True to Hip-Hop storytelling, BigZiq coasts on the fast lane, his devotion to the game and lustful indulgences on ‘On Code’. There is much to enjoy, given the infectious drill instrumental and the fast-paced lyrical delivery.

BigZiq lays out his confidence at the track’s start, and this permeates the entire experience:

I’ve been doing shit in my way since I was born until my death’/’I’ve been killing beats in a game till I lose my breath


On a broader level, ‘On Code’ is an apt indicator of how the local Hip-Hop sound has evolved over the years. Amidst concerns about the possible decline of the genre in the country, it has arguably enjoyed a renaissance in recent years. This new lease of life has witnessed more platforms for upcoming rappers, artistic risk-taking and forays into niche sounds. BigZiq proves himself to be a risk taker, opting for a more grounded sound without mainstream leanings.
