It was a big Christmas gift for his devoted fans! Lil B has surprised fans with a new album for the holidays. On the new LP, entitled Afrikanis, the rapper moves away from his hard-hitting hip-hop sound to devote himself to jazz.
Afrikantis spans 14 tracks, starting with a track called “My Fathers Drums,” which introduces listeners to the California rapper’s new sound, followed by other tracks with evocative names presumably dedicated to some of his loved ones – “A Song for Mom,” “Cricket” and “Kim.“
Towards the end of the album, Lil B pays homage to his hometown with a series of tracks named after various locations in California: “West Berkeley Ca Waterfront,” “Welcome to Oakland California,” and “Park St Alameda California.“
Afrikanis was preceded by Frozen and Frozen Kiss released last June and Thraxxx Kiss released in August. Afrikanis is entirely instrumental, far from the usual hard-hitting verve that Lil B has accustomed us to for many years.
Lil B wrote on his Twitter: “THIS MAY BE ONE OF THE MOST IMPORTANT JAZZ PROJECTS EVER … TAKE UR TIME WITH THIS.”
