Sleeper Alert: Jidenna – The Chief

Most famously known for his hit single “Classic Man,” Jidenna has released his freshman album “The Chief” and it’s a true sleeper. 

In a time where only mumble rap and boom bap receives attention, Jidenna took a bold approach and incorporated an African theme in his album.

Although Jidenna was born in states, he was raised in Nigeria until the age of 6. Having a white mom and a Nigerian dad took a toll on his family, as they were frowned upon by the Nigerian natives. After being struck by a failed kidnapping attempt, Jidenna and his family moved back to America to continues their lives.

“The Chief” is an artistic reflection of Jidenna’s reality. Most albums today lack substance but The Chief is the full package. We don’t want to give away too much about the album we attached a link below for you to check it out for yourself.
