Rukus has already been widely regarded as one of the best lyricists in Nigeria since his signing with Trybe Records. However, his latest single “Spending My Ego” catches him teaming up with Trybe Records CEO, eLDee, to create one of the most infectious club tracks of the summer. Rukus flaunts his versatility as his flow glides effortlessly over the Kuebounce produced track while eLDee provides a catchy chorus and adds onto his legend status with another stellar feature verse.
The club-infused “Spending My Ego” is new territory for Rukus who has already established a reputation as having some of the most potent punchlines and conscious lyrics in Nigeria’s hip-hop scene; however, diehard Rukus fans will be pleased to see that his lyrical side shines through on his 2nd release which features the airy crooning of the uniquely gifted songstress Simi over another skillfully crafted beat by Trybe in-house producer extraordinaire Kuebounce. The two team up to highlight the difficulties of a high-profile relationship in the smooth pop-smash “Tonight”. Simi handles chorus duties, while Rukus raps about the pressures of stardom on a relationship where he has to leave his girl at home.
Both songs are off Rukus’ soon-to-be released album as he prepares to release even more music before the summer ends.
