Khali-Octo beef has lasted four seasons after four seasons, it never falls. Like wine it keeps getting better and the sippers are getting higher. It entertains. If Nas and Jay-Z feud was professional, this one makes a cut for me. Octo knows how hit Khali below the belt with his witty rhymes and word play, Khali knows how to respond with crazy flow and power in delivery.
That is something the game can be proud of, it has been part of the culture since the beginning at the park. Rap beef is enjoying some revival of late, from kibera and kayole feuding to top rappers from the mentioned places feuding. The beef goes back to when they were underground making mean cash over dissing to know when they are making thousands over dissing.
They keep flowing and twisting it on and off records. Khaligraph posted a whack poster of Octopizzo ‘vying’ in a Kibra seat. Now Octo is signing hot rappers from Kayole, Khaligraph’s turf. That’s a serious statement and game wise, it’s an offence and how will Khali defend?
He must respond, that hunger is rarely satisfied and now that the gloves are off we are shaping up to a more entertaining beef locally. It’s about that time lovers of the genre knew who is more active on mic and streets than on social media.
Khali is carrying enough to at least make an attempt to shift the momentum but will he do it with his fast rap. Shots or pots? Octo is crazy with punch lines and wordplay and keeps making cross border moves. Khaligraph is sometimes churning bubble gum hits, he will soon face opposition from his home ground. It’s flooded with talent ripe to erupt.
