Who Is The Top Rapper In Nigeria?

The top rappers, to me, are:

Mode Nine

MI

Ikechukwu

Gino

Naeto C

Freestyle in n particular order.

In terms of lyrics, organization of punch lines and the interspersing of metaphors, it will be between MI and ModeNine but commercially, maybe Ikechukwu. What do U guys think?

These are some lines from the Ruggedy himself

I teach through my music, give you lesson to learn

No matter wetin them try to do, my fire still go burn

I don speak ma mind and I go still speak more

You either love me or hate me in peace or war            (peace or war)

Some actually ask why I spat the way I did with so much venom

Say if I no get beef why I no just call them to tell them

How you go talk to person wey he dey feel say him dey too much     (big bros)

Talking about where Mode 9 get his lyrics from, go to www.azlyrics.com and  read dem Game, pac, 50 and so on lyrics, u will find out wht am talking abt

@khanye

from all u posted i can see u hate rugged. How can u say all those posted lyrics are rubbish? Those r the lyrics that made him what he is today. (Peace or war).

The tracks that hods all those mode9 lyrics u posted has got him nothing. The little publicity he gets are from touching tracks like 'styleA, Cry, 9ja girls' an average rapfan doesn't even kno elbowroom, Ogun Isoye, 419 state of mind, contradictions, formidable e.t.c which r tracks on ma phone and love to listen to.

It is possible mode surpass rugged in d ranks but 4 now rugged stil leads. Don't put sentiments, may be cos u luv hardcore or so. I listen to so many too, but, hardcore is just like a part in rap

i think u made a big mistake, there is no way u'l select top 10raprs in 9ja and rugged wont b in top5. Thou he is ma no1. Raprs like Mi, ikechku and naeto c should not be there, else Ajasa, daGRIN, 2SHOT and Elajo Shld also be in it.

Have u 4got the likes of OD, T da rapman, saucekid e.t.c

Its no doubt today dat rugged and mode are d most respectd, others like Mi naeto C looks promising but might only be @ their best form therefore don't judge them now.

RUGGED and MODE av maintaind the tempo for long and there is no doubt they r talented. For u to make a list like dis u r only tryin to show ur hatred 4 rugged.

I don't av a top ten but wil giv a top5

Rugged

Mode

terry d rapman

saucekid

Gino

freestyle

don't judge me wrong i like both rugged and mode but attitude of guys lik khanye makes me sometimes atck him.

Rugd can also do hrdcore 2 some xtnct but prfrs to entertain.

Mode can't really entrtn but does more hrdcore than rugd.

Terry- this guy is good but hasn't gotten enuf publcty.(does hrdcor lik 9)

MCC MCC!!!

MCC??

MCC is the best rapper in naija period. Nobodys got the pidgin flow down to perfection like he has. His slang is flawless and never corny ( its very easy to be corny in pidgeon). His stories are beleivable and can be understood by evarybody. If you dont beleive me check out " mcc precius" on youtube.

@

y'all.

There's no need to get childish when sittin opinions. E'rone is entitled to his.

That said we have talented rappers in 9ja.

But let's see it this way,

we all talk bout the world has become a global village,

so there's commonality in almost all spheres.

The same parameters is NOW being used to measure/judge e'rthing.

So in any aspect whoever has a more global outlook is King.

There r rules guys. Especially if u didnt invent the category or genre

Case in point: 9ja didnt invent football, but we r good and have our own flavour, but football is a global game.

We win in local competitions but they whoop our Bottom silly when we go out there, internationally.

We didnt invent hiphop either, but we have our local flavour too which is good but limiting

(tho depending on where u wanna play, locally or globally)

If Akon was singing in his Senegalese lingo, i wonder how gloabal he wld be by now.

It sooo happens that in Hiphop the main criteria and note i said "main" for judgin' a tite emcee is lyrics

Mainly hiphop is a LISTENING art form. Yea u cld make pple bob their head as u spit.

Hihop focus is not to get pple to d dance floor(pop is already doin that) but to LISTEN

Soulja boy connects wit "his pple" he moves the crowd, got the club bangin' and all

but c'mon guys we know HIPHOP wise he aint on d radar.

The reason being his lyrical strenght and un hiphop beats.

He may even sell more than Nas, and pack more crowd and fan as well but that wont change the fact.

Lets not confuse the skill that matters with appeal.

mode 9 is just someone who goes through another rapper lyrics and build up his - Who's Lyric? - I want you to give me a good example.

IF you think Rugged got some good lyrics then i want you to give me some here.

