David Ogunnubi, also known as Extra, is a first-generation Nigerian rapper who was raised in California right outside the Los Angeles area. He is a lyrical and energetic hip hop artist who has been inspired from artists like Kendrick Lamar to Jay-Z. Extra is able to fuse multiple genres such as rap and R&B to create his own style of hip hop.
Extra started creating music in college, the same place where he met his DJ and current producers. There he started to create beats and sounds where it was obvious, he had a talent, although music has always been a part of his life through a young age. Although there have been hard obstacles to overcome throughout the way, Extra learns that balance in life is key. You can hear messages like these throughout his lyrics as he wants people to be able to take away the emotions he feels— anything from a good vibe to a leap of faith. His energy and passion exert through his lyrics as he makes every line count.
Currently Extra has two different visual series available, “Extra Extra Read All About It” Vol. 1 and “Ya Beat Iz Not Safe” Vol. 1. He plans on releasing volume 2 of both these series later this year. His newest single “Can We Live” is also out which was created for the Juneteenth performance he had within the year. Make sure to stick around for his new series dropping for both “Extra Extra Read All About It” and “Ya Beats Iz Not Safe” where you can watch both visuals on YouTube and any music platform.
