Over a year ago, Ajebutter22 and BOJ teamed up for the incredible Make E No Cause Fight — a joint EP that easily ranks as the best thing either of them has ever put out. Now, they’ve reunited for a Falz-assisted follow-up, Make E No Cause Fight 2.
On the 5-track project, Ajebutter22 and BOJ, both operating at the peak of their powers, confirm that their palpable chemistry is still very much intact; while Falz, who soars on every single track, continues to prove he’s always a great addition to just about anything.
Unlike the original, which explored a wider range of themes, Make E No Cause Fight 2 is a bit more focused on relationships. On “Ronaldo”, the trio use a barrage of football puns to allude to sex, while “Baminam” is about an affair between a friend and a lover.
Like on the first project, the production and BOJ’s hooks stand out, but Ajebutter is somehow even stronger this time around (his verse on “Rock Your Body” is a highlight). As for guests, Reminisce soars on “Faaji”, while Tems’ lowkey work on “Too Many Women” is exquisite.
Creating a sequel that’s both good and necessary can be immensely tasking, and although Make E No Cause Fight 2 isn’t the rare follow-up that surpasses the greatness of its original, it’s still an impressive project that makes a very solid case for its own existence.
