BlaqBonezBlaqBonez

I have had enough of sub tweets and interviews where Nigerian rappers rant but nothing concrete is being done to address issues. Finally the crowned prince and the favorite for the Nigerian rap throne entered the studio and set records straight.

And it was nobody other than the overthrown king of warri that got the smoke. Anytime rap heads mention his name a sigh of disappointment is always heard, we all expected him to be more than what he is but he went all amaka on us.

This is not the first time Blaq Bonez and Yung6ix are at loggerheads, in 2013 when the latter proclaimed himself the best rapper, the former which was totally unknown then dropped a track rebutting that claim, it gave him well deserved publicity and we have to say it was a pretty good track but did Yung6ix reply then? No. He probably just tweeted about it and that was it.

It’s funny because with the tough guy image most Nigerian rappers portray, they don’t have liver to beef anybody, everybody is their friend, that’s a lie.

Blaq Bonez has been able to come out boldly and say his mind even though I think the track is not loaded with enough bullets to take out the beast tha is Yung6ix’s career, but it’s a good development.  We have to crawl before we walk, then we run.

Yung6ix should have dropped a diss song when he claimed L.A.M.B stole his lines, instead he would rather tweet about it, crying foul like a defender who injured himself because he was terribly dribbled.

It maybe that he is setting a bait for them, but the Onome I know is not that tactical or much of a strategist, if he was his career won’t be where it is today.

I like what is happening because it might actually bring back the Yung6ix we love and also create conversations for us in this boring Nigerian Hip-hop where everyone fakes love.

We need more people like Blaq Bonez, the bold ones, we need more people like Yung6ix, the casting guys, we need this hip-hop culture to be revived by any reasonable means on a mainstream level. Let’s see as this Re-Up Beef plays out, would Blaq Bonez win again? Would Yung6ix come back hard at him?

I don’t know, I just dey observe.

DaTownCrier drops “In the Name of LOVE” on Dilla day

DaTownCrier comes with his first track of 2019 titled “In the Name of LOVE” produced by the Late Legendary American Hip Hop producer J-Dilla.

For Hip Hop fans who don’t really know who J-Dilla is, he was one of the fathers of sampling in hip hop music production. And he is one of the best to ever do it. He inspired plenty hip hop producers like Kanye West, 9th Wonder, Just Blaze and others, and is recognized by the legends in Hip Hop.

He died on the 10th of February 2006 with a rare from of Cancer. Since then February has been celebrated as “Dilla Month” in Hip Hop, since even his birthday is 3 days earlier.

In that accord, DaTownCrier who has been a fan of Dilla decided to drop a jam on his memorial day. Produced by Dilla, this is to promote the essence of why we do music. Like a line on the track says “Cos am focus on making things better/ my flows like making jeans sweater/ cos we living in a winter world”.

In other words, Music ought to be made in Love in order to bless your SOUL. That is the main message DaTownCrier is trying to lay across to the audience. This jam is the sheeeeeet. If you like internal rhyming and unpredictable homorhyms, the you got to cop this!!!

The track is also in preparation for his upcoming debut project titled “A Dose Of Pure Consciousness” . And it drops before the end of April.

Why musicians are so proud.

Have you observed that about 85% of musicians, singers, choir masters, instrumentalists, often express pride in their actions? They will always have reasons to criticize, grumble, to be jealous, gossip, envy one another. They will always see mistakes in others, argue, complain. They often misbehave because they feel they are too gifted to be corrected, no one can do what they do, and they think that if they are not around, the things would not go smoothly. You will only find few musicians who are meek and humble.

