The wait is over!

Skrypt announces new EP

Windhoek • Michael Kayunde

Award-winning rapper Skrypt has distanced himself from the average artist in Namibia, and the past two years have really highlighted that he has constantly developed and offered something new for all those daring to listen.
Since announcing working on this EP earlier this year and postponing it due to various reasons, his moves have been carefully calculated.
On the sonic direction he took with this project, the rapper said: “The project I started definitely isn't the project that I'm putting out. This one has seen so many different faces. On top of Covid-19, I lost some songs along the way due to technical issues. Sonically, not much has changed. That one would be difficult for me to answer; I'll let the listeners come to their own conclusion on that”.
He shared that he has kept the same formula as with For The Wait, with 10 songs to challenge himself. He added that its harder to put 10 songs together when you want the project to be as cohesive as possible.
“My boy Ezer Mbambus did the cover art,” he mentioned.

Visuals, merchandise and more
On the rollout plan, the rapper said AWMOS will have visuals, merchandise and a show a little further down the line.
“But the most exciting part of this is the videos. I'll be doing something a little different with a few of them. The more we recover from Covid-19, the more tender loving care this project will get,” he said.
AWMOS will be available on all major streaming platforms as well as local radio stations, with provision for physical copies scheduled for January 2021.
“I understand how important those are to fans who collect physicals. I got them too.”

Although he didn’t dive much into the collaborations on this EP, Skrypt mentioned Kp Illest and Waters as some of the artists featured.
“Those came naturally because the three of us have been in the studio so much this year working on our respective projects.
“Production is all international and quite spread out. From my boy Rob in Germany to Katapullt in Latvia, it's a whole lot of international production,” he said.
After listening to this EP, Skrypt hopes his listeners will gain confidence, aggressively pursue their dreams and understand that wisdom comes from making mistakes.
“No one should fear the mistake. Fear not learning from it,” he said.
