Few months after the release of his hit track, Jaiye (Time of Our Lives), Mavins Records rapper and growing star Ladipoe drops a new freestyle track, and he has a message for us all. Well, technically two messages, but we’ll start with the most important, right?
In his new freestyle track titled “Devil You Need”, Ladipoe comes hard on the beat with killer rhymes and brilliant puns. He has the air of someone who is very sure of himself. His message is clear: he is the devil you need.
Poe attempts to play with the slang term “Yoruba demon” while stretching it to apply to the rap industry. He’s challenging the rappers of his generation, informing them that he is the next big thing. He doesn’t stop there, he conjures the names of greats such as 2pac, Biggy, Nas, and Dagrin. Is the young rapper overestimating his capabilities? Perhaps not.
The second message? The track says it all, doesn’t it?
Sample line: “I’m tired of arguing with a generation that thinks it’s cooler to sag.”
His delivery on the track matches the claims he makes on it. If anything other growing rap stars around the country should up their games and prove Ladipoe wrong. He might just be the devil they need.
