ZagaEmpire – The inspiration behind Your last single “RUDE BOY”
– RudeBoy is a song I composed even before I released Ain’t Gat No Time (Pepenazi’s cover). I heard the instrumental on a friends phone and noticed Its cool because I was already rhyming to the beat while listening to it for the first time. So I did a rough recording of the song on my laptop, I shared the song with my friends and they liked the chorus because it’s easy to relate with. I was even surprised they grabbed that easily. So they were like “OT, You gast drop this song ” I had no choice than to drop it so I went to the studio, recorded the official version of RudeBoy and it was promoted online. So I say the beat and my friends were the inspiration behind RudeBoy. Download Folaranmi OT – Rude Boy
