Roy O – “Foolie”
You wouldn’t expect the best rapper you’ve never heard to be a Nigerian-born resident of Houston, TX. You wouldn’t expect great raps from someone whose notable musical influences are Bob Marley, Fela Kuti and Tupac Shakur. You wouldn’t expect that one of the best albums of 2017 would be a 10-track project, called “OVIE” (pronounced O-vee-yay) which explores an immigrant’s path to self-discovery using vivid lyrics and vast instrumentation. However, part of what makes life interesting and greatness worthwhile is the fact that we never really see it coming! The word “Foolie”, which is also the name of the track included here is an ebonic term which means to be wild, unexpected and unpredictable. Listen to “Foolie” by Roy O. from his recent album ‘OVIE and enjoy the unexpected!
