When it comes to the rap game, Ghanaian music producer and rapper Ball J has drawn a distinction between Medikal and Strongman. According to Ball J, and much to many people’s surprise, Medikal is a stronger rapper than former SarkCess Music signee Strongman. There is a widespread misconception that Medikal does not spit out sensible words while delivering his raps and instead employs fashionable language to pique the attention of listeners.
Ball J said on Neat FM that he does not see Medikal as a rapper, but rather as a poet who delivers his raps in a lighthearted manner.
“He’s a poet but people don’t realize it, and he does it in a jovial way, so you’ll think he’s doing ruff but if you hear his music, you’ll realize it’s education.”, he stated.
He clarified why he would do so by saying that Strongman is a fine rapper, but Medikal has much more commercial appeal.
And it is for this reason that he has chosen him over the former Sarkcess Music signee.
