PapiGunzo is a hip-hop artist and producer from Nigeria. He discovered his love for music and hip-hop at a young age and has been recording music since 2010. However, he didn’t release his debut single till 10 years later when he shared his debut project, Violets are Blue in 2020. His self-produced rap songs rely on emotive samples that make his introspective lyrics more compelling while he recontextualizes nostalgic boombap rap in a modern melting pot of musical influences.
As an accomplished beat maker, PapiGunzo has worked with some of the industry’s most respected artists like Wande Coal. However, he has remained an underground act, navigating his place as an industry newcomer with an impressive resume to work with. We invited him for our Aux Session to introduce his surgical lyricism with our audience and he didn’t disappoint.
You can watch him perform Intermission for Aux Session below.
