Lyrical Joe has explained the genesis of his beef with Amerado.
A few weeks ago, Ghanaian music fans were served with a hot lyrical battle from these rappers.
Speaking in an interview on TV3, Joe disclosed that the first song he released after Amerado won the Rapper of the Year at the 3Music Awards was not targeted at him.
While Amerado was not his target, he wondered why he responded.
He explained that the song was not a diss song, rather, he was looking for answers from the organizers.
“Let me tell you how it went on my side. We were both nominated last year for EP of the Year and Rapper of the Year on 3Music. So he won EP of the Year and Rapper of the Year. So the EP of the Year, I didn’t have any problem with it. But the Rapper of the Year, that’s where I had a problem. I had a problem, not with him. I had a problem with the award scheme, and so I did a song,” he said.
Lyrical Joe further stated: “That song wasn’t a diss song. It was questioning because I was like, you guys said your theme is Beyond the Music. Are you looking at views because the song had views? You said beat dexterity. It had one rap song that had like four different beats in it. So the qualities and everything that they stated they were looking for as an award scheme the song had it.
“On top of it, it had views. Yeah, voting went on as well. And we had other people in that category that if it depended on Ghanaians voting, neither I nor he will take that award. Let’s be honest.
“I did a short freestyle. About 1 min 20 secs. And I questioned 3Music, not him. Even in that freestyle, I told him, bro, you know I love you, but this field is mine.”
