Last year Aipate’s top 1o Kenyan Hip Hop Artists list was one that was met with mixed reactions, a good number criticizing the list for not ranking the popular musician as the best. Most critics, however, have less undersatnding od the dynamics that comes with compilation of Hip Hop lists. Khaligraph Jones appeared 3rd on the list and some of his fans felt he was deserved the top spot. This year,2016, we see him going hard for the crown, just the same way he does with his rap. He did that “Ting Bado Malo” jam wih Kantai and, currently, is literally the most preferred rapper for any musician to do a project collaboration with. He has featured in songs with Phy, Abbas, King Kaka, Dj Creme, Skales among others and we see coming up even stronger as the year progresses.
What makes the case of Papa Jones more interesing is that he announced the release of his debut EP, somestimes around mid 2016 and that will put him as a top contender considering that the likes of Kaka and Octopizzo have projects for their fans.
Being one of the best lyricists around, we believe that he has all that it takes to be at the very top, and as soon as this year.
