Back in 2016, AKA, the acclaimed South African rapper, unleashed a fierce diss track that continues to resonate with fans and critics alike. Titled “Composure”, the track took aim at fellow Hip Hop artists Cassper Nyovest and Anatii, and established AKA as one of the most potent forces in the African music industry.
With its ominous beat and hard-hitting lyrics, “Composure” quickly became a viral sensation, sparking a heated debate among fans and inspiring countless reactions and responses from the Hip Hop community. AKA's blistering flow and razor-sharp rhymes left no doubt that he was a force to be reckoned with, and cemented his reputation as one of the most talented and innovative artists of his generation.
But “Composure” was more than just a diss track. It was a statement of intent, a bold declaration of AKA's vision for the future of African Hip Hop. With its intricate wordplay and fierce energy, the track showed that AKA was not content to rest on his laurels, but was determined to push the boundaries of the genre and continue to innovate and evolve.
Five years later, “Composure” remains a classic of the African music scene, a testament to AKA's talent and vision, and a landmark in the history of African Hip Hop. And as AKA continues to blaze new trails and inspire new generations of artists, the legacy of “Composure” will continue to live on.
