Tinny “Ringtone” (Remix) Feat Asem, Richie & Okyeame Kwame
If you have never listened to this song, then you have really missed out a lot in Ghana music! This is the remix of “Ringtone” by Tinny featuring Asem, Richie and Okyeame Kwame a.k.a. the rap doctor! This song was released at the time the Ghanaian music scene was experiencing a new genre called “Krank” or “Cranck” or “Crunck” or however its spelled… LOL Richie was the first to bring this kind of music flavor in the country with Asem’s hit single “Give Me Blow“… This caught the heart of many Ghanaians and led to more songs being done that way.
For the first time, Hammer of the Last 2 changed his way of playing to this new style but added even more powerful kicks to it making it “Hammerish” if you know what I mean… Hammer did his first “Krank” with Edem on the song “You Dey Craze” which featured Kwaw Kese; and in Kwaw’s rap, he said “You guys brought it, but we made it a hit” (Translated from Twi) which ofcourse we know he was referring to Richie and his people… So on this song, Asem also said “Yeah We Brought it and we made it a hit… You guys took it and made it sh*t” (Also Translated) LOL Those were the little music wars we had those times and Ghana music was too much FUN!!
One thing I remember about this song, is when we made a joke about Tinny saying the song was too dope and he wanted to make everybody know the song was really for him, so at the beginning of his rap, he said “Me La la ni, Me La la ni” which means “This is my song, This is my song” LOL… From Asem, Richie, Okyeame Kwame and Tinny, this was a big collaboration and the impact this song made was unbelievable! Ya’ll know I love the classic hits so this is one for you!! Download mp3 below and keep it!
