Magikal Entertainment rising hiphop star, BRAIN had come out to debunk the rumour making round that he ‘dissed’ rap diva, Weird MC in his new song, “Salute”.
The rhymester further stated that he had great respect for Weird MC and look up to her because she is one of the top Femcee that put Africa on the hiphop map.
Speaking on the rumour, “the song “Salute” is a song I wrote to give props to top African hiphop stars that made great efforts in making hiphop music an acceptable genre in Africa, so there’s no reason for me to have ‘dissed’ Weird MC in the song. Though there are few jabs and witty punchlines in the song, I celebrated the rap stars and didn’t run anyone down in the song”.
