Video Premiere: Remi Kolawole “Saggin.”

Freshman lyricist Remi ‘REMi’ Kolawole is on our watch list this year. The Melbourne-bred rapper/singer has a diverse style coupled with rhythmic rap flow, fusing various tempos and instrumentation with hooks that stick like glue. On the back of releasing two EP’s in 2011 (‘Childish’ and ‘Five Beats I Love’) the 22-year-old’s debut 2012 album tiled, Regular People Sh#%t, Remi showcases his balance of singing and rapping, while acutely injecting it with pop-cultural references and throwbacks. Press play on the Bruno Mars meets early Kanye West video for “Saggin.”:
