Atlanta-based rapper Mackgee shares his newest single, "Fun Times." Built on a smooth soulful but bouncy backdrop, Mackgee shares his thoughts on a blossoming relationship alongside vocalist Hues. His laidback flow and vivid lyricism show he is not a slouch with the pen, as even with the commercial aesthetic, one can tell he knows his stuff. Vocalist Hues also help pepper the track with a passionate melodic hook reminiscent of the mid-2000s R&B style and ties it all up neatly. Overall the record is a mid-tempo R&B/hiphop infused track with insightful lyrics and catchy melodies and it's a welcome addition to that evening cruise playlist.
Mackgee is a Nigerian-born, Atlanta, Georgia-based rapper/producer who has been in the game for a while now. He got his start as part of the now-defunct Port Harcourt-based label, Tuck Tyght Records in Nigeria back in the early 2000s but he didn't put out much material under the label before moving to the states. After taking time off from music, the man is back now focusing on his music career. As for an album, nothing has been announced thus far but he has been dropping singles to garner publicity but we just have to wait and see.
