One thing that makes the Hip Hop beautiful is beef. And we are getting quite a number of them these days. Fans of various artistes claiming kingship are also given some facts to base their arguments on. The fire started when Flowking Stone featured Sarkodie on his hit track “Fire Burn Dem” upon Sark’s request. The long debate in the minds of fans of both artistes had something concrete to base their arguments on.
In the remix Sarkodie said, “2050 na me cup b3y3 ma”. His fans really loved that because it means they will all be old by the time he is done with his reign and they will have the bragging right for long. But does he really believe that? In his “Kanta” song which is a direct re-hit to M.anifest after he replied to Sarkodie’s “Bossy”, he said “2040 na me’ntae ‘nha adwen nti m3yi m’ahen ky3…..”( It’s in 2040 that i will be done). With a decrease in ten years, is it a sign that the other guys are giving him a tough time so he wants to retire early? Or he doesn’t believe what he said earlier?
Also, in his song “Saa Okodie No” featuring Obrafuor in 2012, he said “s3 m3 rappi a punch nnim de3 m3gyae ato gospel”( To rap without punches, i will rather quit rap and do gospel songs instead). His fans were hailing him for that. And were hailing punches as a vital part of rap. Now in his ‘Bossy” song he said “wo rappi na wo punchi pii a wo soundi immature”( If you rap with many punches you sound immature) Is “pii”(a lot) the difference or a direct contradiction? Or he was comfortable saying that becuase at that time Flowking Stone was thinking of his brother Kunta’s health, Ko-Jo Cue was still low, Medikal had not emerged, M.anifest wasn’t fighting hard so he was comfortable with that statement but now isn’t?
Whatever it is that makes him say those things, there is a lot of inconsistency in what he has been saying lately that makes us ask “is that a sign he is declining”? Your guess is as good as mine.
