It’s Sunday and no need to talk too much story, let’s get right into it. Yea?
Kelly Hansome – Verbal Gymnastics (Open Letter)
Oh lord Kelly Hansome! I’m not sure there’s too many other very talented artists out there that kill their potential by dragging on meaningless beef.
Jay-Z‘s open letter is hard, and heavy. I mean it’s Jay-Z. Now Kelly Hansome’s cover on the other hand is just not it.
The bars & flow are not it at all, rhymes weren’t solid. Kelly Hansome is not one made to hip-hop for real. No one hears Kelly Hansome and thinks of him as a rapper. He’s best doing his trademark songs like Maga Don Pay, Like Play, Igwe, etc. Those are his heavy joints. That’s why we liked Kelly Hansome. All this “forming hip-hop” and taking jabs at artists is not working abeg. The beef can’t be that deep biko. MI, Wande Coal & co have all moved on.
In the track, he quoted from the original “Y’all gon learn today.” Quite frankly I didn’t learn anything. Overall this makes for a song that’ll you’ll listen to once or twice, and go back to the original by Jay-Z.
WizKid – Jaiye Jaiye
A few weeks ago, I mentioned that with WizKid it’s hit or miss. This one right here is a serious hit. Between the beat the Sarz, the sax from Femi Kuti, and WizKid’s catchy flow, the song comes to be one that has to be serious hit for the summer.
I’ve listened to this over and over again trying to find anything wrong with it, and I just couldn’t pick out one thing. Even though the jury is still out as to whether this is as good as any of his other hit songs(Don’t Dull etc), it’s still one that will make his greatest hits album when it’s all said and done.
Hard to go wrong with Femi Kuti & Sarz with you. Geniuses musically.
