Sarkodie Jumps On A Busta Rhymes Classic In 'Free Press' + Addresses The Government In 'Inflation'

Ghana's Sarkodie's goes in over a Busta Rhymes classic in "Free Press," plus the government-addressing "Inflation."


Sarkodie comes through with "Free Press," a free-flowing loosie which sees the Ghanaian star rapper going in over Busta Rhymes' 1997 classic "Put Your Hands Where My Eyes Could See." Sarkodie gets personal and calls out the Ghanaian press in the track for lack of support and proper coverage of his overseas appearances, claiming its just him and R2Bees striving to put Ghana on the map. He seems to have taken particular issue with a Ghanaian gossip article which claims him, Tiwa Savage, Mafikizolo, and others "performed for the cleaners" at the BET Awards. "Just talk about it, stop talking like fans. Do your job," the rapper calls out. For more from Sarkodie check out his church video for "Adonai (Remix)" with Castro, his Drake-sampling "Decisions," and the "Shots On Shots" collaboration with Ice Prince. Stream and download "Free Press" below.

Update 8/18: Stream and download Sarkodie's latest single drop "Inflation" below. The track, produced by Julz, sees the rapper addressing the Ghanaian government and the country's economic situation.
