Call it the #GameOfFlows or the #ClashOfTitans, but whichever way, there’s gonna be a hero and a villain. If it were the game of thrones, Manifest will surely be from the house of Lannister, and Sarkodie, Stark.
A week ago, Sarkodie released his much talked about single, #Bossy, that caused a total revamp on social media. He released the song together with its visuals, and it was fire. Bloggers had stories. Rap heads had topics to discuss.
Who Sarkodie was throwing jabs at and so on and so forth. Some said he meant the track for E.L. others said Flowking Stone. But whether it was meant for any of these two rappers or not, Sarkodie has been replied. At least, now we know who got offended.
Bossy is a well-produced song with dope flows. I love it. Ask me and I’ll rate it 8.5/10.
Just when the Sarkoholics were enjoying their moment, Manifest comes in to ruin the party. He decides to end the month of June on a rather controversially disturbing note. Ahead of his album release – #NoWhereCool, he drops #godMC – full of potent bars A single, that might not even make it to the album. Since it releases up until the time of writing this, #godMC has been in the top 3 most trending topics on GH twitter.
Well, people see the song as a beefing reply to Sarkodie’s #Bossy. But I see a conversation between two formidable rappers. Two rappers who are both equally good and unique in their own way.
I’ve compiled excerpts of the ‘conversation’. I hope you love it.
1. Sarkodie: It’s all about the emotions bro f*&k the bars. Manifest: These no be bars. I’m just passing time.
2. Sarkodie: I’m a king, but I don’t feel like I gotta wear a crown Manifest: What’s a king to a god MC?

14. Sarkodie: Manifest, mesr3 wo lemme just, use your dododotido to end this verse Manifest: My guy obidi, let me return the favor. You know what time it is, later is greater And that’s how it ended. Interesting convo, innit? Those of you that love to update your vocabularies, here’s a word for you (Califragilisticexpiali). Use it if you find the meaning. Thanks to Manifest.