People are prone to rejoice, or scream or cry whenever they watch their favourite music star or any talented singer perform on stage. There is no doubt that musicians are often more celebrated than other stars, inventors or even presidents, unfortunately, because of this, many of them usually feel they are superior to others and feel good about it. There are for instance, many singers more popular and celebrated than their pastors even more than their presidents, who erroneously see themselves as more important than their pastors and presidents. They fail to realize that music is a wonderful gift from God, and no one can compose good music except given the ability by God.
The Bible says that Lucifer, who is now Satan, was created with musical instruments in his body, Ezekiel 28:13 says ” the workmanship of thy tabrets and of thy pipes was prepared in thee in the day that thou wast created”. Lucifer didn’t create music. Lucifer was given a unique music ability to worship and glorify God and was probably given the opportunity to lead the heavenly choir, whose duty was to sing songs ascribing holiness, majesty, might, power, wisdom, honour, and glory to God. Each time he, and other angelic choirs sang, even other angels would join in rapturous delight and shouts of joy. Job 38:7 tells us that “when the morning stars sang together, and all the sons of God shouted for joy.
Just like in concerts and churches today, where after the musicians or choirs have lead the people to ecstasy or worship God, a round of applause usually follows. This probably made Lucifer to be filled with pride as he began to feel that he was equal with the almighty God. This ultimately led to his down fall. Isaiah 14:11-15 says “Thy pomp is brought down to the grave, and the noise of thy viols: the worm is spread under thee, and the worms cover thee. How art thou fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning! How art thou cut down to the ground, which didst weaken the nations! For thou hast said in thine heart, I will ascend into heaven, I will exalt my throne above the stars of God: I will sit also upon the mount of the congregation, in the sides of the north: I will ascend above the heights of the clouds; I will be like the most High. Yet thou shalt be brought down to hell, to the sides of the pit.”
When Satan decided to misbehave in heaven, it was angel Michael who told him, how dare you? and fought and defeated Satan because God is too mighty to fight Satan, Revelation 12:7-9 says “And there was war in heaven: Michael and his angels fought against the dragon; and the dragon fought and his angels, And prevailed not; neither was their place found any more in heaven. And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him”.
When Satan was cast out of heaven, God did not take back the gift of music from him, because Romans 11:29 says “For the gifts and calling of God are without repentance.” So Satan is still using the gift that God gave him to ascribe praise to himself and lure people to sin against God. But if the devil has decided to misuse his musical gift, it does not mean you should follow in his footsteps, because there are consequences. Jude 1:6 says “And the angels which kept not their first estate, but left their own habitation, he hath reserved in everlasting chains under darkness unto the judgment of the great day”.
Matthew 4:8-9 tells us that “the devil took Jesus up into an exceeding high mountain, and showed Him all the kingdoms of the world, and the glory thereof; and saith unto Jesus, all these things will I give thee, if thou will fall down and worship me.”
If Satan could deceive one third of the angels in heaven, and was even bold enough to tempt Jesus Christ to bow down and worship him, then no matter who you are, if you don’t trust in God fully and give time to study your Bible daily, Satan can deceive you if you listen to him. Ephesians 4:27 says “Neither give place to the devil. Today, it is so sad that many musicians and leaders are now worshipping the fallen angel, Romans 1:25 says “who exchanged the truth of God for the lie, and worshipped and served the creature rather than the Creator, who is blessed forever. Amen.”
Let’s face it, many who claim to be gospel musicians today are not even born again. James 2:19 says “Thou believest that there is one God; thou doest well: the devils also believe, and tremble.” Satan knows the Bible from cover to cover and can twist it to soothe your mind and make you believe that fornication, adultery, homosexuality, occultism, murder, illegal businesses, robbery, lying, alcoholic consumption, pride, anger and so on are not really sin, or are not as bad as people think. A drunkard would argue “Didn’t Jesus turn water into wine?” if you remember, Satan tried to twist the word of God to tempt Jesus, but, our Lord also used the same word to overcome him. Proverbs 26:2 says “the curse causeless shall not come”. So Satan knows that he cannot harm anyone unless he quotes a portion of the Bible that forbids what the person has done.
Many years ago, no one could boldly and proudly declare that they’re witches/wizards or that they belonged to any cult, but today, the devil is busy and freely using music stars to promote and initiate people into different cults and secret societies. It’s now so bad that people no longer see anything wrong in evil because the devil has painted and rebranded evil to make it look so beautiful; many celebrities and leaders are now so proud to be representatives of Satan, using their gifts and position to mislead the world and the world is fast embracing them, due to the effect of music on listeners. Today you will hear people say that a particular artist is their idol without realising that they are actually worshiping the artist by saying that. That’s why the Bible warns us to”Keep our heart with all diligence; for out of it flows the issues of life,” and evil communications corrupt good minds. All things are possible to those who believe, you can only believe what you hear or see.
However, if you accept that satanic offer or voluntarily sign that dubious satanic written contract because of worldly fame, your career may blossom magnificently, you may come into a lot of money just as they promised you, your business may soar into high heavens, you may even win a humongous lottery, but sadly, they have won your soul and you must initiate others into the cult.
In Proverbs 14:12 the Bible warns us that “there is a way which seems right to man but the end thereof is death and destruction.” Satan’s apples may look good, but, it is filled with poisonous worms. If Satan blesses you, he will surely take away all that gives you joy and demand the most important person in your life for sacrifice. Some artistes have exchanged their souls for fame and riches, forgetting that the scripture warns us that “What will it profit a man to gain the whole world and lose his soul in hell where the fire never quenches.” Satan cannot give anyone a star or make anyone shine. He can only steal or cage the glory of people when they sin and later would try to make them come begging for breakthrough, and if they play along, he would seize their souls and release their stars or fast forward their fame and riches; the fame and riches that would have come anyway, if only they had patiently waited for it. Indeed, the riches, untainted, would have been accompanied with profound and truly genuine durable pleasure. This is why the scripture says “the blessings of the Lord makes rich and add no sorrow to it.” Jesus warns us in John 10:10 that Satan only comes to steal, to kill, and to destroy.”
The devil uses beautiful things and attractive people to carry out his operations. Aside from man, the serpent was one of the most intelligent creatures God created, Genesis 3:1 says “Now the serpent was more subtil than any beast of the field which the LORD God had made”. Do you now see why the devil chose to use the serpent to carry out his mission? Unfortunately, the consequence was catastrophic for the serpent. It could no longer walk upright, but began to crawl and became the ugliest and most cursed creature on earth. “And the LORD God said unto the serpent, “Because thou hast done this, thou art cursed above all cattle, and above every beast of the field; upon thy belly shalt thou go, and dust shalt thou eat all the days of thy life:” (Genesis 3:14). Satan told Eve, and by extension, Adam, that if they ate the forbidden fruit, they would become wiser, but after man acquiesced, he became a fool, deprived of his comfort, joy, and a blissful home, and so man began to die. Satan is still deceiving millions today, just like he deceived Eve and indirectly, Adam. If you allow him to deceive you because of the promise of fame and fortunes, he will lead you to hell. You will just be another foolish soul beguiled into self-destruction and unmitigated misery. Satan lures people into wicked deeds and practices, egging them on and encouraging them with that deceptive voice in their minds, screaming “No one is watching, do it, do it, do it! You’re not the only one doing it, see, even your pastors, and mentors do it. God will understand, He’s a loving father, He will always forgive sinners!” Sadly, many foolishly fall into sin, and gets choked up with the consequences. Of course, God will forgive them, but the stigma, the scar, the shame may never disappear. For instance, when a lady commits fornication and acquires HIV or ends up with unwanted pregnancy, Satan would mock her thus:” Did I force you into sexual sin? Didn’t you enjoy it? So why are you blaming me?” And yet, there are some sins that may lead to immediate death, not giving the sinner any opportunity to plead for forgiveness.
Therefore, think about what would ultimately happen to those being used by Satan today. No matter how long you train a tiger or lion, they can never fully become a pet, they may pretend to be one for a while, but their feral nature would eventually come to the fore, and they may maul you to death. Those who sell their souls to the devil are like a ram prepared for slaughter. They may appear fresh and polished, but their souls are already in the clutches of the devil who can terminate their lives at will.

