After dropping a plethora of solid singles and a mixtape last year, Philadelphia-raised rapper Tunji Ige has remained pretty lowkey in 2017… well, until now that is. Tunji returns in full force for his latest single “Thing 4 You.” The aggressive club-ready beat produced by Tunji himself contains wavy synths and dance-inducing rhythms. Those same producer skills got him behind Khalid’s multi-platinum single “Location,” and now Tunji’s getting high off his own supply of banging beats.
The sheening production on “Thing 4 You” doesn’t outdo Tunji’s skills as a rapper and vocalist, though; in fact, his auto-tuned flows only get elevated as a result. On the second verse, as trap horns blare in the background, Tunji rides the beat with an air of nonchalance. When it’s time for the bridge, he harmonizes with the distorted synths, cutting through the track with impeccable sharpness.
Prior to dropping “Thing 4 You,” it had been nearly a year since Tunji released new music. With that said, expect more from the Philly-based artist soon.
