The melodious EP comprises of five tracks namely: The Beginning, Mwari Mwana, Right There, Meditate and Benediction.The reception of the offering has been readily favourable and the talented rapper is so glad that he could relay the philosophy of Jesus Christ through this exceptional music.
On this project Reap3r collaborated with Kudz Isaac and Wadiwa Musiq. The whole EP was produced by Michael “VI THE LAW” Musekiwa, and with those dope beats, heavy bars and international standard mixing and mastering, and he has managed to set the bar high for his pears in the game.
Reap3r says he got interested in music during his early primary school days and often cites Channel O and the ZBC Afro Beats Music program as something which trained him to listen to diverse music and he fell in love with hip-hop during the days of Eminem’s The Eminem Show and 50 Cent’s Get Rich or Die Tryin’. It was not until 2008, when he was in Form 3 when he startedwriting his own lyrics. Up until he finished high school, he continued writingraps and improving his skills as a rapper.
After high school, the rapper went to study Psychology at the University of Zimbabwe and graduated in 2015. During his tertiary school days, the rapper credits Lupe Fiasco, Blu, Jackie Hill Perry, Skyzoo and Metaphysics as his main muses and this has helped him develop his writing skills as his pen focuses to share the philosophy of Jesus Christ in society. Nowadays he has a plethora of musicaland artistic inspiration so he prefers mentioning how GOD’s creation inspireshim to create the art resonant to the representation GOD gave us.
