different animes that he is a fan of. In both the song and video, we can agree that the rapper is doing things on his terms and is not really bothered about conforming to the norm.
BABYPIKASO, whose real name is Augustus Egbokwu, is an American/Nigerian rapper who derives his production style from Pierre Bourne while infusing his funny/meme-infused rap style to carve his path in the industry. "Throw it Back" is just a taste and hopefully we get to see more off-kilter records from the young man.
