Sarkodie

Khaligraph Jones x Sarkodie – Wavy

Multi-award winning East African rapper, Khaligraph Jones releases Wavy featuring Ghanaian veteran, Sarkodie. Prior to Wavy’s release, the Kenya rapper had bragged that African hiphop would not remain the same and boy, did he deliver.

The first verse starts with Khaligraph spitting hard, fire lines over the sick beat created by Motif the Don. The rapper alternates between English and Swahili to decapacitate his adversaries and establish himself as the fly, wavy man that he is. Sarkodie takes over the next verse bringing it to a climax rapping in his usual native tongue reminding us why he is one of the best to ever do it. The duo compare themselves to Ronaldo and Messi and while that might be up for debate, the lyricism and dexterity employed in this song cannot be denied.

Both rappers make cars their main props as they are seen rapping beside and inside different cars. Khaligraph in a red Toyota Crown and Sarkodie a rolls royce. The video  was directed by Blu Ink corp. Already, the official video released a day ago has over 50,000 views and if you want to see it, click here.

Watch the video for Joey B’s ‘Cold’ featuring Sarkodie

Joey B drops new song ‘Cold’ alongside its visuals with Sarkodie with Cameo apperances from King Promise, Dee Money and a host of many others. This is coming after dropping sensational 9 track album ‘Lava feels’. The only problem with this song is that it ends too quick but it is pure two mins of heat. The song might be titled ‘Cold’ but it is literally Fire. From hot lyrics to powerful renditions, Joey B and Sarkodie prove why they are owning the Ghanian rap space. ‘Cold’ is about grinding through icey streets while navigating harsh elements. Plus there were deadly punches to Aisha Modi of Peace FM…

“Innit, no label I did it.

When you hear Krept say roof

that’s cos we aim for the ceiling.

We no dey miss no dealings

Mpaebo a no be healing

Gyae ntoatoa ne wo gyimii Niqqas all stuck in their feelings.

Too many enemies

gotta watch your back

Coz too many frenemies

If I leave this world

I go to Mars

Mene me pen mene me bars

We no go blend we go no pass

Aim For the mula we dey shoot for the stars…”

With an all men cast draped in White shirts, the video is a feast for the eyes. The song was produced by veteran Dj Krept and its Video directed by Yaw Phanta. Click here to watch.

Ice Prince Taps M.I Abaga, Sarkodie, Khaligraph Jones & Kwesta For ‘Feel Good’ Remix

Ice Prince has had quite a busy year. The rapper has been steady with quality releases this year such that the string of releases has helped put his name back in conversations and spaces where he existed a few years ago.  Recently, he worked with Mr Eazi to release ‘In A Fix’, a record which has been gaining much traction on the airwaves.

And now, just a few months after teaming up with two of Nigeria’s biggest wordsmiths, Falz and Phyno in club banger, ‘Feel Good‘, the fashionable rapper is back with what he calls a refix of the record. For this new version, Ice Prince joins forces with an African all-star rap team with M.I Abaga, the Nigerian living legend; Sarkodie the Ghanaian veteran; Kwesta all the way from South Africa, and Khaligraph Jones waving the Kenyan flag.

This isn’t the first time Ice Prince is making a pan-African remix to his bop. It would be remembered that in 2013, the rapper got Sarkodie, Kuli Chana, Wizkid and M.I Abaga on the remix of his monster hit, ‘Aboki’.

In ‘Feel Good‘ remix, M.I Abaga opens up with a fire verse with a bullish delivery that leaves him with the most impressive performance on the record while Ice Prince wraps up the record with a verse of his own that reminds us of his heydays. The other rappers also kept up the tempo with verses laced with snarky punchlines.

Enjoy this record above.

Linksters – La Même Gang

Another wing of the New Age movement; La Même Gang is a creative collective from Ghana doing their part to redefine what it means to create music in 21st Century Africa.

The collective is a group of six creatives: Darkovibes, Kiddblack, Nxwrth, RJZ, $pacely and Kwaku BS; all individually full of epic talent. They released their debut mixtape La Même Tape in 2017. The ten-track chart-topper solidified the strong organic following they’d already garnered.

La Même Gang has just released their second project Linksters. The compilation is an effortless blend of genres from Hip-Hop to Trap to Afro-Pop. Stone Island, the lead single gave their audience an insight into the bond they share as friends.

Linksters has production from Nova, Kuvie, Zodiac, Killmatic, Eargasm and of course Nxwrth—who is leading Ghana’s burgeoning Trap scene at the moment. The album also features more great talent from Sarkodie, King Promise, Medikal, Kobla Jnr, Pappy Kojo, Odartie and Nigeria’s Odunsi the Engine.
Linksters shows off the growth and versatility of each individual member of La Même Gang and is a delightful listen for both old and new fans.
