Finnish hip-hop sensation Gracias returns today, with a video for the much anticipated first cut from his forthcoming second album Elengi!
‘Levels (Stream Fast, Die Young)’ is the first we’ve heard from Gracias – also known as Deogracias Masomi – for a while. He’s an artist who first rose to our attention back in 2011 with the release of his debut EP Gracias EP, featuring songs such as ‘HKI’ and the critically acclaimed track ‘Mon€y’. The Helsinki based rapper then went on to release his debut album Globe and his follow up is due to drop in May through excellent Finnish label Cocoa Music (home to other rising hip hop artists such as Noah Kin and Biniyam).
This latest single gives us a tempting taste of what to expect from Gracias’s forthcoming album, and crowds attending Tallinn Music Week this weekend will be able to catch the artist live with the Globe Band at the Tallinn Music Week hip hop showcase on the 29th March.
Until then, check out this fantastic, poignant new video from Gracias exclusively here at Ja Ja Ja, and check back for more details about his forthcoming album release soon!
