Twitter is on fire and D-Black is trending. The CEO of Black Avenue Music, Desmond Blackmore known widely as D-Black preparing the BAM Nation for the release of a new freestyle titled Energy, explained why he “digressed” from hip-hop.
The Seihor rapper tweeted;
“A lot of peeps been talking about I’ve digressed from hip-hop.. I’m not spitting bars… I’ve switched up…the lyrics sound wack…
“I got to dumb it down to touch the masses. I got to be on the charts with the cats rapping in Twi, Ga, Pidgin, Ewe. I got to have a nationwide hit.
“I got to have them rap with me after every 4 bars... I got to headline shows in Tamale, Sunyani cha..I got feed the family and cake up Chale !!
“So yea we dropped the bar lyric wise, but became more successful, God’s grace. But yea with that being said, sorry I did..2moro we back @ it”
“The rapper also pointed out that he was one of the very few Anglophone rappers making commercial hit songs.
“Ok… Well… A lot people forget that I’m one of the only Anglophone rappers who successfully makes commercial records that blow up on local radio.
“It was essential for survival... We can’t list English / Anglophone rappers known nationwide that can headline concerts cha. Sad but reality.
“I can’t rap in any local language; I don’t have a firm enough grasp of them to. So these English bars got to be basic enough to touch everyone.
“I’m not an MC .. I’m an entertainer, a business.. We can’t all be lyrically gifted. All you can be is YOU. Tomorrow we go drop some hiphop”
