Upon first listening to Ghana’s fastest rapper Sarkodie Album ‘Rapperholic’ it was not what I expected, maybe I have been caught up with the current azonto buzz that has taken the world by storm which is a distinct uptempo beat and unique communicative dance moves.
But after listening to the whole Rapperholic album twice without skipping a track, I can honestly say every song stands out by being very different from the other.
It's a excellent display of Sarkodie’s versatility to be able to rap on a hiplife, twipop, hipHop and afro-neo-soul, the combination of these genres, features on the album from masters in their own right Obrafour, K. K. Fosu, Kwabena Kwabena, Castro, Efya, Mugeez, E.L, Jayso, Lighter, Kwaw Kese, Rell and Tinny adds to the appeal of the highly favoured "Rapperholic" album.
Tracks that get repeated:
'Give It To Me feat. Mugeez'. Ever since Sarkodie and Mugeez made 'Babe' which was on the "Makye" album, the energy when they work together on any track is clear enough know it will always be a hit, just as 'Ajeii' was.
'U Go Kill Me' feat. E.L. This song was most definitely part of the epic beginning of the azonto movement. It is a track that gets people up and moving when its played in clubs spinning Afrobeats
'Onyame Nhyira No' feat. Castro
'When I Grow Up' feat. Ikechuwu
'Odo Menkoaa' feat. Kwabena Kwabena
'Old School Love' feat. Mugeez
'Give It to Me' feat. Mugeez
'I’m In Love With You' feat. Efya
'U Go Kill Me' feat. E.L
This topped off an epic year 2011 for Sarkodie which involved his US and UK tours with various appearances on radio including UK’s Hip Hop DJ Tim Westwood’s BBC 1Xtra show.
Has this potentially made him a top contender for the Ghana Music Awards 2012, Artist of the year? and will he win the 10,000 GHc prize?
This album has production expertise from the Konvict Music team, Hammer, Kaywa, Killbeatz, E.L and Kemanya.
