11 African Rappers That Got Killed On Their Own Track

These African rappers got murdered on their own track. We will remember them. We’re used to rappers claiming superiority over their peers on wax, it’s a harmless sport. Fans take it a step further by claiming their favorite is a better rapper/artiste than yours. Everyone gets riled up, and egos unfortunately get bruised. Artists eventually catch wind of the mostly negative comments and then run with it. [Case study: Nicki Minaj vs Cardi B]. Next thing you know. Both artists are beefing. Rappers combining talents on a track is one of the bedrocks of hip hop. It’s like Superman teaming up with Iron Man to take down Thanos, or Kobe Bryant (Rest In Peace) signing with the 90’s Bulls for a one off game, to play with Jordan and Pippen. it’s unfathomable. Hip hop Collaborations give us a chance to see some of our favorites together on records, but sometimes as fans we can’t help but pick sides. We often listen with the sole intention of starting debates on who we think said what or we presume got “bodied.” Rappers are very much aware of these debates as well and are listening keenly to what is being said about them. Hip hop is built around masochism and rappers will choose to out rap you if the opportunity presents itself. You don’t want your competition stealing your spotlight, but at the same time, you also don’t want them cashing in on a lackluster verse either. It’s a conundrum that I am glad I don’t have to worry about. That’s for the hip-hop artists to figure out and for us fans to enjoy. As part of my ongoing dedication to documenting African hip hop history, I have decided to highlight some cases in African hip hop where I think African rappers got murdered on their own shit.
