Operating at the intersection of his personal life and involvement in reality shows, Laycon’s sophomore album I Am Laycon reflects his learnings, mood and outlook.
Relaying an array of experiences through expressive lyricism, the project soundtracks a rising star’s journey. While “Underrate” is a peppy Afrobeats jam celebrating progress, Laycon’s versatility shines through on the airy, confessional “Monrovia Hf-531” and the trap-leaning “Love and Light”.
