Ghana Hip hop or GH hip-hop music genre is a subculture and art movement which developed in Ghana during the late 1990s. The hiphop genre came into existence in Ghana through Reggie Rockstone, who is known as the hiplife father[1] and other notable musicians such as Jayso and Ball J. It first came to Ghana as Hiplife where Reggie Rockstone introduced a fusion of hiphop beats with African sounds to create a whole new genre. Hiplife is different from Western Hiphop because it involves local dialects such as Twi, Ga, Ewe, Hausa and broken-English, popularly known in Ghana as "pidgin". Some hiphop musicians in the early era were Reggie Rockstone, Kae Sun, Sway DeSafo, Samini, Okyeame Kwame, Bradez, Buk Bak, D-Black, Sarkodie, Tic Tac, Obrafour, 4x4, Kwaw Kese, Ayigbe Edem and upcoming artists such as Lil Shaker, Bra Kevin, Asumadu N-Dex,Wanluv, Yaa Pono, Loone, Asem and EL. Some songs from this era of hiphop were Asabone, Eye Mo De Anaa, and you no get money.

Hiphop evolution

Fast forward twenty-four years,hiphop evolutionalized to a more diverse and trendy culture where festivals such Chale-Wote[2] was a means by which the culture was made widespread. This brought about groups such as yoyo tinz[3] which promoted Ghanaian hiphop through TV shows and documentaries. This also brought about the induction of "Kasahari" which is a twi word meaning "Fast talk" and its mostly associated to musicians that rap fast.[4] This was a term giving to musicians who rapped very fast but using the local dialect known as twi. Some products of Kasahari are notably Sarkodie and Obrafour.

Hiphop today

Hiphop in Ghana experienced some tensions between two well-known rappers namely Sarkodie and Manifest. This beef came into existence when Sarkodie in a song titled Bossy, used a popular phrase of Manifest and this sparked tensions between them. Manifest reacted to this by doing a song titled the godMc and this tension went on and on.[5] This tension can be likened to that of Jayz and Nas rap beef.

Hiphop in Ghana has been taken over now by the "new school" with acts such as Patapaa, Pappy Kojo, Joey B, La meme gang, Amerado, B4bonah, teephlow, Kojo Cue,Lil shaker,R2bees and Kwesi Arthur[6]