The reason why many millionaires, top celebrities and musicians ends up poor.
Many celebrities soared so high to the sky and limelight yesterday only to tumbled into obscurity, lost everything they had and fell from riches to rags. Some spent more than their income and became indebted and were forced out of their beautiful homes to the prison while some ended up living in car parks because they squandered all their money on alcohols, drugs, night club’s, gambling, divorce settlements, bad investment, multiple cars, unpaid taxes charges and lawsuits settlements. There is nothing wrong in owning private jets, fancy cars and mansions, but if you spend one billion on yourself and can’t spend at least one million on the poor around you then you are likely to become poor. Psalms 41: 1 – 2, says “Blessed is he that considereth the poor: the LORD will deliver him in time of trouble. The LORD will preserve him, and keep him alive; and he shall be blessed upon the earth.” The best protection you can give to yourself and finance is paying your tithes to God and giving to the poor. Have you realise that every billionaire gives to the poor? Many wise celebrities set up their own charity wings, schools or contribute to charities, NGOs for the relief of the poor, medical relief, aid to children etc which also makes them eligible for tax deductions.
Fame and riches are like gas in a hot air balloon, once it escapes it will be impossible to get it back. Many celebrities allowed their fame and riches to fade away in a blink of an eye. How many of the celebrities and millionaires that were famous years ago are still riding high today? Only few. 2 John 1:8 says “Look to yourselves, that we do not lose those things we worked for, but that we may receive a full reward”.

