Odumodublvck “Eziokwu” Mixtape Review

EZIOKWU

Odumodublvck has delivered on this project amid considerable expectation and anticipation, with the clear promise that the album will set a new benchmark. “Eziokwu,” which translates directly to “Truth,” has a clear objective. This 14-track project includes pre-released songs including “Declan Rice,” “MC Oluomo,” “Firegun,” and others, as well as carefully selected guest appearances from some of the industry’s best.

“Eziokwu” is more than simply music; it’s an immersive experience that promises to captivate listeners with its combination of enticing sounds and hard hitting lyrics. This mixtape demonstrates Odumodublvck’s artistic development and makes an indelible mark on the music landscape.

The Slawn-designed art features two painted heads of Odumodublvck, one with his signature beanie and the other without. This could suggest that when he gazes at his reflection, he confirms himself as “Eziokwu,” the truth.

Tracks and Features

“Commend” gets the mixtape started with Odumodu telling us about his dealings and doings with the ladies and how serious they are on his matter because he is a big spender. And thank goodness rap worked out because imagine Odumodublvck as a full-time gigolo? He’s still proud of being one on the side, though. The nice Okporoko melodies and the authentic expression in his delivery carried the song. Then comes the globally acclaimed hit, “Declan Rice,” where the rapper dips a hand in his bragging bag and pulls out very hard flows that shits on his foes. He would rather do right by his homies in place of sticking to freaking industry policies! Now, we all know this track wouldn’t amount to much without that outstanding production from Trillxoe. His flowers won’t hand out themselves.

We move from there to another star attraction on the mixtape, “Kubolor,” which stars the phenomenal Amaarae. It’s actually insane how talented that woman is. Her contribution to this record gives it a unique boost, adding her own dash of melody spice to the already sizzling bowl of melody Odumodublvck attacked the beat with. Both artists freely express themselves in their lyrics, each talking about their different lifestyles and stuff and catches their fancy.

He leans more to his singing side on “Adamma Bekee,” where he muses over his lover and also doesn’t fail to brag, though in the most unserious manner. Great melodies, wonderful production. And that backup singer deserves the world.

Just pause for a sec and imagine you’re at an event and you notice a young man pacing and sweating for minutes on end. Let’s say you get worried, so out of curiosity, you go over to him and calmly ask if everything is alright. Responding to you, he stops pacing and out of sore frustration, tells you he just wants to “Shoot And Go Home.” You think he’s playing till he shows you the shinning piece under his shirt. That’s the exact same energy Odumodublvck brings to the song. You hear his hunger and anger in his raps, which is also not lost on the producer, who brings nothing else but scorching heat. If afro-cultism was a song, this would be it. Dude makes you watch your back while listening to his music.

Bad Boy Blaq himself joins the conversation in the inspirational “Tesla Boy.” Both rappers flex their versatility in their verses. While Odumo sings and raps, Blaqbonez sing-raps and shares some personal stuff in the process. Odumodublvck also does the same when he tells us about his new whip. This must be how it feels to be finally getting a huge bite out of the good life after making it through crazy shades of suffering. Props to the producer for crafting the perfect beat for the perfect vibe.

Fast-rising 1, Bloody Civilian and American rapper, Wale link with Odumodublvck to splash some “Blood On The Dancefloor.” And they make a big, infectious splash. He gets into more of his superstar lifestyle in “Firegun” with none other than the Fireboy himself, who dishes some of that nice afro-fusion vibe.

Reeplay, PsychoYP, Cruel Santino, Teezee and Bella Shmurda all make appearances in different tracks. Rightfully closing the mixtape with his guys, Zlatan and ECko Miles in his breakout hit, “Picanto,” Odumodublvck wards off his enemies and embraces the crazy perks of his lifestyle.
