In our part of the world, it is no secret that singers in the music business make more money than rappers.
However, award-winning rapper, Sarkodie has said that there’s no way he’s ever going to switch from rapping to singing.
Speaking to NYDJ in the studios of YFM in Kumasi, the Sark Nation boss stated that despite all the money he stands to make if he switches to singing, he prefers to stick to rap.
“You need to stand for something. If you don’t stand for something, you’ll be missing out. No amount of money will make me jump on certain songs even though I know they will blow. I have to feel it. If I don’t feel it…” he told host, NYDJ.
Sarkodie also revealed that he doesn’t just jump unto any beat to create a commercial song. According to him, he need to feel it before he can work with it.
“M.O.G sends me like thousands of beats and I choose the ones that I like so if the fans are lucky and it turns out to be commercial, good for them but I don’t sit down and say I need a commercial song for them to jam to. If I hear a beat and it’s dope (I’ll go in). The tones in U Go Kill Me was something different that made me rap on it” ,” he added.
Sarkodie also went on to add that he plans to stick to his genre.
“I’ve never been that type of an artist. I just record music and if the beat is good, I jump. I’m not going to start singing like Davido and Mugeez. If I do a song that needs them, I’ll link them up” he said.
