The rap game in Ghana has seen tremendous improvement over the years, with new rap acts popping up and giving the best of delivery when it comes to their flows and rhymes. However, Rapper Bryne Martey, popularly known as Toy boi describes himself as a new breed among his colleague rappers.
In an interview with Hitz fm’s KMJ on DAYBREAK HITZ on Tuesday, the rapper said there hasn’t been a rapper like him before; a rapper with so much talent and delivery of different genres of music fused into a package of rap. He said he wasn’t bragging and knows it’s a fact. “Before I even talk about this, I’ll like to state the fact that there hasn’t been a rapper like me in Ghana. That’s not what am saying, that’s what the fact is. There hasn’t been a rapper that mixes contemporary with local stuff. It has never happened before”.
As monitored by ghlinks.com.gh, Toy boi explained that he wasn’t disrespecting any big rapper in Ghana, but as a young rapper he sees his delivery as unique and unpredictable, unlike some of his colleagues who rap and can be linked to certain big rap acts in the country because of similar traces. “Before a new act could blow, you can sit in your house and say this is the next Obrafour, or this is the next Sarkodie. But you can’t listen to me and say this is the next somebody. I am my own breed. There hasn’t been a rapper like me before. Never!”
Hitting on what inspires his style of music, the young rapper said the streets motivates and inspires his style of rap. He said he learns a lot from the streets and fuses it into his rap music. “The streets inspire what I do. In the streets I get to hear a lot and go through a lot on the streets”.
