King Madi shares fresh album ‘Matrix II’

By Damilola Grey

King Madi has just dropped his highly awaited album and second instalment of the Matrix series, Matrix II. The 22-track album boasts of features from Blaze Tha Meziah, Karmaa, Hidden Demons, Haley J, and frequent collaborator, Type1ne as well as others. Matrix II is King Madi’s most diverse and refined project to date. When I talked to him about what the album meant to him, he told me “this album is special because in the first album Matrix, I was in a very dark place in my life, and I was ready to give up on music and life all together. I stepped away from music for a while, but this project stands as a symbol to never give up. It continues from the previous lore of the first project and serves as a reminder that life comes in ‘waves’”.

The album, funny enough, is more or less a wave. It starts off with lots of high energy but later mellows down and gets deeper lyrically. Mental health is also tied into the sequencing of the album, which can be seen in tracks like “Awaken” and “Triumph”. Matrix II is honestly an amazing album from start to finish and King Madi didn’t disappoint with it one bit. Make sure to check out the album right now.
