Hip-hop typically strives best when it’s aggressive. However, the indigenous direction of Sarkodie’s confrontational raps adds a sincere quality that makes it almost charming. On “All Die Be Die”, the Ghanaian rapper’s first single of the year, he raps over a traditional influenced beat Ware produces, mixing rattling samples, percussion, traditional drum riffs and guitar licks. The traditional drums are made even more echt by the chanting hook and Sarkodie’s rap bars, performed in his Twi dialect. “All Die Be Die” features a verse from his Ghanaian counterpart, Akan, who also sticks to his native tongue on the last verse.
