[Song Review Essay] Who Is The Badman Killa?

RATED 9.5/10

PG 18

This is not just a question but a title to Don Santo's new single featuring himself as the Badman Killa. For the first time in history, an artist steps out of his comfort zone and projects a never-seen-before personality and attitude with lyrical prowess that can be compared to the legendary Eminem and Tupac Shakur with the mind of a god.


I know you are all anticipating for this chart-busting single by the Don of dons featuring himself as the Badman Killa. After facing attempted identity theft by various artists around the world including, Nigeria's Runtown, who last year released a song titled International Badman Killa.

In his response, Don Santo tweeted Runtown saying;

"thank you for making me famous..."


This was unexpected as we know the Don of dons has power and influence but why resort to thanking a criminal or someone who did you wrong? Little did we know that he was to come with not just a song but an album? Like who the f#ck does that, this must have caught the fakers by surprise.

In this song we get to listen to lines, rhymes, vybes and punchlines that have gone to university, graduated, lectured and now practicing as a consultant.


The song was written by Blame It On DOn and produced by Klassik Nation recording studios.


Song description

"Ignore rumours about whose throne this is. Can't the Badman Killa go out to pee in peace? Come on ye desperados. I am very comfortable with conflict, be it of the legal or mortal kind. My father is a mediator, a bridge maker. I am a grave maker." - DON SANTO.


As much you can get the seriousness of the message from the song description, that is not even a fraction of what you should expect from the lyrics.


The song begins with the lead instrumental as Santo says,

"Yeah yeah! You know what? I have been cool all year long, but some people have been talking about me. They've been writing about me. And I don't give a shit 'coz you know what? Am the Badman Killa!"


Other than referring to himself as crazy and genius he underlines the fact that nobody can stop him. His Eminent Majesty confesses that Lyrically, physically and spiritually Klassik.


"Coz this is tried and tested. Verified and public

I never shy on my memories and I

Germinate when they bury me;

Yes am god kasikutaka I couldn’t fit on you;

You don’t write like you wrote it, and you are right that you’re noisy, that’s something!"

VERSE 1:

Mbiu ya mgambo ikilia kuna jambo;

Ukiona zimeweza jua basi ni za Santo;

Na juu nishakupata, nami hujanipata;

Najua moyo wako unadunda kama yeah!

Crazy, genius nobody can stop me;

His Eminent Majesty;

Lyrically physically spiritually Klassik;

Baby relax usicum bado hat trick;

Zem call me daddy if you like it yeah fantastic;

Coz this is tried and tested. Verified and public

I never shy on my memories and I

Germinate when they burry me;

Yes am god kasikutaka I couldn’t fit on you;

You don’t write like you wrote it, and you are right that you’re noisy, that’s something!

King or GOAT is simple;

You think am hot is feeble;

Sorry I broke your ego hehe


CHORUS:

Am the B to the A, D to the MA , N to the KILLA

Gonna give you what you want! Aah, eeh

Santo in the hood, Klassik in the head, the Don of dons ola!

Gonna give you what you need! Aah, eeh


VERSE 2

Turn down for what?

I ain't loud enough

Cest la vie sipendi fakers so ni RIP;

And in the boardrooms na bedrooms ni VIP;

Wait, I’ve got a billion years because the Klassik is GOAT

Am no conspiracy theorist but something here is a foot

Oh yes my dick

12 inches of wood

Oh Mr. Right Beat, thank you for this beat

Oh Pheezle Weazle take a blunt and be so wasted

Technically wale wakali Afrika majuu wanifind sick;

A lot of ninjas are killing the beat when they bring it to me is bullshit

Wale wakali tunajua ni wa mystic;

Dropping bars and breaking records keeping it robustic;

And, ukiona wao jua wanatoka Klassik;

Sogeza kiti sip a smile kama ume-get this;

Gang ishakubali;

Game ishatunoki;

Mahater wametubu sasa wananiita baba; HAHAHAHA


CHORUS:

||: Am the B to the A, D to the MA , N to the KILLA

Gonna give you what you want!

Santo in the hood, Klassik in the head, the Don of dons ola!

Gonna give you what you need! :||
