Ever since Blaqbonez declared himself the best rapper in Africa in a scorching freestyle a few weeks back, many have gone back and forth over the worthiness of his claim. But one thing was clear, Blaqbonez had guts. Right now, in fact, bold isn’t a word strong enough to describe his artistic drive. The 100 Crowns-rapper even put out several calls to rappers to challenge his claim since many felt he was undeserving of the self-ascribed title. Tentik, Payper Corleone and other lesser-known rappers put diss tracks to that effect and now, Blaq, as promised, has replied them all in his latest release appropriately titled, ‘Best Rapper In Africa‘.
On this new record, Blaq is blunt and brutal as he launches ballistic missiles at rappers like Tentik and Holyfield while dragging Naira Marley, Fela Durotoye, Jimi Agbaje and Blackfacae into the mix. He also had a few choice words for colleagues like Fresh L, Ladipoe, Boogey and more. Coming a day after it was initially promised, BRIA is no doubt a bop that finds Blaq showcasing his mastery as a lyricist over a dazzling Alpha production.
Hip-hop as a genre thrives on competition and a war-ready Blaqbonez is giving us a full dose. Although many would not agree with his BRIA claim, it can’t be denied that he is a strong contender. And perhaps, the most exciting rapper out there at the moment.
