It's clear in Chika's storytelling and effortless delivery that the Alabama native is influenced by rap legends of the golden era like Biggie and of today's generation with J. Cole.
What truly sets her a part is that she spits about real life issues that are affecting not just her, but many others. The difference between the two is that while they may be hesitant to express their thoughts on topics that demand open vulnerability on such a platform, she isn't and is their voice.
The independent rapper is known on social media for putting her spin on her favorite beats. She responded to Cole's "1985", a diss, well rather homicide, to all the talentless new rappers.
In just one minute and 12 seconds, she further pushes the narrative as someone of the youth who is giving the finger to clout chasing in the industry and is ready for the resurgence of real hip-hop with real bars and dedication to the art.
The video that has skyrocketed her following is her open letter to Kanye after his recent antics on Twitter.
You know you're bold when you diss Kanye on his own record, but she perfectly pinpointed on the disappointment and anger that has exploded in the Black community who are majority of his fan base.
Her talent has reached celebrities such as fellow Nigerian artists Wale and Cynthia Erivo, rapper Ice T and Funk Flex, who recently brought her to his show. She freestyled over Miguel's "Come Through and Chill" instrumental.
There are too many fire punchlines to keep up with, but a few of my favorites are: "Bullets overrated come with verses if you act up" and "Coming for the slaughter 'cause I am my daddy's daughter/ But my flow so hard they looking for my testicles". And, I love the subtle flex of her pipes in the very beginning.
Chika has a mixtape on the way, but in the meantime check out her SoundCloud below!
