There’s a new dynamic duo of hip-hop in town, and you best get ready for them. Viral Nigerian rapper Thutmose has united with the German-Trini singer NoMBe for an EP that fully lives up to its title, Run Wild. Making its world premiere right here on Highsnobiety, give a listen to your new late summer sonic sensation below.
If the title track sounds familiar to you, it’s most likely due to its huge inclusion as the theme to the EA Sports FIFA World Cup game. The EP is but the latest in a successful string of collaborations between Thutmose and NoMBe, a logical next step from their hugely-hyped genre hybrids. “I haven’t heard anything like this,” says Thutmose of the EP, “The fact that we are smashing two genres together is a special moment.”
