As a pioneering force in Nigerian hip-hop culture, Chocolate City has played a critical role in shaping the genre and bringing it to mainstream prominence.
The Chocolate City Cypher is a landmark collaboration, symbolizing the fusion of the past, present and future of Nigerian hip-hop. From MI Abaga’s Crowd Mentality to Crown by Loose Kaynon and AQ, down to Blaqbonez’s Emeka Must Shine, we have been instrumental in creating industry-defining moments in hip-hop, consistently delivering groundbreaking music that has shaped the genre’s direction.
Throughout its 20-year history, Chocolate City has remained true to the spirit of hip-hop, focusing on authentic storytelling, lyrical prowess, and community engagement, which are the genre’s core values.
With over 25 Hip-Hop album releases under our belt, this Cypher serves as an ode to hip-hop’s global heritage, acknowledging its roots and expansive journey over the past 50 years.
We at Chocolate City have consistently discovered and nurtured hip-hop talent, shaping the careers of influential African artists.
The Cypher transcends music, it offers insightful societal narratives and commentary through the powerful voices of some of the biggest hip-hop icons on the African continent.
