What at all is punchline in Rap. Punchline is the last part of Rap that shows how witty and intelligent a rapper is. A good punchline will make audience scream for joy.A great punchline should sting audience. (sting is when a crowd goes OOOOOOH,,,or ohhh shitttt sonnn!!!, after hearing a punchline)
A lot of Notable rappers use it in their Rap. Talk about Jayz/Ice Tee’s famous line, I got 99 problem but a bitch ain’t one. That is one of biggest / crazy punch which made me fall in love with RAP.
A weak punchline will destroy a whole Rap verse. this could totally put off your audience very fast(like a rocket lunch (lol)), so A lot of Rappers who are not deep enough try very hard to avoid it and stick to the real issue.(Which is Good)
I remember when Sarkodie did his infamous IRISH CREAM Punchline on the biggest platform a rapper could get (the BET CYPHER). A lot of Rap Enthusiast found it weak. I personally found it weak because a good punchline does not need to debated on or explained. A good punchline is not difficult to understand.
BET Award winner, Sarkodie is receiving a lot of backslash on social media after he.released his new JAYSO produced Track Bossy. A line in the song says ”wo rappi no wo droppi punch pii a joe wo soundy immature”, which translates as Alot of punchline makes you sound immature. (really)
A lot of rap Enthusiast who are not very Biased on topics about sarkodie, Myself included, think Sarkodie’s line is half true.
A lot of weak punchlines in a Rap verse makes you sound immature. Sarkodie is one of the Biggest Rappers in Africa but I say” IRISHCREAM punchline is what I dont like”. ouch, Thats a Punch. lol. Shout-out to king Sark.
