The last year has held a lot for ODUMODUBLVCK. Shortly before he put pen to paper on a contract with Native Records, he already made on an impression on fans and listeners with banging records and an engaging social media presence. BOUNCE caught with him late last year, and that conversation let us in on ODUMODUBLVCK’s mind-state and his determination to conquer all through his music. He talks the talk and walks it even better; it would seem that he is on the verge of his breakout season.
His latest release, “Declan Rice” is genuine anthem. Snippets of the record surfaced online, and it soon spread like wildfire, infecting those who came in contact with it. Fans spent weeks clamoring for the record to be released and were even seemingly disappointed at its March 24th release date; but it only did more to whet the appetite of his keen, watching audience.
Trill Xoe supplied the production for “Declan Rice”. The record’s mid-tempo bounce and heavy kicks will surely evoke head bops and slow whines, but it is really a battle cry that will cause euphoric chaos at concerts and festivals. The lyrics are simple but powerful, making it easy to memorize and giving it great replay value. Whether you like to dance or mosh, “Declan Rice” has something for everyone, and this release has the potential to be a huge moment on the Nigerian music scene.
ODUMODUBLVCK has spent years preparing himself for this moment. He constantly manifests what he wants, making declarative statements about exactly how he wants to take the world by storm. To blow up as a rapper in Nigeria requires the artist to have a unique sound and charisma, a combination that the “Dog Eat Dog” crooner possesses. It remains to be seen just how wide the spread of his Okporoko sound can reach, but the fact remains that ODUMODUBLVCK is hard to ignore.