If you are successful or wealthy today, don’t ever think it is due to your intelligence or your efforts, it is the blessing of the Lord. There are people who are far more intelligent and hardworking than you, and yet, are not successful nor wealthy. Deuteronomy 7:7 says “The LORD did not set his love upon you, nor choose you, because ye were more in number than any people; for ye were the fewest of all people:”
Malachi 2:2 says “If ye will not hear, and if ye will not lay it to heart, to give glory unto my name, saith the LORD of hosts, I will even send a curse upon you, and I will curse your blessings”.
Jeremiah 13:15-16 says “Hear ye, and give ear; be not proud: for the LORD hath spoken. Give glory to the LORD your God, before he cause darkness, and before your feet stumble upon the dark mountains, and, while ye look for light, he turn it into the shadow of death, and make it gross darkness”.
So as fame and wealth comes, you must realise that:
Without the sunshine the earth would have remained in darkness,
An eagle would not fly without its wings,
A river would not flow without a source,
A flower would not have survived nor flourish with elegant beauty without soil and water,
No matter how mighty and strong a lion is, it could not devour its prey without its teeth.
Deuteronomy 10:12 says “And now, Israel, what doth the LORD thy God require of thee, but to fear the LORD thy God, to walk in all his ways, and to love him, and to serve the LORD thy God with all thy heart and with all thy soul. ”

When you are at the top, don’t forget where you came from. 2 Samuel 7:8 says ” Now therefore so shalt thou say unto my servant David, Thus saith the LORD of hosts, I took thee from the sheepcote, from following the sheep, to be ruler over my people, over Israel: ”
So when you get to the palace, don’t forget how faithful you were to God when you were in the mould house. The devil deceptively proclaimed that man would be wise after eating the forbidden fruit, but man became a fool, full of troubles. Do not please your friends, mentors, pastors or even your parents only to displease or disobey the almighty God.
Solomon started well but declined along the line, 1 Kings 3:3b tells us that “Solomon loved the LORD, walking in the statutes of his father David.” And God made King Solomon to surpass all the kings of the earth in riches and wisdom, but after God had so much blessed Solomon, the same passion with which he loved God and built a house for God; he now loved many strange women and also built a shrine for each of them. He built just one for God and many for strange women. It is not possible for any man to love strange women and love God at the same time. Solomon had seven hundred wives, princesses, and three hundred concubines; 1 Kings 11:3-4, 9says “For it was so, when Solomon was old, that his wives turned his heart after other gods; and his heart was not loyal to the LORD his God, as was the heart of his father David.”So the LORD became angry with Solomon, because his heart had turned from the LORD God of Israel, who had appeared to him twice”. May God not regret blessing you and me in Jesus name.
Deuteronomy 11:16,17 says “Take heed to yourselves, lest your heart be deceived, and you turn aside and serve other gods and worship them, lest the LORD’s anger be aroused against you, and He shut up the heavens so that there be no rain, and the land yield no produce, and you perish quickly from the good land which the LORD is giving you”.
Satan can use anyone to discourage you from serving God. A spirit spoke through Peter to discourage Jesus from going to the cross to fulfil His mission on earth, but Jesus rebuked the spirit to back off. Matthew 24:24-25 says at the end time, which is the present time ”There shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect”.Jude 1:4 says “See, I have told you beforehand.”

