HipHop Lifestyle: Ghanaian Rapper Medikal And His Love For Cars

This week on HipHop Liestyle, we take a look at the luxurious life of Ghanaian rapper, Medikal and his love for cars.

In 2003, Nate Dogg posed a question that keeps rappers up at night: “Could you love me on a bus?” he crooned on the chorus of 50 Cent’s hit “21 Questions.” Fiddy raises an equally important conundrum on the same track: “If I went back to a hoopty from a Benz / Would you poof and disappear, like some of my friends?” If ever there was a song to remind the listener that you’re not a baller unless you own expensive cars, this is it.

Cars and hip-hop go together like gin and juice: they are an essential ingredient in that complex lyrical hierarchy that tells your peers that you have climbed that ladder of success a few rungs higher.

Medikal had his high school education at Odorgonno Senior High. He is the son of James Frimpong and Portia Lamptey.
