‘Sarkodie Has No Size In The Rap Game’- Hammer
Hammer of the Last 2 fame has waded into ongoing debate about which rappers rightfully deserve to be in the ‘top 50 emcees of all time’, sparked by Joy FM’s DJ Black.
In an interview on Joy FM’s Super Morning show this morning, Hammer said the list DJ Black compiled reflects his (DJ Black) opinion, therefore there’s nothing anybody can do about it.
‘For that list by DJ Black, it’s his own opinion. If we want to do a list of favourite rappers, then we have to form a committee.’ For me, I am a rapper myself so that’s why I know what rap is about. Every rap producer should know how to rap to be able to understand these rappers.’
DJ Black caused a stir last week when he dropped a list of top 50 best rappers of all time in Ghana which he arranged in a sequential order. The issue generated much buzz on the internet because some people were upset that their favourite rappers did not make the list whilst others held position they did not like.
On the legacy of Sarkodie, he said:
‘For Sarkodie, I won’t mention his name at all because he has passed this stage. Among his generation, Sarkodie has done soo well, huge gap among his mates. He should be a plaque on the wall.’
Hammer of The Last Two is a record producer in the Ghanaian music industry. He is the founder and CEO of The Last Two Music Group and is also known for grooming some of the best Ghanaian Hip Hop or Hiplife artists, including Obrafour, Tinny, Kwaw Kese, Sarkodie, Ayigbe Edem, and others.
