Rapper Edem has described as ‘top class’ the standard of rappers in Ghana now.
According to the artist who first broke into the music industry as Ayigbe Edem, Ghanaian rappers are feared by top-class foreign rappers.
He noted that foreign rappers fear to face rappers in the country because of the high level of maturity and punches.
Asked on the Kasahari Show on Adom FM by host Pope Skinny whether rap music in Ghana is falling, Edem said rap music has taken a new dimension in Ghana which is making it more attractive and matured.
“I can’t say that rap music is falling, the thing that it is changing its dimension. I think we’re up there.
“I tell established and underground rappers you can compete with anybody on the globe because we go up there and top rappers fear us. They know that we are world class rappers,” he said with a lot of airs.
Born Denning Edem Hotor, Edem named some of his favorite rappers as Strongman, Koo Ntakra, Medikal, who he labelled as amazing.
“The new boys are amazing. Some of my favorites are Strongman, Koo Ntakra – they have so much in content and delivery and Medikal, who has amazing punch lines as it takes intelligence to rap like that.”
Edem has got three albums to his credit. His albums have a fusion of hip-hop, dancehall, reggae and highlife but has revealed that he will soon be releasing a full reggae album for the reggae lovers.
