Obrafour,Rockstone And Sarkodie Pillars Of GH Rap Music;The Rest Are Just Surplus-Hammer

Veteran Sound Engineer/Producer Hammer has indicated that Reggie Rockstone, Obrafour and Sarkodie are the three pillars of rap music in Ghana.

He made this statement in an interview on Joy FM.

According to him, Reggie Rockstone is the founder of rap music in Ghana, Obrafour taught Ghanaians how rap music is done and Sarkodie took Ghana rap to the world.

“The founder is Reggie Rockstone, Obrafour taught us how it’s done and Sarkodie took Ghana rap to the world. So these are the three pillars, these are the three impact points of our game..” Hammer opined.

Hammer is noted for grooming some Ghanaian hiplife artistes like Obrafour, Tinny, Ayigbe Edem, Kwaw Kese, Sarkodie among other artistes and it is evident that his assertion is based on experience.

His comment comes at the back of the Top 50 rappers in Ghana released by DJ Black.

The list has garnered several criticisms with many music lovers and some industry players rubbishing the list by DJ Black.

There have been supremacy over who is the best rapper in Ghana as it dates back in the early 90s when rappers indulge in lyrical battle/beefs to determine who is the best.

It started with Ex-Doe and Chicago when they used to be dominant forces in the rap game.

Obrafour also changed the game with his lyrical feud with Lord Kenya and Okyeame Kwame.

Sarkodie and M.anifest also gave Ghanaians a feel of their lyrical dexterity and rapping prowess in their give and take ‘diss songs’.

Just recently, Medikal made an assertion that he saved rap music in Ghana 4 years ago and he is still keeping the game alive.

He was scrutinized for making such a comment and was even ‘attacked’ by some rappers who claimed he disrespected the veteran rappers in the music industry.

Notable among such rappers were Strongman and Kwesi Arthur who lashed out at the AMG rapper through their diss songs directed at Medikal.

It later turned into a give and take ‘punches after punches’ beef between Medikal and Strongman.

Matters, however, became worse when renowned Disc Jockey, DJ Black recently released his top 50 Ghanaian rappers.

Some rappers who felt they were wrongly placed have expressed their disappointment at the list released by DJ Black.

Well, Hammer has picked Reggie Rockstone, Obrafour and Sarkodie as the pillars of rap music subtly meaning the rest are just surplus or just adding up to the numbers.
