Spotlight On
Named after the England and West Ham footballer, “Declan Rice” is characterised by its smooth flow and hard-hitting delivery, and was even cosigned by the defensive midfielder who says he’s a massive fan of ODUMODUBLVCK track.

First To Know
“Being chosen for the cover of April’s RAP LIFE is not only a win for me but a win for rap and hip-hop in Nigeria,” ODUMODUBLVCK tells Apple Music. “It’s an even bigger win for my city Abuja, because we can sometimes be overlooked and put in second place within the music industry in Nigeria.”

Last Word
“Two years ago, I told my supporters that the time was coming for rap and hip hop in Nigeria. Now is the time to change the game, the time to open the eyes of many. A big shout out to Apple Music and to my label Native Records for trusting me to lead a new wave. Let the new era begin. Now!”

Playlist
Rap Life Africa serves as a companion to Apple Music’s flagship hip-hop playlist, Rap Life.
