After unleashing his third studio album ‘’WAVs’’ earlier this year, many Hip-Hop enthusiasts wondered what had become of the beloved mixtape series that put undiluted Ghanaian rap on the cusp of revival since 2014. But E.L was simply tight-lipped about it all since its previous iteration ‘’BVR’’ #SirenSeason in 2018 and fans began to abandon hope, at least till 2020’s ‘’Leaks 1’’ and ‘’Leaks 2’’ swooped in to get the rumor mill running once more.
Finally, after 3 years ‘’BAR 6’’ is no longer a fantasy or hearsay. Few hours after sharing the cover art and track-list on social media, E.L makes available the tape across all streaming platforms.
‘Bar 6’ houses 15 solid tracks with collaborations with Kev The Topic, Dex Kwasi, Phyl4lyph, A-Clipse, Lyrical Joe, Joey B, Tulenkey, Temple, Yung Pabi, Dr. Laylow, Gambo, EL Deezy, Kimilist, Cool V, Kojo Vypa, Gingsen, Hackey & Kxng Tradey.
Preceding the release of Bar 6, E.L spoke about the progression of the Bar mixtape series and plan of action in the future. He also disclosed: ‘’The main goal of the BAR series has always been to provide a platform where I expose new and upcoming local talent to my fans and hopefully to the world. It’s my small way of helping these artists reach a wider audience and over the past few years that’s exactly what we’ve done. It is my hope that this tradition continues for as long as it possibly can and I am grateful to everybody who joined with me to make this years project a possibility, we’re going to keep riding this wave till the board slips off’’.
‘Rowdy’ is the ninth track on the project and features Temple and Yung Pabi. Production credits to Track Pros.
