New Music Review: ‘Play’ by Wangechi

Almost a year since releasing her Consume: Chakula ya Soul mix-tape, Wangechi has released the first single off her upcoming self titled album.

Play‘ is a feel good Hip-Hop track produced by her mentor Kevin Provoke. Provoke has a way of bringing the live music feel into recorded music. The instrumentals especially the brassy guitar accentuates the already well delivered bars from Wangechi.

This track has us eagerly awaiting for the release of the album. We’re curious to see how much of a departure it will be from from her mix-tape which saw her rap over some old school beats, and we’re also excited to hear Provokes production on this album.