Music is so beautiful that all creatures respond to the rhythm. This includes flowers, insects, lunatics, birds, infants, fish, men and angels. I can’t just imagine how lonely the world would be without the wonderful gift of music. Music enlivens the world and brighten our dark and gloomy days. Indeed, without the beautiful melody and harmony of music, the world would be so dim and boring. Music is so vital to our lives and well-being, its effect on our emotions is so tremendous: it for instance soothes and calms us even when we are angry. It is so because whenever there is a sound of good music we find ourselves in harmony with its rhythm or lyrics which instinctively and profoundly resonate with our lives, situations, experiences, trials, challenges, desires, feelings, or beliefs.
Music is one of the most beautiful and first gifts that God gave to mankind just to demonstrate to us the great importance of music to our existence. The Bible mentioned music right from Genesis 4:21saying “And his brother’s name was Jubal: he was the father of all such as handle the harp and organ”.
Music brings joy to our lives and can also be a great remedy in times of hurt and pain. We need music when we are sad and when we are happy; and if only we can open up our hearts like flower to beautiful songs, we would experience from within us a refreshing beauty, blooming and flourishing like never before. The type of songs that precede from your mouth will determine so many things about you. Proverbs 18:20″A man’s belly shall be satisfied with the fruit of his mouth; and with the increase of his lips shall he be filled.”
Music is a beautiful language that when well composed moves the listeners to ecstasy or tears either by the rhythm or lyrics.
Personally, I don’t think this world would have been this harmonious and blissful without the wonderful gift of music. On several occasions, music has helped to resolve problems and chaos between couples, people, communities and nations.
Good music brings harmony to the universe and also connects the earth to heaven in unison. Whenever there’s a sound of good music, all creature and nature join in a majestic and artistic synchronization, moving men, angels and birds to sing along, even as mountains, (Isaiah 55:12) oceans and trees clap (Psalm 98:8) to produce sweet and melodic rhymes that pay homage to the profoundly creative mind of the ultimate Creator.
I truly feel very privileged to be among the few vessels through which sweet melody and the harmony of the spheres flow. I truly feel honoured to be a music maker. I owe all I am today and all I will ever be to Jesus my Saviour and King. I would never have been what I am today but for the grace of God: There many out there, who are much more gifted than me but are still wandering, aimless, nameless, and unknown somewhere in limbo- land, some have even died unsung, uncelebrated with their gifts. Again, I am not in any way better than them, it’s just the mercy of God. I am really grateful to God for using me because He could have used someone else. I would rather use my songs and music to bring melody and joy to the lives of people and not be paid than being paid millions of dollars to ruin lives.
Several passages of the Bible especially, the book of Revelation, tells us how the saints and angels are singing ceaselessly before God in heaven to reveal to us the creator’s great love for music, and since human beings are created in God’s very image, we are also framed to love and have passion for music. This is why even little babies are excited and highly responsive to beautiful sound of music by shaking and moving their bodies to the tune. It’s another reason why many parents use songs to comfort and cheer their babies whenever they are crying or happy. Parents also sing lullabies to make their babies/children go to sleep. It is also said that children who are exposed to good music are usually more brilliant and smarter than those not exposed to good music.
Music is one of the fastest and best ways to spread information. Music makes it much easier for us to remember instructions, specific teachings, and general information. It can also be used to remind us of the past. People can easily forget what they have been told, but they don’t easily forget songs they have learned or listened to, that’s why God told Moses in Deuteronomy 31:19 saying “Now therefore write ye this song for you and teach it the children of Israel: put it in their mouths, that this song may be a witness for me”.
Good music brings people with different tongues and colour together and foster good relationship between them. That’s why it is very difficult to find a good advert, a TV show or movie without a piece of music in the background. It’s rare to find a very big gathering of people celebrating some events or regular church services without good music. Churches with good music always attract more people than those who do not have good music.
From research, I have come to realise that most songs that have touched the world and remain evergreen on the lips of many, are songs with pleasant universal themes such as love, nature, courage, gratitude, faith, victories, fearlessness, determination, bravery, honesty, racial harmony, family ties, friendships, humility, purity, incorruptibility and so on. But it is so sad that the trend of music today has evolved into a farce. It is shockingly becoming a highly deceptive medium for misleading people into wrong thinking and wrong doing. It is a medium that is very, very negative, toxic and morally destructive. Above all, it is spiritually deadly. There’s been myriad of stories about how songsters and musicians have practically sold their souls to the devil just to become globally famous and phenomenally successful with financial networths running into hundreds of millions of dollars, aside an immensely growing and astounding cult of followers. Many talented artists and songwriters have deviated from creating good music to making sexually explicit offensive and bland songs that have no capacity to comfort, encourage or give joy. The truth is that each time such songs are relayed on radio, TV or on the internet, the message gradually percolates into the eardrums, the mind and the soul of the listener, especially, when played frequently. Listeners, naturally begin to sing along to such music subconsciously, even though it’s a bad song.

