Producer JMJ hosts 11 new Rappers on “Riddim Of The GODS” Hiphop 2021 Tape

Published

Producer JMJ is back again with his “Riddim Of The GODS” Project for 2021. One would have thought he would put the ‘already-popular-A-List’ Rappers on it but no, he swerved everyone! This time the direction is different but unique; he takes a big leap to enlist 10 of Ghana’s hot new Rap heads for this year’s first tape he subtitles “The New Kings”.

 

As a Producer who loves to spot new talent and project them into mainstream, I took time to pick these guys for Phase 2 of my ROG Hiphop. In fact, the list of names that came to when I posted on social media I needed the names of Rappers to enlist for the next Hiphop tape, the list was so heavy and scary I almost deleted the post from Facebook. The line-up was very long with dope young rappers it was difficult to pick a final list to work with. But upon deliberations with the Team and engaging the artistes respectively, we arrived at 10 names we think availed themselves for this tape”, Producer JMJ explained.

 

Joshua Raphaelson, as he is known in private life is known, according to history, as the first African Producer to release a riddim in Africa. In 2008, he produced Africa’s first riddim titled “Trigger Riddim” that enlisted Samini, Stonebwoy, Iwan, Mugeez (or R2Bees), Ghetto KB among others. Within a space of 10 years, he released about 4 other riddim projects that gave (more) shine to listed Ghanaian Acts as well as producing hit songs from those.

 

Ghana’s 2015 BET Winner, Stonebwoy’s first hit single that went viral was “Hills And Valleys”, done on Producer JMJ’s “Trigger Riddim”. The ever popular “Scatter Badmind” song by MTV & MOBO Winning Act, Samini, was also produced on JMJ’s riddim project titled “Missile Riddim”.

 

11 Years later, Producer JMJ bounced back to launch “Riddims Of The GODS”, a brand identity he has coined to maintain and sustain riddim culture in Africa by doing it annually. The first edition of his “Riddim Of The GODS” (ROG) came with 5 separate tapes running through genres of Dancehall, Afrobeats, Hiplife et al with over 30 Artistes listed for it including huge names like Sarkodie, Samini, Stonebwoy, VVIP, Prince Bright (BukBak), EL, Edem, Akwaboah, Adina, Eno Barony, just to name a few.

 

“The New Kings” tape which is the very first on his 2nd edition of the ROG tape has enlisted 10 artistes namely Kofi Jamar, AY Poyoo, Phrimpong, Keeny Ice, Lyrical Joe, Amerado, Cedi Rap, King Paluta, Lokal, Bryan The Mensah and Boiiisam.

 

“They have been so eager from day one when we began working on the tape. They wish I was even gonna release the tape just after they voiced on the riddim; this shows how enthusiast they are and badly want their works out there on this project”, JMJ added.

 

The project kick-off for “The New Kings” tape is expected to be launched this week, 1st week of April across all digital platforms with a first exclusive stream via Boomplay.

 

Boomplay has been very instrumental in the “Riddim Of The GODS” Project. The maiden edition was partnered by them and all 5 tapes were exclusively released via their platform. Boomplay Music is Africa’s biggest and No. 1 music streaming network, available for download on the web, Android and iOS.

What Shatta Wale and Medikal did after their release from prison

Shatta Wale was on remand  for staging report that he was shot and Medikal joined him later at the Ankaful Prison after he was arrested for brandishing a gun on social media.

The two, on Tuesday morning, were granted bail in their respective cases by an Accra Circuit Court. The dancehall act is to re-appear in court on 9th November for his adjourned case to be heard.

The ‘Omo Ada’ rapper is also to reappear in court on November 9, 2021. The musicians who are friends after going through the bail process to be released from the Ankaful Prison headed over to a beach for a ‘spiritual cleansing’ bath.

Some people hold the belief that after anyone comes out from prison, they must have a sea bath to wash away any bad omen before they are incorporated into society.

Shatta Wale and Medikal accordingly did this at a beach in the company of their close friends and family. Watch the video below of how it went down.
