One of Malta’s most interesting rappers is back with another rabid and rapid single – and he’s taking no prisoners, as per usual.
Merħba Malta, which features Maltese singer Nadine, takes a look at modern Malta and rips through some of the modern ills the country is experiencing.
“This song is something I wanted to get off my chest for a long time. It is also the title of my new album Merħba Malta coming soon,” the rapper told Lovin Malta.
“I wanted to open some eyes and welcome people back to reality. As media is trying to paint a fairy-tale nowadays using music, news and politics as well to keep alienating us from what is really going on. I’m happy to say though the upcoming tracks are going to be of different concepts and you will see me in ways you have never seen be before so stay tuned!”
The video features some funky photography featuring Il-Lapes as the superhero Malta Man, our one true hope
No stranger to controversy, Il-Lapes speaks about everything from the issue of lots of high-rises in Malta, to immigration, and everything in between. Let the track play and let Malta Man speak to you about what’s up on the island in 2019.
