Emmanuel Edili aka DaCapo, Nigeria’s top rapper and hip hop producer comes to America and stamps his presence as Africa’s number one mc. This captivating lyricist who has produced over twenty albums and thirty hit singles with some written to his credit as well as record sales of over 500,000 copies in Africa is now set to take the front stage in America side by side with hip hop greats. This rapper, musician, producer and songwriter, is out to yet again prove that hip-hop is universal, introducing a style of production which he calls “Fro Beat” that has a unique blend of fat beats and an African flavor and delivering rhymes and metaphors which represents where he comes from and what he’s been through while still presenting it in a way that you can identify with. “This is hip-hop with an African perspective and a real positive delivery” says this native Nigerian that’s had his fair share of the hood being raised in Brooklyn in his early days and went back to his country with his parents to spend the next couple of years discovering himself, fine tuning his skills, going through the streets the struggles and the strains and still coming out the person which he says has found his purpose for living. “I been through a lot says DaCapo and I don’t wanna make fat beats and just put anything on it, I’ve learned from life and I know I got something positive to give to whoever chooses to listen”. “You cant help but listen cos I come through in a way that’s very inviting so whether it’s a fro beat, a dirty south beat, a club beat, hardcore or commercial, its gotta be positive cos that’s who I am”. His gospel album called “Simply DaCapo” received two nominations in the best rap album and special event CD categories of the 2007 gospel stellar awards. However DaCapo is going main stream with his next album that’s got some hot singles like “we ridin”, “African boy” and “the beat goes on”. DaCapo is the first MC to rap on a grand piano, somewhat like a hip hop John Legend. The folks who saw this performance at the stellar awards pre show were stunned to see someone on a grand piano rapping and still maintaining perfect rhythm and I tight flow. So better keep you’re ears open to Africa’s number 1.
