Back in 2020, Laycon only had one single, “Fierce”, released shortly after he signed to indie label Fierce Nation Entertainment. Following his win at the reality TV Show, fierce became a street anthem, and the 27-year-old’s name was on everyone’s.
In SWB, Laycon showcases admirable MC skills, impressive wordplay, storytelling, and flow. With features from Mayorkun, Joeboy, Teni, Terri, the album matches the billing of his new-found fame and undeniable stellar power.
Shall We Begin gives a perfect account of Laycon’s meteoric rise- the glitz and glamour that come with success, fame, and power.
