There is nothing that can get better than the competition that has emerged in hip hop industry in Rwanda. Quite a few names have emerged in this category, others have gone underground but the year 2013 was full of as many surprises. So without further ado, here are the five hip hop stars that caught the radio waves round the clock.

5. Fireman


One of the leading members of Tuff Gangs group, Fireman has quickly overtaken many rappers in the country, formerly overshadowed by his compatriot Jay Polly. However, in recent shows Fireman has demonstrated that he’s force to reckon with. He also got his first call up at Primus Guma Guma Super Star season 3, although he never made it past the first round.

4. Bulldog


Also a member of the Tuff Gangs crew, bulldog has overgrown his boots and can independently attract a relatively large crowd at any show, making him one of the most preferable hip hop artistes in the country. His unique style of rapping, and his self proclaimed alias of “chameleone” is not only humorous, but also a fans’ favorite name. Just like Fireman, Bulldog was among the first casualties to crash out of Primus Guma Guma Super Star.

3. Jay Polly

We would have loved to see Jay Polly top our list, but the year 2013 was definitely not his. Polly has not had a big impact in 2013, having sparingly released a few tracks. Also for the first time, he failed to be nominated in the country’s largest reality TV show Primus Guma Guma Super Star.

2. Ama G The Black

And here is the only person who did all the right things at the right place and at the right time. No surprise Ama G climbs up the ladder, having usurped the likes of Jay Polly who have amassed a great fan base around the country. Ama G possesses that extra charisma that no other hip hop singer has had in 2013. His ability to flow in all kinds of songs and of different rhythms is a unique quality that no any other rapper has had. He beat Jay Polly at Salax Awards in the category of Best Hip Hop, and my guess is the latter did not like it at all!

1. Riderman


Fresh from winning the annual Primus Guma Guma Super Star, Rideman is undoubtedly reveling in his victory, having given it a shot two times and failed to win it. It was also the first time the reality TV show coveted prize had gone to an artist who performs hip hop. Fans around the country also acknowledged that it was the first time it had been awarded to an artist who fully deserved it.
