Scar Mkadinali’s verse on “Utaniget” is an unfiltered exposure of Masterpiece King’s stinking discography. It’s a toxic mix, dragging in respected Kenyan rappers who, perhaps enticed by huge fees, shamelessly collaborate with this untalented artist.

Imagine Masterpiece King featuring heavyweights like Khaligraph, Boutrous, MRRIGHT, Scar Mkadinali, and Dyana Cods, still crumbling in inadequacy.

Masterpiece King’s link-ups with Exray Taniua, UncoJingJong, Odi Wa Muranga, and Mr Seed might go unnoticed, as they don’t quite register as hip-hop artists. And frankly, we don’t pay them much mind. However, allowing him to infiltrate the sacred hip-hop culture, a genre we hold dear, would undeniably constitute a monumental disgrace. Crossing this line is simply not an option we can entertain.

Yet, Scar Mkadinali’s verse on “Utaniget” hints at an understanding of the underlying motivation for these collaborations. In the track, he spits, “tunatafta doo wanatafta hits,” leaving little room for interpretation. It’s hard to shake the feeling that Scar Mkadinali is acutely aware of Masterpiece King’s agenda with this track. 

Masterpiece King lays bare his audacity as he shamelessly assigns Scar Mkadinali half his song. The move reveals the surveillance and obsession that such untalented artists harbor for the Drill rap themes. Despite a lackluster verse from Masterpiece King, another riddle from Scar emerges in the hook’s line.“ka ni January na uko na doo utaniget.” It becomes apparent that this collaboration was undoubtedly a transaction Masterpiece King had to pay for.

“Freaky” Masterpiece King Featuring MRRIGHT

Masterpiece King seems to cling to a repetitive formula in virtually all his tracks. Enlist a prominent artist and let them take the lead role.

Take, for instance, Freaky,” featuring MRRIGHT, boasting nearly 150K views on YouTube. Curiously, it appears as if Masterpiece King is the one in the supporting role. He generously hands over the hook and a substantial chunk of verses to MRRIGHT.

It leaves him with only sporadic moments of uninspiring contributions and does some weak stuff here and there. Masterpiece King went from a Wizkid wannabe gospel singer to the worst of all rappers. Ironically, Masterpiece King raps, “Masterpiece aka fast spender…” The glaring truth is he’s buying his way into the spotlight by securing these collaborations.

“Cover D Face” Featuring Dyana Cods and Odi Wa Muranga

Merely a month ago, Masterpiece King enlisted Dyana Cods on the track, Cover D Face.”

Despite Dyana Cods undeniably slaying her verse, the overall song succumbs to mediocrity. I’ll spare you the details on Odi Wa Muranga. It’s a surprise that his once-deep voice has taken a rather unexpected turn. Such swift transformations by these artists leave listeners caught off guard with unexpected changes.

If Scar Mkadinali’s verse on “Utaniget” means anything, the infiltration of the likes of Masterpiece King must be stopped.

We all are too familiar with the predictable outcome if artists such artists are allowed to drain the life out of Kenyan hip-hop. He’ll vanish into another venture, leaving behind a trail of forgettable collaborations. The only ones left marked by the stain of these mediocrities will be the respected rapers. However, let’s not pretend that these rappers shouldn’t pursue lucrative opportunities. It’s about striking a balance and maintaining moral integrity. It’s reassuring to see that they haven’t yielded to promoting such dull songs.

As Mwalimu Rachel makes bold advances towards Wakadinali, particularly in the aftermath of her involvement with that Gengetone group, a clear picture emerges.

The Kenyan hip-hop scene has proven to be an easy target for opportunistic content creators and industry gatekeepers armed with lucrative corporate checkbooks.

It’s a plea that Wakadinali remains resilient, guarding against the temptation, as authentic Kenyan hip-hop springs from low-income and overlooked outskirts of the city – a fertile ground where aspiring rappers seek to make their mark before the next rising star takes the spotlight.

Scar Mkadinali’s verse on “Utaniget” Says It All…

So, the collaboration between Masterpiece King with Exray Taniua and Odi Wa Muranga makes sense. They share a level playing field. However, it’s puzzling when heavyweights like Scar Mkadinali and Khaligraph opt to legitimize what I can only describe as an imposter. Scar has already achieved success with tracks dominating the airwaves. He’s got verses on Khaligraph and Bien’s albums. He stands as the beacon of innovation for older rappers looking to modernize their sound. 

Without Nyashinki’s hiatus hype, Scar is arguably the reigning rap champion in Kenya. Engaging in these collaborations for money gains might tarnish the authenticity of the culture. Introducing foreign elements could potentially signal the demise of the vibrant hip-hop scene we hold dear.
