BAR 7,” the highly anticipated latest installment in E.L.’s iconic Best African Rapper series, is coming to streaming platforms on July 26.

Is it a bird? Is it a plane? No, it’s “BAR 7!” The Ghanaian rap maestro, E.L., is back in the mix with a surprise drop that has Hip-Hop heads and critics buzzing. Without any prior warning, E.L. unleashed the official trailer for “BAR 7 (Intro) [Trailer],” offering a tantalizing glimpse of what’s to come.

Announcing his latest project with a sky-high spotlight akin to the iconic Bat-Signal—probably a nod to his most streamed track, ‘Superhero’—E.L. is back with a vengeance like the caped crusader. This dramatic reveal has set the stage for what promises to be an explosive release.


In the trailer, E.L. flexes his lyrical wit, rapping next to a Harley Davidson motorbike, signaling that “BAR 7” is going to be a terrific ride. The visuals and his commanding presence indicate that this project will not only meet but exceed fans’ expectations.

Addressing the prolonged wait, the award-winning artist shared in a press release, “You know it is a good project when people rage after just one year of absence. In actuality, I had to take time out to pursue something unrelated to music.” This hiatus only built up the anticipation, making “BAR 7” one of the most eagerly awaited releases of the year.

E.L. also pointed to the symbolism of the number 7 as being instrumental for the series’ seventh installment. The number 7 often represents completion and perfection, hinting that this could be the most refined and powerful entry in the Best African Rapper series yet. Hip-Hop fans can expect a thrilling experience that reflects E.L.’s evolution as he makes another case for why he is the Best African Rapper.
