Top 5 Liberian Hipco Artists

Hipco music originated in the 1980s, even though most believe it was created in the 90's. The style of music, which is a combination of hip hop and Liberian kolloque on an afropop beat, existed in the 80s, but was given its name in the 90s and became mainstream in the 2000s. Below is a list of the top 5 artists who have risen to the top of the Hipco genre over the years.


Takun J


Takun J made his mainstream debut in the early 2000s when he was featured on the hit song "Pot Boiling." Since then, he had made series of hit songs, including "They Lie".  Takun J has received over 13 awards and known for his humanitarian services as an anti-corruption activist and anti-rape activist.


Bucky Raw


Bucky Raw has been in the rap game for a while, but he made his household name when he was featured in the Liberian 2016 Cypher. He is known for his hit song "pump tire" and "womi". The artist went on to become the first Liberian artist to make the #1 spot on ITunes, Amazon and the Billboard World Music Chart.  He has also won over 5 awards.


Christoph the Change is the King of Hipco diss. He has been in battle with Bucky Raw, Coz and more. He is known for his hit song "Gbanna Man". He has won multiple awards.



JB Soulfresh from the duo Soul Fresh is a lyricist. Unlike the names mention on this list, he is not an award winning artist as of yet, but has won awards as part of the duo. The artist is known for his flow and lyrics. He is taking a bold step currently, to step out of the shadow of the group and drop some songs as a solo artist.



Luckay Bucky online presence is dead, but we can't dispute the fact that he is loved by the streets. Like Takun J, his name became a household name when he was featured on the hit song "Pot Boiling". 
 





It will be really awesome to get these five on a track.
