Hailing from Lewisham, South-East London rapper Namani has unveiled his debut EP The Sommer Pack.
Spread across 7 tracks, the 18 year old wanted to create a summer-esc vibe; “No doubt this year has been crazy to the point where the best season of the year, summer (in my opinion that is) doesn’t feel like it. So with this debut project from track 1-7 all I’m trying to do is create a summery vibe for everyone listening” said Namani.
Using this project to influence positivity, knowledge and a form of escape from the madness that 2020 has been so far, he also commented; “So although the project is meant to be good vibes, I think I would be a fool if I didn’t acknowledge what has been going on in the world, especially recently. Ayo Anibaba a.k.a Jig has always been an inspiration to me. He’s sort of like my mentor and he’s got a clothing brand called ‘prosper’ on which every tee has the phrase “your revelations will inspire revolutions” is printed. That phrase speaks volumes of what has been going on lately, with the black lives matter protest and the fact that people are finally waking up to just how messed up the world is. I’m no activist but I feel like we all have a duty to right all the wrongs of the past. I thought it was a good way of voicing the thoughts that we have all been thinking. I imagine in a few years from now the topic will still be relevant and so i think it’s important for everyone to take a stand. The way I see it, if jig inspired me, he can inspire anyone.”
