Ghanaian rapper LJ is a Lyrical Beast!

I have been a great admirer of Ghanaian rapper LJ (Lyrical Joe) for exactly two (2) years now.

This was when I first watched the video to his song ‘Alright’ which features Toffdawg.

I had not watched a relatively new Ghanaian rapper releasing exhibiting a solid lyrical dexterity like he did for a long time, since Sarkodie and Flowking Stone.

Watching LJ continually dish out some of the fine rap tunes in the music industry, it was not surprised to see him listed on Sarkodie’s ‘Biibi Ba’ song.

Of course, he has worked his way out and I felt happy for him on that.

He continues to dictate his craft and watching him yesterday on TV3‘s Music Music, I got carried away by what he does best. Before last night, I had not watched the program for God knows how long. However, seeing advert during the week that the likes of LJ, CJ Biggerman, and Amerado will be on the show, I decided to stay at home and watch them.

As I lie on the sofa in my room to watch various acts perform, I only had to watch them perform and pass my judgment as usual.

When LJ was announced as the next act, I smiled. On his second song performance, I subconsciously walked out of the sofa, joined the GH-rap ambiance and moved along like I was also inside TV3’s Studio B.

Again, he wowed me with his energy, audience communication, choice of songs to perform, and many others.

He is one of the few who is endowed with fine lyrical content, and he replicated that during last night’s TV3 Music Music hosted by Nana Kwame and Benedicta Gafah. I will liken him to the likes of Sarkodie, M.anifest, Flowking Stone, M.I., Cassper Nyovest, Nasty C, and a couple of great rappers on the continent. Like these rappers, LJ is also a rap beast!

My wish is to see LJ achieve higher heights in his career as he envisions taking Ghana to the Grammys.
