The hype around hip hop seems to be declining through the years, but there some determined to revive it.
While we have some glorified OGs, here are 5 youngsters who will make your favourite rapper piss their pants.
5. Blaq Bonez
The aura Of confidence that surrounds this guy can be visibly seen in his music, the self-awareness that he breathes through his track shows that he can stand bar to bar with any rapper in the country.
4. Dap The Contract
There is more to this dude than the bars, from his storytelling ability to the arrangement of his track, the maturity and quality of his music is beyond the Nigerian standard and for those who think Nigerian hip hop is dead should think again.
3. Loose Kaynon
When he comes to intellect and the uses of big words, loose and his partner A-Q are the first to come to mind, there is a bit of prestige to their music and only those who are deemed worthy can vibe to it.
One of the dopiest freestyle and battle rapper in the country, A-Q finesses intellect and gangsterism is such a way that there is no match, he and his partner Loose Kaynon have taken it upon themselves to save the rap scene.
There was a time hip hop ruled the Nigerian music industry but in recent times Afro beats has come back to take the throne.
While there are still rap heads among the Nigerian listeners, most of our rappers right now are idolized just because they rap, as long as you can spit a decent sixteen in this country, you are a rap god, and this is because the rap heads in this country are just grateful to get any rap song, considering the fact that everyone wants to sing these days.
Apart from punchlines back to back, he is a story teller, taking you on a journey line by line and this is something we lack in this part of the world, our rappers just throw fancy words at us and expect to be applauded, but it takes more than that.
Your favorite rappers better watch out, because this underground rapper is not going to stay underground for long and if he keeps to his gun, he is coming for the throne.
