Let me begin this blog by stating that there is…
This seven-book series includes the blogs I wrote between 2008 and 2020. As a Hip hop artist, I wanted to process what I see as a psychological change in the global mentality of people. As someone who came to the world in the late 1970s and grew up in the 1980s and 1990s, under the Abrahamic mind frame, I had to cope with the temporal changes that took place after the year 2000.
After this indescribable misfortune, I want to pay my infinite…
This decade is also when many Hip Hop O. Gz frantically pulled their hair. We even saw our first openly gay rapper. The homosexual vibe was very influential. Grown men who are not homophobic slipped into skinny jeans and blouses. Some new rappers welcomed cross-dressing as a natural trend. If you were not hiding under a rock in the past ten years, you recognized the birth of Mumble Rap.
Of course, I have a side of me that still likes to hear gangsta rap. Every rapper who applies that sort of mood plays quite often on my stereo. Honestly, I wasn’t satisfied with the Molly and Syrup rap. Nor the skinny jeans, face tattoos, and man purses of the 2010s.
Is Lizzo Remarkably Confident and Self Assured in Her Skin or Is Her Sensitivity a Desperate Call for Change
Some one told me and I quote, “attention is the new currency.” We are living in a time very confusing time. North Americans have steered their society in a direction that has the world like… huh? What do I mean by that? Okay, how many times do you see an underemployed man, has terrible credit, borderline homeless, and dead broke, but he’s well dressed and portrays himself to be rich?
I’m just another indie artist, who makes his performances so enjoyable that most people may not even notice that I’m working. Here are some of my professional activities in 2019. I started the year with the release of my eighth book – “The Sandman’s Journal Vol. 5,” in Brussels, Belgium.
In a recent report, the Arab network launched a sarcastic documentary that vilified Caribbean diplomats as fraudsters. Here is my question. What about the enslavement of black people in Arab countries? Why has Al Jazeera not unmask the slave traders in the Middle East? Will Al Jazeera support the stop and frisk on the US, UK, EU, UAE, or Australian diplomats?
I know that the creators will make some mistakes, but when it comes to Ghost Recon, the stigma is carved in stone. You should expect it to suck. They always have the most beautiful graphics. Their storyline is still fascinating, but how many pistols and sniper rifles can you discover in an enemy’s camp? Do we need so many weapons?
Let’s surmise the evolution of the musicology of Sierra Leone, by outlining the preeminent cradle of the people. What are the various cultural influences in the melting pot of this West African nation? When it comes to the land, we know that there is always a mountainous peninsula. There is also a vast savannah landscape in the framework. The name Sierra Leone means “Lion Mountain” in Portuguese. Some veterans have said that the old people referred to it as “Romarong.”
King Boss LA is the most misunderstood genius from Sierra Leone. Make no mistake. He is a highly respected mogul on the music scene. Since the modest beginnings of Hip Hop in the early 1990s, the question was not just whether the country could produce a world-class emcee. It was also about whether we could deliver a list of a few more to come.
When it comes to the “King of Freetown,” the majority of his fans recognize him as someone more than a musician. For many Salone Hiphoppas, Kao Denero is the redeemer who unlocked the Sierra Leone Hip Hop community from stagnation. Thousands of Sierra Leoneans have also named Kao Denero as the best rapper of all time. Although today, the Afrobeat sound dominates Sierra Leone’s Hip Hop, the fans do not claim just this era or subgenre.
Years ago, I covered Sierra Leone in a two-part blog about music and dance cultures in Africa. If you would like to read that article, click HERE. The universe has bestowed the fascinating country of Sierra Leone with hundreds, if not thousands of talented people. One of the areas of such a celebrity is in the field of music.
To my knowledge, besides Neneh Cherry, no other musician has…
One of the primary obstacles that have tormented many Sierra Leone rappers is the ability to gain worldwide renown. Sierra Afrik, the legendary band from Freetown, broke the ground. It brought the traditional Sierra Leone sound to the regional diaspora.
