The veteran rapper in an interview with Mercury Quaye on Hitz FM’s “Cruise Control” lamented over why some Ghanaian rappers cannot paint images with lyrics when producing songs and yet call themselves creative act persons.

According to him, the current crop of musicians do not learn from the experienced musicians who through their hard work paved way in the Ghanaian music industry “that is why their songs don’t inspire him”.
