Reminisce has always been referred to as an indigenous rapper because he raps with the Yoruba language. Other rappers who also rap in their indigenous language such as Olamide, Phyno, Seriki, Lil Kesh et al have also been branded as indigenous rappers and Reminisce seems to be not cool with this.
While speaking with HipHopWorld, in an exclusive interview he said:
“Stop calling us indigenous rappers there is nothing like that, a rapper is a rapper, calling myself, Phyno, Olamide, Seriki, BaseOne, Lil Kesh and couple of others coming up local rapper is a way of suppressing or make us feel inferior, because Serkodie is a rapper no one refers to him as indigenous rapper. If you cannot call him a local rapper then don’t call any of us local or indigenous rapper.
Over the years, we’ve been able to overturn the rap game, we’ve been able to change perception as regards if you cannot rap in English you cannot be a rap god or king and it’s been a collective effort. Things has really change people can now know who the real hiphop guys are unlike before when if you can rap in English you won’t get endorsement. And we feel very proud to be the rave of the moment”.
