Wakadinali, a rap group that is made up of Scar, Domani Munga and Sewersydaa, has dropped a new cypher and we are really feeling it. No, like really!
The track dubbed The Rong Cypher reaffirms the popular notion that the trio are among the best hip hop heads that Kenya has ever had. Put simply, it’s a masterpiece.
As you listen to the jam, you will not only appreciate the ingenuity of the group that is also known as Rong Rende but also their storytelling skills which incorporates nuanced imagery.
Believe you me, this track will leave you scratching your head as you try to understand what the rappers meant when they said certain things, you’ll wonder if they have a deeper meaning but then again maybe it’s just me.
Scar and Domani are so dope that every line on this has a punchline. Look at it like this, if you wanted to quote a line that impressed you, you would have such a difficult time.
Of course, you’ll love the part where Scar says, “Siwezi pigia binadamu magoti, mi si Chris Darlin,” or “Mimi ndo ule mtoto alipewa wembe akaisharpen,” or “Nilimarry rap ndo maana inashinda ikimiscarry.”
Or where the part where Domani says, “Hawanoni na wako lunch 24/7 kaa thong,” “Paranoia ndio utamu wa bangi,” or “Tuko East na ati tunashikisha kuliko Meru mzima,” or “Mi hushi kwa jungle George atanyuria.”
Like I said, it’s hard to single out punchlines in this jam because every verse will make you think hard. Honestly, I am glad to be alive to witness the reinvention of Kenyan hip hop.
After listening to this greatness, I can only hope that we will see The Rong Cypher 2, 3, 4 etc. because let’s be honest, this stuff is pure flames!
Watch The Rong Cypher below and tell us what you think.
Comme ci, comme ça
