Who doesn’t want the finer things in life? Accra-native Copta had his fans waiting for a follow up after he released “Blood Diamonds” featuring Shim in July 2016 on which he for the first time hinted a new project. Since then, Copta has continued to grow his fan base & buzz, collaborating with Jayso on Basquiat & Picasso and then on day 1 of 2018, after a year of no solo release, he treated his fans to his single “Snakes & Ladders” with his first-ever video which unveils Copta in his most natural form in new braids coming out from the iconic afro the propellers, his loyal fans, had become used to. The Finer Things was released on 10th February on iTunes and other streaming platforms.
Following up UNI [the Mixtape], the 28 minute 8-track deep EP features Ansah Live, as expected, on the Liquidbeatz production “Rolling Stones”, the Cina Soul assisted “V12s & Dreamgirls”, and guest appearances from King Joey & KA$AH on the addictive party starter “Pink Molly”. The Finer Things is a mix of trap bangers and a melodic love song in “Be By You” performed with E.Man. His new music sees him developing more on the intricate flows and winding rhyme schemes you can expect in all his raps till date breaking new barriers as a writer and vocalist introducing more natural waves and rhythms into his rap records. His recent feature on Badman Magnom’s “Beans” off the 2nd edition of his “We Speed” album series is a classic Copta showcase. Production on “the Finer Things” was handled by Epidemix, as usual, and on “the Finer Things” he established new chemistry with DJ Moor Sound & Foreign Local who you can expect to become frequent collaborators in production. The Finer Things was executively produced by Moor Sound.
Copta’s ‘the Finer Things” EP is now available on iTunes for purchase. You can stream the project on SoundCloud, Apple Music, Spotify or TIDAL and on Thursday 12th July, Copta has returned with a new music video for “Rolling Stones” released exclusively on his YouTube channel. Another ghanaboygrahl direction. Watch now.
