Why is Lyrical Joe beefing Amerado?
Amerado on 11th May 2022 threw a jab at LJ after he was featured on Eno Barony’s finish line following LJ winning the VGMA rapper of the year award. LJ didn’t take it lightly as he also replied Amerado 24hours after the release of the song. After Two months of no reply from Amerado, he finally replied LJ on his birthday (5th August 2022).
The two rap geniuses have been going at each other since then with Lyrical Joe dropping Baboon, mute and Kwabena Numbers in response to Amerado’s kyibom, ponky Joe and Sin no more.
The two don’t seem to be smoking the peace pipe anytime soon as they both look set to go at each other again.
