Chisom + Burna Boy :"Soke" Remix | 'Melo' EP - Coming Soon


Fresh off the release of his debut EP The Jordan Year, and the RESPECT Mag premiere and https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dnDdxGsYDuM of lead single “Africa Get Money”, Detroit-based rapper/producer Chisom is back to usher in Spring ’16. This time, he delivers a suave remix to “Soke” by Nigerian Dancehall star Burna Boy.

On the “Soke” Remix, 23-year-old Chisom and Burna Boy trade bars in three languages, as Chisom puts his unique spin on the hit record, switching effortlessly between rapping and singing in Igbo and English (complementing Burna Boy’s Yoruba). This is truly international Hip Hop at its finest.




Chisom (Chisom Uzosike) is a 23-year old producer, rapper and creative director, born in Detroit and raised in Maryland. He’s the eldest son of Nigerian immigrants, and the first in his family born in America. While his father exposed him to music from all corners of Africa in the house, young Chisom discovered Hip Hop in elementary school, where his classmates introduced him to Baltimore’s local Hip Hop/R&B station.

Chisom began producing Hip Hop music at 17, inspired by stars like DJ Premier, The Neptunes and Kanye West. Drawing from his love of music of all genres, his keen ear for samples and his Nigerian roots, he quickly developed a striking, eclectic style. His work has been praised by music critics and featured on Sway in the Morning, Chuck D's AndYouDon'tStop!, The Fader, RESPECT Mag, Nigerian Sounds, and more.

Gifted with a smooth flow and deep, resonant voice, Chisom combines slick wordplay with real-life themes and vibrant production. His cultural/musical influences shine through every song: the verbal dexterity and swagger of the East Coast, the entrancing rhythms of Afrobeat, and the ultra cool, laid-back attitude of the West Coast.
