Ghanaian wordsmith Dex Kwasi has dropped the bonus cut off his upcoming album A.$.S. : African $ex Symbol. As Dex explained to me, there are two specific meanings within the "4:19 in East Legon" title. First, 4:19 is not only a time, but also a slang term for African internet scams popularized by West African countries like Ghana. The second meaning deals with the East Legon bit, which happens to be Dex's childhood neighborhood in Accra, Ghana.
Over a DJ Mr Rogers (Curren$y, Slim Thug, Big K.R.I.T) co-produced beat that begins with an eerie trap vibe that later transitions to an early morning mellow trap feel, Dex connects experiences that deal with the stress and paranoia of illegal money, his faith in a higher power, and his addiction to liquor and drugs. Dex will continue to release new tracks and visuals in the lead up to African $ex Symbol. In the meantime, check out "4:19 in East Legon" and Dex's single "Poke Out".
