Bawo Reveals More Of His Varied Rap Sound On 'Legitimate Cause' EP

January 31, 2023

West London fast-rising rapper, Bawo has at long last delivered his new tape titled Legitimate Cause.

Over the past few months, he's been incrementally introducing some of the concepts of his tape like romance and heartbreak on "Not Just Yet" and "Same Team". Now the project arrives in full colour as Bawo adjusts his focus to the larger vision of his career.

To contribute to his own production, he's connected with beat makers Kxmal, Oscar #Worldpeace, Rohan Wyn-Frank, Miink, El Londo and Ankit Suri who assist in solidifying his sonic world. Features are kept to a minimal with an appearance from Oscar #Worldpeace and East London Ayeisha Raquel who lays her gorgeous vocals on "Grace Is Calling" just before we dip into a tailor-made UKG bop on closing track "Stay Close".

It's a little over 24 minutes but that's more than enough time to acquaint ourselves with Bawo's top-tier lyricism and conceptual thinking. Take Legitimate Cause for a spin below.
