Sark vs. M.anifest: How a Rap Battle Was Made

Braggadocio is the foundation of rap, particularly battle rap. No matter what their beliefs, the finest among them exude confidence and authority like that of a king; you can only see the Father through me, hence I am the best.

For the most humble among them, these unjustified assertions leak out like water from a broken pipe. Rap is similar to conquering and is a display of divinity or royalty.

Disbelieve what you’ve been told—rap feuds are motivated by ideologies. Idealistic versus non-idealistic, Ghanaian-made versus foreign-loving, good versus evil, hood versus not-so-hood, etc. The elite understands that there are always two extremes to draw from. Do not misunderstand me; to participate in the discussion for a real beef, the kind that easily boils over, means you are at a level that you’re a competitor, just.

In addition to the ability, there is an ingrained desire to lead your tribe, gain recognition and acceptance, and stand up for your values. Examine all of the well-known rap feuds once more and note any recurring themes. Although the songs (disses) are in opposition to the opponent’s life, these themes may not have been the catalyst for the beef. There is an ideological clash, therefore, when JAY-Z claims that Nas is only seeing life from his parents’ couch rather than enjoying it. He elaborates on this by stating, “Back in ’88, when I was pushing weight.” I saw Ya’ in your images; you were a dancer. Between those who have lived on the streets and those who have sold a hundred bricks vs the book smart rappers and the genre enthusiasts, who watch from far away, deepening the conversation on what a rapper should be or look like.

It’s not so much a fight against Drake as it is against the institutions and people that support individuals like Kendrick Lamar in their efforts to capitalize on black culture, as seen by the song’s position at the top of the Billboard Hot 100 after just five days of streaming. Once more, two ideals—real and false—come into play.

The fight between M.anifest and Sarkodie, two outstanding rappers in their own right, was one of the most important and contentious moments in Ghanaian rap history. However, before this feud, Sarkodie was the unchallenged rap mogul, handily defeating EL, the recent winner of the VGMAs‘ Crown Artist of the Year. Following the initial round of matches, M.anifest was legitimately acknowledged as the nation’s top rapper. Manifest’s human instincts came through as he craved his moment of glory. While most music fans perceived Sarkodie’s Bossy as a barb at E.L. for his remarks made on the VGMA stage, M.anifest saw an opportunity to seize it. Who could blame him, though? With his highly anticipated follow-up, “Nowhere Cool,” due out in a few months, and his critically praised first, “Apae: The Price of Free,” only three years old, he needed the opportunity. Uncharacteristically brave, this action altered the rap landscape and elevated M.anifest to the top of the conversation.

Once more, M.anifest recognized the elements of a rap feud as an “us versus them” scenario. You do something so humane that the opposition just falls for it without realizing it; you win not just by skill but also by inventing the notion that everyone who opposes you is against you. M.anifest considers himself to be an individual who defies convention and does not emulate the West. This is true not only of Sarkodie’s claimed fashion and style but also of her worldview. While still a small percentage, there are plenty of Ghanaians who consistently advocate for and strive toward this goal of Western neo-colonialism.

This is demonstrated by the food, clothing, and other choices made by this educated class, which aims to reject Western influence. These folks formed the clan of M.anifest. the individuals that gave King Sark a fist bump as M.anifest rapped about “copying the west looking a mess.” Rap is a Western export centred on flashing off, so Sarkodie hadn’t considered an angle; instead, he was just pissed off that someone with as terrible of fashion sense as he dared to declare himself the best rapper in the country. M.anifest’s crime was daring to stand out in a sea of wannabes. God MC was a calculated jab at the throne that proved effective. Fans had already selected their favourite, so arguments about greater substance, flow, etc. were only pretexts to back their choice.

More than Sarkodie, M.anifest profited from this display of verbosity. The least supported person prevails in rap battles between two people with varying levels of support. Your alleged favourite’s victory is merely a validation of your beliefs. When it’s us against them, we always come out on top. Us as in M.dot, us as in King Sark.
