Khaligraph Jones has dropped the much-awaited 4th installation of his gravely revered Khali Cartel series.
After teasing that the next edition of the series was well underway and would completely disrupt the rap scene, the We Be Happening lyricist has kept his word and dropped yet the most fiery and unmatched project, with newbies Katapilla, Shekina Karen, Murasta, Achicho, Elisha Elai and Ben-c, all of whom showcase their shrewd rap ingenuity, spitting hard-knock lyrics against an utterly thumping instrumental that is masterminded by Aress 66.
The video has a crime scene setting and opens with Khali spearheading an intel meeting, telling his supposed juniors that they need to instantaneously go on the prowl and track down 6 culprits (played by all 6 of the new cats) who are procuring illegal business in their quest for easy and quick riches, and are rolling around in a black van.
Khali’s police officers catch up on them just as they are robbing what looks like a bank and a tag of war ensues, with all of them brandishing firearms. Khali and his able squad finally catch up with Elisha Elai and Ben-c, while the rest escape narrowly.
The punchlines are hardhitting and memorable and will have you scratching your head. Some of the most memorable ones include:
Si ni wanyama tunalalanga mbuga-Shekina Karen
Ka we ni simba mi samba wa Yuda-Katapilla
Mi ndio ratili nawapima nyuma na mbogi ya Fida-Achicho
Naskia nyi ni ma-MC, mkitaka kubonga let’s speak-Khaligraph
Hata maji siwezikata, mi huvumilia kama cactus-Ben C
Kantai ni ka ame-back, wallahi mtanitii-Elisha Elai
This 4th installation is a masterminded by Khali, in collaboration with Blu Ink and Odi Bets. All 6 of the rap heads were the top 6 finalists of the Odinare Challenge that was also overseen by Khali.
