The Grandpapa of Hiplife, Reggie Rockstone has taken a swipe at the current crop of Ghanaian musicians who are not duly creative.
Speaking on Hitz FMâ€™s â€œCruise Controlâ€ show with host Mercury Quaye, the â€œSelfieâ€ hitmaker said that he cannot fathom why one would label himself a creative act person when he canâ€™t paint images with lyrics when doing songs.

He maintained that, most of the hip-hop artistes donâ€™t do enough research and also donâ€™t learn from veteran artistes who paved the way in the music industry â€“ â€œthat is why their songs donâ€™t inspire himâ€.
â€œIf you canâ€™t tell a story you canâ€™t rap. These kids ainâ€™t rapping no more. We were rocking these metaphors and similesâ€¦â€ Reggie said after Mercury played a rap song he sampled from music legend, Fela Kuti.

He continued that â€œI donâ€™t listen too much of the current hip hopâ€¦ a lot of the new music doesnâ€™t inspire and does nothing to me. I donâ€™t like the mumble rap. I like to feed my soul with good music so I donâ€™t listen to junk musicâ€¦â€ Reggie said.
