Ok, before anybody starts aiming guns at me, I didn’t come up with this list ooooooh.
As the current trend is to start up controversy through a stupid list, Prezplay.net which recently won the award for best music blog in the south east region decided to come out with the list of 10 most talented igbo rappers in Nigeria which was guided by couple of Hip Hop Fans.
Though the post may read“igbo rappers”but it also centers around rappers who play their trade in the east region.
Splash (the photo above) is the only female rapper on this list.
When you listen to songs like papawa you have no other choice than to appreciate the good work indigenous rapper like zoro brings to the industry, in my opinion I’ll sayzorois a fine Lad
Slowdogg is definitely one of the pioneers of igbo rap,tho his delivery has been questioned by some I still believe slow dog is one of the best when it comes to rapping with the igbo dialect.
When i first heard maka chukwu it was all in my heard aiffe’s delivery is smooth and precise.then camechairman sirwhich is almost an anthem in the east. I tinkaifee has all it takes to be in the contest
When you listen tobosalinu don’t need a high priest to tell u his from the east side,right from songs like Government,bosalin has been making me look for my headphones to new jams like sexy die and nwanne with dialect and raw.
Is Your daddy Xbusta
X-bustahas being the talk of the town ever since he freestyled along side M.I and endorsed by Dr sid.xbusta’s freestyle skillz is one of a kind and has been applauded by fans.
Songs likeA shotandshomohas shown that xbusta has what it takes to be with the stars.
I’ve heard someone once call her the Phyno girl.Splash should be the only female hitting it hard like this.
Her igbo lyrics always gets the audience glued,after putting out the song church agbasa splash became a house hold name and has since been a force to reckon with.
People Say the last man gringing is a controversial rapper because of some diss songs he has been putting out,not to long ago he came out with a yung6ix diss,never the lessLMGhas never failed to deliver on a verse.
Songs like illuminate and his disinfectant mixtape shows that lmg is the face of hiphop
There call him the igbo busta rhymes, with hits like Swaggim Na Ada Oku,k largehas proven a point and his ability to combine lyrical content in Igbo, Pidgin and English Language with an awesome speed, i would sayk-largeis here to stay.
Phyno brought swag to the the rap scene his delivery with his native language is awesome with songs like Ghost moodand that killer hook on“Anam Achi Kwanu”with illbiliss i would say using igbo lyrically phyno is perfect
Even before it became cool to spit on bars with igbo“nigga raw”as he was formally known made his name from doing that and has been doing that comfortably with songs like obodo with Klint the Drunk,Hip Hop Gyration and many more his recent songs are currently banging the airways i would say Mr raw deserves the number one spot.
No Ill Bliss, Ikechukwu or Naeto C?!?
