Ghanaian rapper and producer E.L believes that no rapper is better than another in the music industry.

The rapper noted there is no need for someone to hold him or herself as the best rapper, indicating he does not also subscribe to the increasing spate of unhealthy rivalry in the music space.

Speaking in Skype interview with MzGee on TV3 New Day, E.L, who claims not to have heard the Sarkodie’s ‘Sub Zero’ track, noted that there is no best rapper in Ghana.

The rapper, who is out with a new video, ‘Efa Wo Ho Ben’, stressed that when it comes to rap, no one is the best.

“I don’t place myself anywhere the thing is as I have grown and I have come to realise that, when it comes to rap nobody is better than anybody. There is no best rapper. Rap is an art form and the thing about art is you can’t do arts better than anybody else…so all the competition that goes on and stuff, I’m in a class of my own… when I see those lists, it’s sad to me because people are getting boxed up and I’m just not in that class,”

Asked where he places himself in the Ghanaian rap space, E.L responded that he is in a class of his own.

He explained:

“I’m just in a class of my own. I’m not for everybody I don’t want to be for everybody. I don’t want to be in everybody’s top five I want to be in the people who matters’ top five and the people who” matter are not many.

I’m just in a class of my own – E.L reveals new direction
