Produced by Killertunes and E Kelly, ‘The Don’ is a larger-than-life anthem that offers listeners a first taste of Something Else, and a window into MR EAZI’s ever-expanding world.

“I spent the entire year working on building emPawa Africa and morphing into ‘Don Eazi’, the mogul,” MR EAZI says of 2020. “I almost had no time to record. This project was inspired by Kel P and Killertunes, who kept coming to meet me in Accra until I finally recorded ‘The Don.’ That opened the door for me getting back in the studio.”

In addition to Killertunes, E Kelly and Kel P,Something Else‘ features production from Spellz, Blaq Jerzee, and Jaylon. Its lone guest feature comes from Kenya-based Xenia Manasseh, who was one of 30 emerging artists handpicked by Eazi to participate in the #emPawa30, the second round of emPawa Africa’s talent incubator program.