Here are some of Mode's PUNCH LINES:

Grown man dont play with little boys, i guess you all should go find some toys - I'm Not Like You (Mode 9)

You Guyz are just Diskette (Ruggedman) We Hardrive (Modey Babatunde) - Pentium IX (Mode 9)

I heard your rhymes are they are not working me, too jerky for me, MY WORD PLAY IS TOO HARD! - Talking to you (Mode 9)

You got the blingz player, but i got the skill to make you go dumb - Hip Pop (Mode 9)

Mode will always be da best with his Lyrical Ishhhhhhhhhhhhh, Word!!!!!

Yeah, I am young and will soon become young millionaire take it or leave it. We all know that Rugged rep Naija to da core and mode 9 is just someone who goes through another rapper lyrics and build up his. We aint shooting guns here, if he think he's good enuff, den he should go and start rapping there in the US. For me, Rugged will come first, MI, Gino, Terry da rap man and so on before Mode 9

Thanks for d comment but lyrically Mode 9 is not better than Rugged man cos that poo he do is not done here in Naija and we dont care for such shits. Rugged has something of that nature too check out WONT BATTLE. Everything tracks of Mode 9 is always about diss except few like cry.

He can never make money or make name here in Nigeria if he continue that way and if it is about dissing, he will always meet Rugged man there cos he gats it all.

Common guys no need 4 d insults

point of correction game & wayne dont do hardcore rap and neither does mode9.

Top MC's should b decided by market value and best MC's by lyrics.

Top MC is undoubtably Ruggedman, mode9 is only after him cos he knows who wears d crown, u dont get famous 4 killin a chicken u have to go after a lion, if u succeed like ruggedy u get recognised & applauded and if u dont u still get recognised as somebody,

Best mc by lyrical content is between mode9 & mi, but like some1 pointed out they are still largely unknown & undervalued, mode9 should emulate the likes of 2pac, biggie smalls, jay, nas wayne game (have anyone noticed it, but i think game got igbo blood always praise singing in hip tracks like he's trying to win over people particularly fellow artist) and do mainstream, do what people would generally like if u are makin a personal album str8 from ur heart keep that poo in ur house dont release it.

Verse 1

Just because I open my mouth

People dey hala, people dey shout

Them dey kolo both for streets and inside the house

Including universities, polytechnics, respect me

Because I don yarn wetin them don keep inside them chest since

I speak for shoemakers

I also speak for mechanics

I speak for those wey hear some kind of rap and don't understand it

I speak for those wey don vex so they dem tear them clothes

And for those wey no fit talk unless Oga door don close

I speak to those wey dey ask me where I don dey since

While I pity ones wey enter rap without knowing the basics

Makes it da real or fake rubbish

Because makeshift- no dey last- na Matrix

Like actors wey dey waka pass

I teach through my music, give you lesson to learn

No matter wetin them try to do, my fire still go burn

I don speak ma mind and I go still speak more

You either love me or hate me in peace or war

Chorus (talking)

Verse 2

Some actually ask why I spat the way I did with so much venom

Say if I no get beef why I no just call them to tell them

How you go talk to person wey he dey feel say him dey too much

When ofcourse we know say the cause na plenty promo from big bros

Of course I laid low

Watched the fake glow grow

Prematurely, I knew it had to end for surely

It was insults

I took with a pinch of salt and a bottle of malt

Until the voice in ma head say

”Na time to put a halt to”

Da fake hype, fake promo ,fake rap

Them don too believe that's why e be like say I set trap

Wey them fall inside as I glide

Rush to wash all of them like bar beach high tide

Those flows came from inside

My brain, wey them don dey try to stain since

Like puttin white cloth inside a bowl of paint or blue ink

I don speak ma mind and I go still speak more

You either love me or hate me in peace and war

Chorus (talking)

Verse 3

My time na wetin I take to go investigate

And drop flow wey everybody go fit relate with

Children go fit to play with

Hit da stage with

Trip and split your brains with

Because its filled with facts wey go make you flash back to past tracks to criticize

Here, take eh heh, put am inside

Make you feel the words, make you feel the vibes

Eedris yack Tetuila with in leg, nobody talk

I name names and criticize lyrics, them crow like rooster

They run around like chicken wey them cut in neck

Some no fit wey for while others dey wait for wetin I go talk next

Another- send me mail dey analyze ma lyrics

They pick out points from deep inside-I was tripped

Now I don turn one man fan to ma own critic

Which also makes you ma fan whether or not you admit it

I don speak ma mind and I go still speak more

You either love me or hate me in peace and war

U dey vex me with your comment, Rugged man is not a rapper, He's just a Singer. He keep doin local, wack poo! 90% of the guys albums are beef songs, but why?

Ikechukwu got more flow than Ruggedboy, Wine em well as won him 2 awards already this year before the albums is even out.

Ruggedboy he came into the game dissing people, he's not even sure of his own skills!!!!
