Montreal-based Ethiopian rapper Naya Ali burst onto the Canadian Hip-Hop scene in 2017 and does not hide her international ambitions. Quickly noticed for her flamboyant personality and unparalleled flow, the artist is able to transport us from scathing world sometimes dark, sometimes quieter, but always uncompromising.

Since the release of her first EP “Higher Self”, the emerging artist has drawn looks and attention from several media and some major hip-hop players, even abroad.

After making freat fuss once again with “Godspeed: Baptism (Prelude)” back in March of 2020, Naya Ali is back on September 3rd with the 2nd part of her debut album with which she proves, once again, that she has nothing to envy American household names.

Aptly titled “Godspeed: Elevated”, this new body of work showcases her journey from her introduction in the rap game to her baptism and now her elevation. The prelude was her humble introduction to the game; however, this new chapter testifies that Naya Ali is an artist of exception, full of power, bravado, but also vulnerability. “Godspeed: Elevated” is an album with a mature tone that acknowledges the very real human emotions she experienced in the past few years, from recording her first songs in her basement to performing on the biggest stages of the province and country.
