We already know that Scientific, Liberia’s reigning hip hop champ, has bars for days. He can rap a pair of fitted jeans off any lady; his lyrics are well packaged and professional.
During the recent LMA Awards on June 4, 2016, and for the third time in a row, Scientific grabbed the Best Hip Hop Artist award, and there was no publicity around it. If you don’t think that’s something to think on, you should worry because winning so many awards shows Scientific’s ability to work, sound good, put on shows, sign contracts, travel and tour. These qualities are the body of what makes an artist successful. And there hasn’t been any other Liberian hip hop artist who can shake Scientific’s turf as ‘The Best.’
I caught up with him on IMO, thanks to DJ Weego Zico of HottFm, who pinched me that the rap mogul was staying at the same hotel as he was. According to the two, they’re in Ivory Coast, Abidjan, in preparation for the July 26 Independence Day celebration in Belgium slated for July 22-24, 2016. The concert carnival is organized by African Entertainment and will host Liberian artists, models, radio presenters, DJs and a host of others. Scientific could be on that trip.
DJ Blue of Hottfm 107.9, DJ Weego Zico, award winning movie star Frank Artus and a few others will be attending the celebrations.
Meanwhile, If you can recall, Scientific dropped a gem on his fans when his publicist and manager Junda Morris-Kennedy announced that they have signed a distribution deal with AFRICORI. That information topped all of his other achievements in his years as an artist.
“My publicist and manager is doing a great job and linking a lot of things because she is connected like that. AFRICORI is really showing love; they are actually ready to do whatever with us. They are bringing a lot of things on the table to try and help out; they want to do a couple of collabo’s and we are looking at the BET awards and stuff like that by next year,” Scientific added.
Scientific has also joined the caring crowd showing his humanitarian side by putting up a charity movement.
“I’m trying to do a charity movement and get my own organization moving. My team is working on a whole lot in increasing the Scientific brand, a lot is involved including merchandising. Before 2016 ends, it’s going to be big; just expect the best from Scientific,” he said.
He has a website where fans can follow him www.scientific4life.com. Any information you’ll need on your boy is there.
“What’s happening with me on a day to day basis and what’s going down with Scientific,” he added.
So, how does Scientific stay on top of his game, I mean, he’s even balanced his rapping with colloqua and has a couple of tracks where he’s heard using the dialect quite nicely?
“This year is going to be really good: a couple of travels and tours are going to be planned, and we are setting up a lot of other stuff. This year I’ll be dropping a new album, a mature album, a different me, a lot of style is being put together for this one, great songs, the intro to the album is actually a full song and will also be shooting the video to it. This year is going to be really good; a couple of travels and tours are going to be planned,” he said.
Watch out or listen for two new planned single releases “A Back Wicked” and “Aint Got Time.”
