The identity of hip hop has always been debated. Who's the better emcee? Who rules the 'rap-kingdom'? Who's the dopest rapper in Africa? And as the sun illuminates the world, so does hip hop! And while the debate about "who's better?" tarries on, Nigerian born international hip-hop star 'McSKILL ThaPreacha' transcends all that hype with the release of his 9th studio album; "THE 9TH CHAPTER".
Hip hop music has not lived up to it's reputation in recent times owing to the vast saturation of rap in today's music industry. Growing up to a rich hip hop culture in the 90's, it's hard to see what hip hop music has turned into. There's been so much garbage out there that it's been discouraging to find a creatively crafted hip hop album or song from the motherland that's worth noting. Now, don't get us wrong! African hip hop artistes have grown exponentially in terms of delivery, concepts, creativity and messages in their songs but that's not really been enough to convince true hip hop heads that the future of Pan-African music is in safe hands.
