After almost three years of absence, the rapper MHD is back in the rap game. To boost the audience on his official YouTube channel, the self-proclaimed inventor of the « Afro Trap », unveiled on 27 May the video clip of his new single entitled « King Kong ». It is the 11th part of his series of musical works called « Afro-Trap » but also a tribute to his late friend Dj Arafat.
During his lifetime, the late Arafat had a very friendly relationship with the young Mohamed Sylla (MHD). The French rapper and actor, who was unable to attend the funeral because he was in prison at the time, was particularly touched by the death of the Yoro Gang leader and wanted to pay a final tribute to him by using the name « Kong » in his new musical masterpiece.
According to some sources, this rap text was written by MHD from the bottom of his cell, with the intention of paying a heartfelt tribute to his best friend who died too soon. A gesture of the author of « La Puissance » that was very appreciated by the ex-wife of Arafat Dj, Carmen Sama, who did not fail to thank him on his official Facebook page. Many Internet users, including several « Chinese », also showed their gratitude to the rapper who was provisionally released in July 2020.
Prior to that, MHD’s musical career had been brought to an abrupt halt after he was indicted for »manslaughter » in January 2019. Indeed, the rapper is allegedly involved in a case of settling of accounts between rival gangs in the 10th and 19th arrondissements of Paris, which went wrong and ended in murder.
But even though before the release of his second album, in 2018, MHD had announced, via social networks, his desire to stop making music, the public is delighted to see that this is not the case. And as the artist himself states at the beginning of this new hit, « I never left, you crazy bastard, it’s the return of the little prince … Machiavellian as 2pac, I’m still in the bins, I’m not done with Afro-Trap. This is news that will certainly delight the rapper’s unconditional fans, who have just marked his return to the music scene.
It should be remembered that MHD has been provisionally released and will be tried for voluntary manslaughter next July. While waiting for his fate to be determined, the editors suggest you taste this tasty Afro-Trap cocktail of the artist.
