Stone understands rap, but then again, he comes from a family which understands rap:
‘Them dey wonder how/ we no go allow/ three of the best rappers, one mother. How?’, he raps in the first verse of his song “Number 1”, which features M.anifest and Dampo. Okyeame Kwame is hiplife royalty, and Kunta is only now returning after his prolonged wrestle with a stroke a few years back, but his promise cannot be ignored.
He started off in the duo Bradez, the other half being Kunta. Back then, he simply went by the name Stone. Their most successful songs are ‘One Gallon’, produced by Appietus and ‘Simple’, produced by Richie Mensah. But he seems to have completely redefined himself. So today, he responds to FlowKing Stone, obviously to make a statement. I concur, but as is characteristic with learning new names, I still keep going back to calling him just Stone.
Stone’s song is a deeply personal anthem about what our belief should be by default –that God has made us all number one. Stone himself lives this belief, for he has always maintained that he’s number one in lyricism, in spite of his brothers, in spite of Sarkodie, with whom he has constantly been compared:
‘On the mic I be beast/ your best be ma least’
Stone is obedient to rhythm in a way that is exemplary, he’s not complacent…his siblings too. He will rap, then ‘rap-sing’, then rap again. But to the same beat, he can be abusive too. Maybe four bars to the end of the first verse, he does something amazing and worrisome; with his mouth, with words, he becomes a drummer and explores pun, metaphor, symbolism and rhyme excellently. The way he achieves this might make you lose your breath, much like the dizzying hihat pattern in the song, or the guitar offering toward the end. It’s ridiculous in the way it is impressive, and then he concludes a caution detractors momentarily thus:
7 shocking Bible verses you will never believe are actually in the Bible
For most Christians, the Bible or the Holy Bible as many call it is their yardstick. The book is revered, believed in some cases to possess magical powers and is also regarded as the law.
Many will however be shocked by some verses of scripture in the Bible that they have not come across before. Here they are:
- Deuteronomy 25:11
This Bible verse is weird, funny and kind of scary. Deuteronomy 25:11 says:
“When two men are fighting and the wife of one of them intervenes to drag her husband clear of his opponent, if she puts out her hand and catches hold of the man by his privates, you must cut off her hand and show her no mercy.”
2. Psalms 137:9
This Bible verse is confusing and scary at the same time. It says: “Happy is the one who seizes your infants and dashes them against the rocks.”
3. 2 Kings 2: 23 – 24
Elijah was obviously in a bad mood here, no other way to explain it. 2 Kings 2: 23 – 24 says: “And he went up from thence unto Bethel: and as he was going up by the way, there came forth little children out of the city, and mocked him, and said unto him, Go up, thou bald head; go up, thou bald head.
“And he turned back, and looked on them, and cursed them in the name of the Lord. And there came forth two she bears out of the wood, and tare forty and two children of them.”
- Leviticus 18:22
Homosexuality is spelled out as a sin clearly in this Bible verse: Leviticus 18:22 “You shall not lie with a male as with a woman; it is an abomination.”
5. There was a nudist here, why he was running around remains unclear. Mark 14: 51,52 has this to say: “And a young man followed [Jesus], with nothing but a linen cloth about his body. And they seized him, but he left the linen cloth and ran away naked.” Many believe the naked man was Mark.
6. 1 Peter 2:18
On the matter of slavery, the Bible had these to say, at 1 Peter 2: 18: “Slaves, in reverent fear of God submit yourselves to your masters, not only to those who are good and considerate, but also to those who are harsh.”
- Jeremiah 19:9
Cannibalism? This Bible verse proclaims some scary things. Jeremiah 19:9 says: “I will make them eat the flesh of their sons and daughters, and they will eat one another’s flesh because their enemies will press the siege so hard against them to destroy them
