Yo, rewind it a second. Remember Proklaim, the Windhoek-based rapper who consistently drops tracks that have us fiending for more? Well, guess what? He’s back, blessing our ears with another banger titled “Poppin.” This dude’s on a roll, and we ain’t complaining! Released on February 18, “Poppin'” marks Proklaim’s second foray into the hip-hop/amapiano fusion, after “Vamos” carved a fresh lane. He boldly claims to be the originator of this unique blend, and honestly, after hearing “Poppin’,” it’s hard to argue. Ride with me on this as I dig into this gem.

From the very first beat drop, “Poppin” hooks us in like a magnet to metal. The hypnotic introduction sets the stage for what’s to come, luring us into Proklaim’s world with its infectious rhythm and pulsating energy. And when his vocals hit, oh boy, it’s like a lightning bolt of pure charisma and swagger. His delivery is slick, his flow is impeccable, and his presence on the mic is an experience we all wouldn’t like to miss. It’s like in the early 2000s when we heard of a Jackie Chan movie. Do you remember how we rushed to watch it? Yes, that’s how Proklaim’s presence on the mic feels; you wouldn’t miss the performance for anything. His voice drips with confidence and swagger, which keeps us engaged throughout his tracks.

Thematically, Poklaim’s “Poppin” is a celebration of life, a testament to his tireless positivity and zest for living. With each bar, he exudes an infectious energy that’s impossible to resist, urging us to embrace the moment and revel in the joy of being alive. It’s a message that resonates deeply in today’s noisy world, offering a much-needed dose of hope and optimism in the face of adversity. This message is crystal clear: live it up, soak in the vibes, and keep pushing forward no matter what obstacles may come your way.

The production on this track is terrific. The amapiano instrumentation is perfectly layered, providing a foundation that’s both energetic and smooth. The bass thumps like a heartbeat, while the percussive elements add a layer of rhythmic complexity that keeps our heads nodding. But it’s the way Proklaim rides this instrumental that truly shines. His flow is fluid and dynamic, effortlessly adapting to the ebb and flow of the beat. He spits bars with precision and purpose, each word landing with impact. Also, the mix is top-notch.
