Throwback Thursday: Freddie Funkstone “Ride Da Punani”
First of all, we want to apologize for not dropping a throwback song last week. We had some few things to take care of. But its on today people! The instrumental for this song kept playing in my head the whole day so; I decided to drop it like its HOT! lol… He is one of the finest HipHop artistes in Ghana back in the days, and he goes by the name Freddie Funkstone. This song became most people’s favourite since when it was released and of course, was my favourite too!
From what we know, the name Freddie Funkstone was actually taken from the popular cartoons “The Flintstones” and the Hiplife Grandpapa also got Rockstone from Funkstone… Lot of history with the names right? Lol… To me, Ghanaian music back in the days sounded more unique and it was something we could stand bold and say “We Own This”. Our rap style, choice of instrumentals and lyrics was 100% Ghanaian!
I don’t know if HipHop in Ghana has been modernized now or its taking a whole new trend recognized by the world… I guess this is something we can all debate about. Dont get me wrong though; HipHop in Ghana is growing and we have bunch of talented rappers holding on to it and making the best out of it. Now, this is HipHop few years back into time! Download mp3 below and watch the video too! Don’t forget to share…
