Social media picked up the story that veteran rapper and Kennis Music recording artist, Eedris AbdulKareem had ‘dissed’ Don Jazzy on a new track and everyone automatically got in the debate in a bid to find out what it was all about.
Read the diss which was in the second verse of his song below:
‘They say Don Jazzy sey if you dey rap, you dey waste your time, sey if you be rapper, your papa no go dey proud…this is getting crazy Jazzy better watch your mouth. I’ve been yor number one fan when Mo’Hits was sold out, rap is the reason why you are getting that Naira, rap na the reason why you’re getting that endorsement. Without the evolution of rappers, you be nonsense‘,
Now, the statement that Don Jazzy made about rappers not being appreciated by parents caused a social media frenzy last year and is over a year old. He said in an interview with HipHopWorld in February, 2012: ‘If you decide that you want to do rap, there is one thing that you should put at the back of your mind; you parents are not proud of you whether you like it or not‘.
After rappers called Don Jazzy out, he quickly issued a statement apologizing and attempted to remedy the situation stating that his statement had been misconstrued.
Don Jazzy has since sent a tweet to Eedris playing the role of the ‘bigger man’ saying on twitter:
‘@idris_Abdulkarm Baba if u wooz me, i go still bend down clean your shoe o. i hail. Love your new jam. keep the flag flying boss. God bless‘.
Eedris then responds: ‘Don jazzy say if u dey rap say your papa no go dey proud…. ? That’s an insult. I go wooz u. Am a great fan of don jazzy but am disappointed. don jazzzy say if u be rapper ur papa no go dey proud of you.. Haba, jazzy so u are not proud of us?
Eedris further added ‘E neva reach to clean shoe bro. It is just a tot’.
Maybe, just maybe Eedris only just got wind of Don Jazzys’ February 2012 statement but on the flipside fabmagazineonline.com has written about this and so have a lot of media outlets, hence I believe Eedris might have got what he really wants, ‘A chance to be in the spotlight again.’
The question now is, ‘For how long?’
Let us see if his strategy works out as he may just get a response from other rappers he mentioned in the song including Modenine, Terry tha Rapman, Illbliss and Dr Fresh.
It may actually be a sadder scenario if he is ignored.
