Unchained XL

Unchained XL is a UK-born Nigerian hip hop artist blending traditional African-inspired textures and rhythms with various styles of hip hop. With songs of protest and social commentary through the lens of a ‘third culture’ African migrant, Unchained XL draws inspiration from afrobeat legend and political icon Fela Kuti, as well as artists like M.anifest, Antibalas and A Tribe Called Quest. Unchained XL uses a combination of live instruments and synths to create a sound which he has coined “Afro-roots Hiphop”. Unchained XL delivers an energetic live performance that will leave you searching for more.
