about

"Psychedelic & Afro-futurist rap artist,lojii(formally uhlife), is merging the street with the spirit realm and giving a middle finger to babylon with his new booming single “no ebola,” produced by Soulection beatsmith, NiceGuyxVinny.

“no ebola” summons the vibe of a dark and haunting dub loop (dub, not dub-step), and features a deep and resonating bassline bundled with thumping kicks and echoing snares. As the hook comes into play, a ghostly synth also joins the dance. All kudos go to NiceGuyxVinny for the rich atmosphere. Floating in the midst of this spacious and minimal medley is lojii, seamlessly weaving the thoughts and tales of a lost hustler with praises to yoruba deities (known as “orishas”) and hexes for shallow rappers. Mix the dub music of King Tubby, the grit of Heltah Skeltah, and the spirit of AfroPunk in a blender and you’ll get this song. "

"Few tracks can match the spareness of “No Ebola,” a new song from the rapper lojii and Soulection's NiceGuyxVinny. The beat is little more than loping rim shots; occasionally there’s a satisfying flicker of bass. “I wasn't sure what I was going to do with [the instrumental],” Vinny tells FADER in an email. “lojii heard it, told me to keep it how it was, not to do too much.” The stripped-back approach gives plenty of space for uhlife’s rapping, which is fitting, because he has a point to make. “I wrote the song with the intention of letting the powers-that-be know that myself and other peoples of melanin in the struggle won’t be squashed out easily,” he notes. “No matter what evil forces they try to implement against us.” Don’t let the laid-back vibe fool you."

"Rapper lojii and Soulection producer NiceGuyxVinny put the less is more theory to the test with this new jawn, “No Ebola.” The Philly emcee drops this haunting new track over the stripped down production of NiceGuyxVinny. lojii explains to Fader that the simplicity is intentional in order to make sure the message in his lyrics is not missed:" Real message, dope song"
