A Thousand Hills Prodigy, the Kigalian rapper’s first album under Green ferry Music label, proves he’s no one-hit wonder
Hip-hop has always been a deep repository of rags-to-riches narratives. There can’t have been many more glistening rap fairytales, however, than that of Prime, born Mazimpaka Cheguevara, of Rwandan descent. Raised in Kigali, Prime raps from a controlling relationship.
When it hit the internet on the eve of the album’s release, people started freaking out after the album release one highlight – Mama Am Gone– with Mazimpaka’s sung vocals.
A Thousand Hills Prodigy, then, has two jobs – to keep up the supply of memorable bangers, and to move the Prime story along by demonstrating versatility.
With his furious, instantly identifiable flows (no narcotised mumble-raps here) and his unapologetic determination to break out of the lane he was trapped in, Prime is already doing a great deal to shake up hip-hop.
