Godspeed : Baptism (Prelude)

· by Alain Brunet

Naya Ali doesn’t reinvent the wheel… but she rolls hard! The flow, the sound, the melodic hooks, the trap, the electro, the impudent tone, everything is part of a hip hop continuity. To be more precise, everything fits perfectly into this continuity. Naya Ali masters the form and transcends in its interpretation. Efficient and lived-in, these raps and refrains reach their target unobstructed. The performer and designer belongs to a family of artists who both conform to the standards of their practice and are able to shine in the details, with grooves remain well defined and the MC knows how to fill them out. Godspeed: Baptism (Prelude) is the story of a gestation, a birth, a long, arduous and fascinating process. It is the story of the artist’s moods, of building confidence, of positive, neutral, and negative phases. Hope, a conquering spirit, a building up of sang-froid and free will, as well as doubts, societal adversity, fears, vulnerability, the need to be loved. She’s the kind who forges ahead dauntlessly, and this is the story of Naya Ali’s first conclusive assault on the hip hop landscape. The second chapter is scheduled for release this fall.
