Watch Sarkodie's “Rollies and Cigars” Video
Fresh off the release of his brand-new album, No Pressure, Ghanaian rap superstar SARKODIE has shared the video for the project’s latest single, “Rollies and Cigars.”
Produced by Kayso, “Rollies and Cigars” opens No Pressure, setting the tone for the album with its hard-hitting, triumphant bars. Ghanaian filmmaker Yaw Skyface brings the track to life in the video, which finds SARKODIE ruminating on his hard-won success amidst lavish settings befitting his status as Africa’s reigning rap king.
No Pressure, which dropped July 30th via SarkCess Music, Eagle Plug and Ceek, has earned high praise from a wide variety of media including The Financial Times, Notion and Highsnobiety, which described the album as “Sarkodie at the top of his game, taking his deserved seat at the table of global rap heavyweights.”
No Pressure features collaborations with an international roster of heavyweights including Vic Mensa (US), Giggs (UK), Wale (US/Nigeria), Cassper Nyovest (South Africa), Oxlade (Nigeria) and Harmonize (Tanzania) as well as Ghana’s own Kwesi Arthur, Darko Vibes and Medikal.
This week, it was announced that SARKODIE has joined Sony Music Publishing UK. The deal will significantly expand his international presence while allowing him to maintain his freedom as an independent artist.
