by Ladi

At first, I wanted to review the album as he does  rap albums (as its ice prince and he’s known as a rapper) but neh. Ice prince (Panshak Zamani),  has two albums out ; EVERYBODY LOVES ICE PRINCE –  2011 and FIRE OF ZAMANI – 2013, and on the 30th of January 2015 he decided  to grace us with this EP. Lets get deep…

CONFESS (04:15):

This here song has a wonderful beat no doubt. The song has Panshak ‘confessing’ how he feels about someone (a woman hopefully), and how she makes him feel too. No major punchlines really, and imagery was quite clear.

Delivery was smooth and alright with wonderful flow. the song is quite accessible.

ELEGUSHI FT JOULES THE KID (03:53):

Turn-up tune right here. This pop song majorly talks about the lounging lifestyle in relation to Elegushi beach. Nothing more, nothing less.

MARRY YOU (03:41):

The third track on the EP talks about his affections for someone and his intentions to get married, preparations and all.

MUTUNMINA (03:54):

The beat to this jam had this northern flow to it; the producer did a good job no doubt. Content wise, I could hear iceprince shouting out to his crew and tells us subtly that they are a force to reckon with. I don’t understand hausa much, neither do I know what ‘MUTUNMINA’ means, but the the song is good nevertheless.

NOBODY GIVES A… (03:42):

You have to give ice credit when it comes to flossing, and on this track he comes out to tell us that he’s still king in that zone. “I go harder than you… nobody gives a fuck about your whip.. your Balenciaga suit”

ONE DAY (03:35):

This song has a peculiar lively beat to it. The tracks centres round the idea of hustling in the ghettos. The general idea that one just has to keep working and one day he will find his breakthrough (can I get an AMEN?). He also made shout outs to several people Chopstix, Grip boys, AND MANY OTHERS. “See the gal dem ah eye my nigga till ah drop like a fucking visine ” – ICE PRINCE.

 Overall,  I believes ice prince could have done better. The EP didn’t really have any vivid scenarios painted; neither did it have content and punchlines one would expect from an ‘a-list’ musician. Nice one tho, if staying relevant is the game here,then he aced it. Asides that, ladi will give the EP – 40.

THANK YOU
