After drawing attention from several media and major hip-hop players with “Godspeed: Baptism (Prelude)” back in March of 2020, Naya Ali is back with the 2nd part of her debut album. 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. 

“Created mostly during the pandemic, I had no choice but to dig deep within myself and create works that resonate honestly with my heart and with people - to share light even for just a moment.” – Naya Ali

Different from the first part released last year, Godspeed: Elevated, produced by Adrian X, Kevin Figs, Chase.wav, John Brown and Naya Ali herself was created partly in Toronto, and takes space with imposing sounds, high bpm tracks, live instruments, Ethiopian samples and an increased affinity for storytelling. A strong comeback for the Canadian hip-hop rising star.
