Rapper Khaligraph Jones has postponed his album several times as he strives to come up with a masterpiece. You better circle your calendars on June 12 because he’s going to change the hip hop game in Kenya — if he doesn’t push the date forward again that is.
He recently did an interview with Manuel Ntoyai of MediaMax where he spoke about his debut project “Testimony 1990” that was to be released five months ago but has been shelved several times.
“The album was supposed to drop in January this year, but I felt it wasn’t the right time. While I have more than seven mixtapes under my belt, this will be my first album,” said Jones who recently shared stage with American superstar Rick Ross.
“Testimony 1990 will be different from any other album because it will have 17 new tracks — none that my team are familiar with. I have worked with different people and I know my fans and music lovers, in general, will love it.”
Did Octopizzo, who released his fourth album titled “Next Year” recently affect the release date? Is he afraid of critics? Will the date be moved again?
“Talk is cheap and critics are nothing but critics,” said Khaligraph when such questions were dropped. “My album drops June 12 and I will be setting new trends once I release it.”
The tracklist of the album is hard to guess. Fans will have to wait for June 12 — his birthday– to really see what the 27-year-old has to offer.