The‘preseason mixtape volume I: the warm up sessions is a brand new 2018 mix tape compilation by the hip hop group RBN (rich by nature). The tape is a product of the consistent collaboration of 3 artistes over a period of 3 years in the underground hip hop scene. It is also the groups first official mixtape.

The whole project can be summed up as a training period for the group. The album title was inspired by the usual preseason training activities and matches football teams played before the start of a new campaign in order to test their abilities, maintain fitness, and hone their skills.

The 23 plus track list is a nonstop lyrical hip hop onslaught over some popular rap song instrumentals and unknown instrumentals. It features 7 bonus tracks, 2 of which are 15 minutes each.

The mixtape can also be seen as a modern ode to lyric driven hip hop, as can be seen by the groups official lyric sheet on genius.com and the wide range of emotions and topics that are addressed in the tape. From the dark emotions of the villain, empty spaces to the happy feel songs such as shine, way up to the groovy tracks such as jane/john doe and pull up, there is something for every type of hip hop lover.

The preseason mixtape volume I is a 2 hour long modern day hard core rap mix tape. And it is highly recommended for the avid hip hop head.

It is due for release today and HipHopHead will bring you the link in a few hours. Let the anticipation build up. WE CANT WAIT! Download outlets will be available on our official whatsapp group and on all our social profiles.

Rigid Emcee recently released his highly anticipated Mixtape titled “LICENSED TO ILL”. It has created a full wave of interest in the Northern Hip Hop community. The project contains 20 solid tracks that express Rigid Emcee’s thought.

He spits dope lyrics over great beats allowing all listeners to completely absorb his music. His passion and Hip Hop experience clearly is displayed on this project. Mixtapes nowadays are super over-rated but for Rigid he has a project that will over shadow any new Mixtape out for 2018.

From the first track “No introduction” to the last song “Hands Up“, he tears it up with memorable songs that can be appreciated in the Naija Hip Hop scene. It features BOC Madaki, V5ive, Kenny Wonder, Cman, Talisman, Trino Coaster, BlackHouse, Stesh, Dwb, Pnky Bwoy, and Kammill.

This Mixtape sets his path to stardom and we hope he continues to ride the wave he has already created and continues to GRIND 24-7.”
