4 Aspects Of Vector’s Diss Record “Judas The Rat”, That Can Not Be Overlooked

Avatar | - Leave A Comment

The Nigerian music scene has some weeks now, been entertained with diss records flying left, right and center. From Blaqbonez to Davolee, to Dremo… and the list goes on. Things took another turn when rap kings M.I Abaga and Vector Da Viper took a step into the diss ring, bringing forth with their savage brilliance in the records released.

Now it should be understood that both rappers have over the years proved their worth when it came to the rap game. I mean we have all been served with cringe-worthy ‘tracks’ in the name of rap music by artistes who enjoy maligning and debasing the rap game with their violent, crude and largely idiotic and pointless lyrics for these tracks, so I dare say M.I and Vector are two rappers who we must be grateful for. These men have over the years transformed rap into an academically and artistically viable poetry. In my opinion, these men will top the list of cerebral rappers in the country, if such list is ever made.

Judas The Rat” is Vector’s reply to M.I’s Viper, which saw the Choc City boss going for the jugular on Vec, armed with his formidable wordsmith skill to school Vec. But first, a brief history:

M.I Dissed Vector in the ‘Martell Cypher 2

Vec hit back with “The Purge

M.I responded with “The Viper” and now, we have “Judas The Rat“, The Preacher’s Son.

As expected Vector responded. Armed with his power of abstract lyricism, his extreme witty and clever use of words. A diss track was born in the record of ‘Judas The Rat’. Undoubtedly, this record is fire. However, Vector’s creativity amongst other things was questioned and must be discussed.

Artwork

The artwork saw a rat in the character of Mr. Big in Zootopia inside the mouth of a cobra, the reptile Vec decided to use in representing himself, huge mistake here.

For someone many have continuously argued to be intelligent, myself included, I was beyond surprised to see that he agreed to the use of a cobra to represent himself.

Cobras kill in two ways spitting and biting but somehow are known more for spitting. They aim at the eye of their threat and spit into it, disabling it in seconds.

However further research has shown that ‘Cobras, however, use venom to kill.’ Also, they are not particularly muscular, and if they need to kill their prey, it is a must that they bite and hold on to that prey. With this being said, it is very possible for even a rat to kill a cobra should that cobra not aim properly and disable the rat in a second, the rat can, in fact, turn around and bite the cobra to death.

Cobras are also known to be vulnerable reptiles and according to Natgeowild; ‘cobras have developed an elaborate system of bluffing to intimidate anything they see as a threat.’

Misrepresenting himself with the photo of a cobra instead of that of a python is one way Vec had many questioning his intellect alongside the attributes of such a reptile.

Beat

Vec went on social media asking producers to send in beats for his response to M.I.

Lol… so I want to make this more interesting… I want producers who want to produce my response to play beat snippets underneath this tweet and in 24hrs we pick.

Use the #ThepastorsSon

(distractions2).

This, to be honest, brought some sort of joy to my mind as I thought, oh yeah, new cats will be discovered. The record was produced by Masterkraft who did a fine job having us question how he made hits for artists over the years, a story for another day really.

Now, for a diss track to be made with such a below par beat, one must in fact again question Vec’s creativity as for the life of me, I can not understand why you will want to make a mellow beat in response to such catastrophic diss record made for you. I mean it is a diss track, it should get everyone screaming their lungs out and bumping their heads, not swaying it side to side like one in a Joeboy/Fireboy DML/Johnny Drille concert.

Storyline

Vector over the years has effortlessly painted beautifully detailed pictures with his words that I dare say is akin to daydreaming and has caught many uninitiated off guards. I mean he is Vector, the rapper who over the years is known to possess a deeply multi-layered lyrical skill but really, Judas The Rat Is One Record that has me questioning everything. To be honest, I expected more when he mentioned ‘The Preacher’s Son.’ I, for one, was expecting major revelations but alas we only got the genesis of different stories that didn’t add up.

DM meetings

Yes, I know this has nothing to do with the record itself but again it is very important and related. Hours after social media had a meltdown analyzing and over-analyzing, ‘Judas The Rat, The Preacher’s Son,’ Vec, again took to his Twitter to share private messages between him and M.I giving the vibe that M.I was begging him.

