We argued that this music is bigger than rap and Dancehall but fans of both rappers are already pitching against each other. SoWe decided to bring to you lines that showed that they both were dissing each other on the track.
Break Down: How The FlowKing Stone x Sarkodie x Shatta Wale Collab Happened.
*Me deliver flow so the kids go wild up
Sarkodie implies he is delivering great flows so Stone has gone wild trying to match up
*Me ne other rappers, huge margin
Well, the tension is long over due, but Sarkodie is making it clear that between Stone and him, huge margin so don’t bother comparing.
*Bow Down To Greatness
Sark is on the track, he is telling Stone to bow to him because he represents greatness
*Y3de frafra te s3 rice and stew
Sark paused for a second to change the flow delivery, he tells Stone that he is able to mix up the flow like rice and stew
*Obiaa ntu ne ky3, Tema boys in the building
For a moment, between 2008 and 2012, Tema boys stole the rap game from Kumasi. Sarkodie is making it clear that although it is a Kumasi track, hats must go off to show respect to the presence of TM boy in the building
He went a bit deeper so much of the explanation will rely on literary devices etc.
*No matter what the hater go do, Im still on the rise (rice) like stew
He uses homophones (rice, rise)- Sark said he mixed up the flow like rice and stew but Stone throws a jab at Sark that he is on the rice (the one Sark is missing) like stew.
*Magye me din nti 3n3 mop3 Nsia a, ludo
Again, he uses homophones (words sounds same but different meaning). Its been rumoured that Sark has been swerving a collab. Stone is trying to say that he is now popular so if Sark is searching for six (Nsiah )-Nsiah is Stone’s surname- he plays the ludo instead because he is hard to personally come by
*Mo anyane gyata no, me de mo b3y3 dinner
You know how Sarkodie called for the feature? Stone is telling Sark that he woke the lion (him) so Sark is going to be his dinner.
*Only one Stone, killi birds two
The track had two artiste, Stone is trying to say he killed these two artiste on the track
*No matter the weather, we dey reign (rain)
Stone implies that it doesn’t matter what is happening, he still reigns as the best rapper. The weather and rain also suggests he beats Sarkodie no matter the beat (weather).
*Na )se )de me hy3 f)m, )nim s3 mey3 aduaba
Many thought Sark did not want to do a feature with Stone because he did not want him to share in his fame, Stone is trying to tell him that his efforts to put him down made he grow because he is a seed.
We did our best to ‘decode’ these lines suggesting that they both went hard at each other on the track. For fans who are trying to make it a competition, We suggests you look at the bigger picture (great music by all standards).
