Most Valuable HipHop
“The Guy” combines hip-hop with Afropop, amapiano, and highlife elements while addressing issues such as legacy, mental health, religion, poverty, masculinity, and romance.
Flowking never disappoints, especially when given the chance to showcase his rapping abilities. Rap is fast and flipping. To spice things up this time, he brought in the legendary Reggie Rockstone, also known as the father of hiplife, the genre that gave birth to the majority of Ghanaian rap artists.
Vado is not a new face to hip-hop fans in New York, particularly in Harlem, where he brawls. The song “Yea It Is” is said to be from his fifth studio album, “Slime Flu 5”. Dolla Bill Kid, a seasoned producer, produced the track.
Many upcoming artists have more to contribute to hiphop globally, but the rise of Afropop has limited rappers’ opportunities to shine; however, fast rising rap artist Xingapore has proven to be an unstoppable moving train in this track.
On this record, Ycee goes Bossy, tearing things up with his bars and flow. The evil rap boss who can turn your main lady into an option and a rapper into an orphan. Banks is also a rap god!
Sinzu has never stopped representing Ogba, Lagos, and 9ja in general since his breakthrough release “Sanboribobo.” He recently released two songs back to back, and hopefully we will hear more of Sinzu’s massive hit.
Phyno is without a doubt one of the finest rap artists from the eastern part of Nigeria. His energetic performance and contributions to the music industry are second to none. With the help of Penthouse, Phyno is aiming for nothing but success.
Dope punchlines in various languages, the first of its kind in the industry. Morell nails the hausa part, while Reminisce and Phyno deliver the Yoruba and Igbo lyrics from different perspectives.
“Lord Have Mercy” features award-winning rapper “Olamide” a.k.a. Badoo and is produced by “K9” himself. This song, a smooth blend of rap and hip-hop with a heavy beat by the wonder kid “K9,” is bound to bring down the roof whenever it comes on.
Everyday is the second track from Dagrin’s phenomenal project C.E.O., which includes thirteen extraordinary recorded pieces of music. What an astounding album that we continue to enjoy even after his death in 2010. May his soul rest in perfect peace.
