The Rap Culture in Nigeria; An Atmosphere For Miracle

For a while now, not a lot of rappers have been able to fit into the shoes that rappers like Mode 9, 2shortz, M.I, Da Grin and the likes wore. The rap scene has been mute, empty and weak for a while now.

This year, it looks like there’s an atmosphere for a miracle in the rap scene now. It seems the rap culture in Nigeria is gradually resurrecting as artistes like M.I, Blaqbonez, Reminisce, Vector, Dremo, Falz and the likes are trying to grow the culture once again.

This last quarter of the year has been quite hot in the rap scene. There has been the Martel Cypher tagged “The Purification” by M.I, Blaqbonez, Loose Kanon and AQ which was very controversial. There has also been the response from the opposing team which is Vector’s team, which released “The Purge”. The battle of the fittest in the game between the two parties has sparked several conversations both off and online about who’s better. Also, this has made fans pay more attention to rap that they have in the past 5 years.
