The competition in African hip hop reached an all time high last year and it's looking like 2020 might surpass it. Kenyan rapper, Khaligraph Jones has just released a diss track aimed at Blaqbonez and half of Nigerian's hip hop demographic.
On the track titled "Best Rapper In Nigeria," Jones declares himself the best rapper in Africa (yea right) and calls out Nigerian rappers for losing sight of what used to make them top tier. Did I also mention he shitted all over Blaqbonez?
"Nigerian rappers used to be the hardest in the game/but along the way it changed/Then you started chasing fame/Fix your lives up before even thinking of mentioning my name." Yikes!
Their beef? stems from Blaqbonez's tongue-in-cheek comments after Khaligraph Jones was crowned 'The Best Rapper In Africa' at the just concluded Soundcity MVP Awards held in Lagos, Nigeria.
“Somebody tell Khaligraph that I’m still the best rapper in Africa Sound City got it wrong. Diss track in the morning, you know what I mean!!!” Blaq joked.
In a follow up tweet, the Nigerian - who prematurely crowned himself The Best Rapper In Africa last year, made it clear his comments wasn't to be taking seriously, however the damage had already been done. “Lmaoo I’m kidding about a diss track oo. Wtf you people are taking me too seriously. Congrats @Khalipgraph Jones. And I’m sorry.”
Khaligraph caught wind of the tweet and he wasn't really feeling it.
“Nigga has apologized. What a shame . I was so excited , now am gonna diss each and every one of you all Nigerian rappers and become the top Nigerian rapper then apply for Citizenship. There cause every doing afro pop now."
“The Nigerian Rap game is in Your hands right now, You can decide to save them by dropping that disstrack or you can wait for Thanos to come and wipe out everybody, you have a few hours, Think about it," Jones added. "Wasted Drip, thought you was gonna go on stage with it to take the award, take them back to the stylist now”
The man definitely delivered on his promises. Listen to 'Best Rapper In Nigeria' below and let us know what you think.
