Review: Keeny Ice – Barcode (Prod. by Marg Beatz)
Review of Keeny Ice's 'Barcode' produced by Marg Beatz. Review based on the theme or concept of the song, production and artiste's ratings on this.
Keeny Ice released ‘Barcode’ a few days ago and surprisingly it’s the main topic among my friends on social media. I decided to take a listen today and put out my personal review, and that is what you are about to experience. According to social media posts, the song purposely calls out rappers from the Volta Region and dare them to reply.
Before I start, I would like to remind you that, Keeny Ice isn’t an average rapper and he’s very good at what he does. I became a fan when he released one of his best songs titled “Gankivi“. My review will basically compare his performance on both songs.
If the song “Barcode” is a diss song to all Volta Rappers as speculated, then I guess he either went too soft on the song or he’s using it as a bait. As a music blogger, I can confidently say that Keeny Ice did not plan this or nothing really triggered the making of the song. The passion wasn’t there… All I heard is words getting arranged on a beat. I think someone asked him to do it and he thought it’s good for the hype. (Yeah Abrakadabra challe)
Keeny Ice did not focus on style so I heard very little of that… His “Gankivi” mood was totally lost and he sounds more like he has no competition at all. It’s not the worse rap song I’ve ever heard but definitely not the best Keeny can give us. I’m sorry but I beg to differ. As I said earlier, this might be a bait so we don’t have to judge so quickly. There are a couple of replies to this song crawling in and I’ll put them on their feet soon. I will rate this song 7/10. Share your ratings with us.
