MUSIC: Rukus – The List (Naeto C, Vector, Ice Prince & Reminisce Diss) @rukuslive @iceprincezamani @vectorthaviper @notjustok
Rukus is here with a response to the Best rappers list that surfaced on NOTJUSTOK.COM a couple of days ago.
We at KONK NAIJA MUSIC believes its a personal opinion but a lot of rappers feel they should be number one on this list. We also feel same.
Meanwhile, when you talk about gifted rappers. You talk about dudes who can battle without using pre-written bars. We are talking about dudes who can freestyle for about 2mins non-stop. We are talking about dudes you will wake up in the middle of the night and will give you bars using events in their immediate environments. We are not talking about dudes who spends months writing just 20 lines of rap, go into the studio the second month and drop the lines on a collabo or their albums.
I know of a Nigerian rapper whose got four albums between 2006 till date and had nothing less than 22 tracks on each album.
So few on the NOTJUSTOK list can perform live on stage or even battle. I’ve seen a lot on that list who stutter their lines in a live studio (radio) interview. So many also lip-sync on stage or mime.
Rukus however didnt make the list like many others who believe they should be on the list too but he addresses this issue heads on while referencing some of the hottest rappers in the industry right now.
Listen and Share your thought.
How do you think we go about knowing the realest and illest raPpers in Nigeria? I think they all need battle someday. More like a LEAGUE until we crown the illest. All we need do is give them a story to rap about for two minutes or even diss one another in a battle so we know the rapper with the dopest punchlines.
Konk Naija Music believes Nigerian Hip Hop heads need know there is a difference between a rap artist and an emcee. Emcees are born to spit rhymes anywhere, anytime, anyday in any environment while rappers learn the art and write down their bars, study and memorize it before hitting the studio.
