Episode - Apocalypto (Revenge of the Spartans Cover) (GhanaNdwom.com)


When you first  heard the revenge of the spartans  by Sarkodie ,  what were some of the thoughts that went through your mind ? Perhaps this is the best ridden heat on a  hip hop riddim  ever produced in Ghana that cannot matched by any other artist right  ? Well if that was your thought or perhaps you happen to belong to  that  school of thought then  wait  till you listen to Episode’s version of the Revenge of the Spartans named  ” Apocalypto”

It’s still bewildering as to how  the dancehall powerhouse could step up his game , venture out of his known dancehall genre , tame the hip hop  riddim and then murder it without mercy with some of  the hot dancehall lyrical vibes ever to have been spat on any other hip hop riddim in the country.The VGMA 2015  new artist of the year / dancehall artist if the year nominee well know for extreme energy  singing capabilities (attested by Sarkodie ) himself exercised a great deal of maturity and precision as he took his time and bytes by bytes  told a story from where he’s from , the ranks he’s risen through , where he is heading and also gave credit to Sarkodie for leading the path in being the first to massacre the riddim and thus motivating and encouraging him to also have a bite.

Trying to follow the trails of an artist like Sarkodie as a young musician isn’t a move that comes with no much work and hard work more especially when the trailing artist happens to be coming from a different genre altogether but the dancehall Singjay Episode as usual did not disappoint his fans on this occasion as he took his time to apply a master piece of what he is best known for on this “apocalytpo ” project.Apocalypto is accompanied by a viral video and it might interest you to know that the video was directed and edited by Episode making him unique as an artist.Camera works by PerezMusic.
