The visuals transport the listener to a cinematic mafioso atmosphere for a second German-Ghanaian collaboration.
Setting the tone for their upcoming Way Out East album with recent singles “Check the Vibe” and “These Days”, Berlin-based producer duo Re.decay continue their ascent with the video for “Cosa Nostra”, featuring the Ghanaian rapper Mawcom X. The album will be out on January 28, 2022. This deeply intercultural project will include 15 vocalists from eight different countries.
Mawcom X (aka Mawuli Jiagge) is a frequent Re.decay collaborator as well as an Accra industry key player, having already collaborated with artists such as Mr. Walz, Mr. Eazi, R2bees, Guilty Beatz, Skales and Brymo. The MC’s laid back baritone takes center stage on the new single, as he spins a punchline-laden tale of rising to greatness through the lens of a classic mafia movie. Though the verses ooze swagger and confidence, Mawcom X also warns of the pitfalls of a quick rise to success. “I wanted to write a flick in under three minutes… I mean, who doesn’t like a good mafia movie?”, the rapper says.
