Khaligraph Jones defends himself as K.O.T critics his Nipsey Hussle tribute track

Khaligraph Jones is one of Africa’s talented rappers, and the O.G felt he had to salute the fallen Hop Hop icon Nipsey Hussle.

The untimely death of the Los Angeles based rapper has had a variety of reactions from family, friends and fans alike. And the O.G Papa Jones was also moved to drop a tribute to the legendary figure. Sharing his verse on Nipsey’s ‘Racks In The Middle’ track, Baba Yao spared on expensive in giving an education to the ignorant folk in the interwebs. Touching on Nipsey’s character and his philanthropic acts, the verse was revealing and touching as he likened himself to the Grammy-nominated rapper. And as the track dropped it seemed to receive a mixed bag of reactions.

To many, it became clear that the tribute may have just been a come up for Jones, to ride on the untimely death of the father of two. Kenyans on Twitter did not hold back when it came to criticizing the rapper’s choice to pay tribute to the international artist and yet did nothing for local greats such as Kantai and Sagini.

Unfortunately for Jones, it seems his defense did not hold any water, as the court of public opinion continued to crucify him for his Nipsey tribute. However, it seems that a few people appreciated the lyricist, coming to his defense.

Nipsey Hussle who was brutally gunned down last week is among the Hip Hop’s most forward-thinking artists. According to an article by The Sauce, Hussle, real name Ermias Davidson Asghedom was of Eritrean descent but grew up in south Los Angeles and was a member of the Rollin’ 60s street gang as a teenager. He later became a community organizer and was involved with the Destination Crenshaw Arts Project. Known for major tracks such as ‘Racks In The Middle’ and ‘Double Up,’ Hussle was nominated for ‘Best Rap Album’ Grammy in 2019.
