The hip hop/rap culture is gradually becoming popular among every Ghanaian experiencing his or her passage of bloom of youthful exuberance.
The number of Hip Hop artistes contributing their quota to sustain the culture has soared astronomically within a short period from which the culture took off from the west.
In Ghana, we have practically become immune to illustrious sons like Sarkodie, M.anifest, E.L, Edem, Flowking Stone and a host of others for their relentless efforts to challenge the status quo and due credit has been given to them for their immense contribution to cement the legacy which appears to be the medium within which the youth of today address pressing issues confronting the society.
Over the past few years, we have enjoyed melodious or better still, mouth-watering rap tunes from the aforementioned artists, some of whom have fought so hard to separate the men from the boys.
