MIXTAPE: Kobby Dope (@KobbyDope) Releases Rib Cage Music
“Rib Cage Music is something I have been working for some time now. The tape was actually supposed to be released last year on February 19, which happens to be my birthday but due to certain circumstances was pushed back indefinitely. I know Sergio from high school but I and he really linked up somewhere in August and we started serious work. Sergio suggested I finish up the mix tape. We started by re doing some of the original songs like My Name Is Dopey which was initially recorded on swizz beats’ Its Me B**ches. Sergio put some scratches on Don Jazzy’s Enigma and I dropped my lines on it. We also redid Ired. I made my brother Don Sedem do a patwoi verse and a hook, my Nigerian friend and the renowned rapper Viva retouched his verse and Drilix also put a 16 on. We also redid Friends with Benefits with Keizy. I had already recorded My Music with Trebla, Skills and Hot Jam sometime in March. I wanted to recreate something with a similar feel so I did two more songs, Rib Cage Music 1 and 2… I needed someone who could do something dope, deep and real so I hit up my man Kojo Cue and got my girl Phillipa to do a hook, for RCM 1. The verse on RCM 2 is actually a very old one I wrote for a poetry event.
Talking about poetry, I decided to flaunt my poetry skills on Adele’s beat. “Life is a b**ch” is a piece I try to use to tell the world that even though we hate our lives and the things that happen to us sometimes, it’s still all we got hence the ending, “life is a b**ch but I guess I keep forgetting that b**ch is life”
Everyone who knows me knows I wear African textiles a lot. I hit up my brother Lex Wealth who is also in the fashion and we did a joint. That’s how SOAP came about. Sergio of course did the beat. The last song “Spartans” is a song I did for Independence Hall in KNUST when they were about to do their dinner and awards night. We did not really use it so I decided to throw it in there as a bonus cos I did that song for the love of Indece (even though I was still paid lol).
I hope everyone will enjoy the tape, or at least a part of it. Every song on the tape has a different audience been targeted. Feel free to let me know what you think about the project by hitting me on my twitter @KobbyDope and using the tag #RibCageMusic #RCM”
