Sarkodie Releases Jamz Album | LISTEN


Sarkodie, Ghanaian rapper and BET award winner, has finally released his long-awaited album.

The 10-track album, titled "Jamz," features both local and international artists.

Before announcing his album, he first released a song called "Labadi," which piqued the interest of many music fans and his fans.

Later, he added another release off the album titled "County side" which featured Empire signee Black Sherif.

His ten-song album features nine collaborations with major African musicians as well as one solo song.

Listen to and stream the entire album down below.

SARKODE had a dream — and a problem — in 2007. He aspired to be a great rapper, but his native tongue, Twi, was not widely understood, particularly outside of his hometown of Tema, Ghana.

He wasn't about to be discouraged. "I believed I could take Twi somewhere," he says. "That I was able to push it and go beyond Ghana's borders."

Sarkodie rose through the underground, and his battle skills and rap-fire delivery propelled him on an unstoppable upward trajectory while primarily rhyming in Twi. He amassed a devoted fan base across Africa, the United Kingdom, and the United States — a feat that many African rappers have attempted but failed to achieve — and even won Best International Flow at the 2019 BET Awards. 

Simultaneously, Sarkodie, born Michael Owusu, became an integral part of a Ghanaian hip-hop scene that boasts one of Africa's largest rosters of rappers, with artists like Kwesi Arthur, Black Sheriff, Yaw Tog, and Medikal creating cross-continental hits.

Sarkodie's abilities grew as time passed. His bars have become more clever and considered, full of acerbic wordplay and heartfelt true-life stories. Sarkodie's previous full-length release, 2021's No Pressure, showcased the rapper's elite lyricism while also bringing in generation- and continent-spanning features from Oxlade, Giggs, Kwesi Arthur, Vic Mensa, and others.

He's back with a new album, JAMZ, which combines African-inspired hip-hop, tropical Afropop, and vibrant amapiano.