M.I’s message read: “You are making it too easy and you are walking into set traps,” but this was misconstrued to mean the former was begging Vector, if this isn’t confusing, I do not know what is.

Sharing private messages on social media also has me wondering, who really is the RAT in this?

    Here is my opinion on the ongoing beef between MI and VECTOR
    I have always listened to Vector and never considered MI
    But trust me I called MI the king cos he’s been here for long
    To me MI is king in rap
    While Vector is good with the flows and words still been underated by those who don’t know music
    the beef made me see a new side of the rappers
    MI still carries the glories of the king
    He is just too perfect for me
    the way he conjures the word making them sound with supremacy
    NOW
    VECTOR is just that lowkey guy who have not been given respect he deserves
    when I listened to THE RAT I knew his flows and words were INERT he was born with it
    From his voice he sounds to me as guy who is really doing what he really enjoys that is playing with words
    It sounded like someone talking turned song

    So I believe MI is still the King and still has the GLORIES
    But believe me modernisation comes and kingdoms fade

    VECTOR has the talent but he still combines it with HARDWORK and HAPPINESS that is why
    He finds it so easy

    I believe they both are kings who can’t stay in same kingdom but believe me you both are LYRICAL GENIUS

    Vector and MI are both at fault, they both have their reasons, from vector calling MI a “cool kid” in his first track and saying it’s what you say to your friend but you forgot MI is not really a friend more like a competitor and MI dissing vector on martel cypher and wanting the Hennessey job, they have both wrong each other so no one should play “holy pass” Vector has quality content and he is brainy but MI is more sellable to the world with better craft. Forget what anyone says which diss track do u think is better between the viper and Judah the rap?

    Seriously I think the concept of Vec is totally misunderstood by tooxclusive.

    Now first of all even for a lame ass upcoming artiste like myself I won’t go into a diss flying all my bullets around I’ll start with the small guns and then the mid-range guns.

    Then finally the big guns, this diss is just starting, wait till the cobra strikes you its venom (if you must know it is very lethal)

    Look again that is a VIPER not a COBRA. Both cobras and vipers are known to have two FANGS and forked tongue but a COBRA does not have slit eye when attacking only VIPER. Check the artwork again. Also cobras have hoods something that spread if about to attack. I don’t see hood in that artwork instead a slithering snake. Then is the light going up from the eyes like a ‘horn’, something most viper has. I think you should just have evaluate the diss track for what it is – a diss track and stick to if it does the job well or not. Instead you are trying very hard to ridicule the effort

    Idiotic reporter!! More of this rubbish and you are out of business!!!!

    Ur opinion is quite subjective and not smart enough
    First of all, that’s a viper and not a cobra
    Secondly, I don’t know what you expected, but this is not just a diss, it’s a reply, and in terms of storyline, Vec went all in, he addressed every thing Mi accused him of, questioned MI’s character itself and also dissed him, all under 4 minutes, Vector had more punchlines and wordplay in 4 minutes than Mi did in 5

  43. Avatar

    And on a diss track
    Everyone pays more attention on the lyrics rather than d beat
    And u should probably try listening to the song again
    Cos it’s not something u can listen to just once to make ur reviews
    From D things u just listed
    It’s clear u r not a rap head at all
    U r just a regular music fan, nothing more

    Let’s talk about CC, not your BB girls
    Let’s talk a little bit about your CC mess
    You did your Emperor crazy, one of CC’s best
    The Brymo’s exit ushered in the CC stress
    I mean Dice could really rap, he had your CC crest
    And many artists don fall sha, off your CC steps
    CC was in the room, we guess CC left
    Even the lounge can testify, it reads CCX

    "You dey Lagos dey campaign, dey shine teeth for any invoice"

    "“How much did you say again? 20 milli? – We all saw how you wasted 1 milli”

    And if this aren’t punchlines, i don’t know what is? Just admit the bars are beyond you! You can’t comprehend

    That is a viper not a cobra. A rat killing a snake? Abeg how much were u paid to write this? Did any one edit it all? Is there even an editor? Everybody with a laptop and internet connection just writes all sorts these days. No research. Na wa o!
    Vector simply cleared false accusations levelled against him and pointed out Jesse’s brilliance as a gifted rapper. C’mon. Mind you, the background vocals at the beginning say “warning”…that means he is still playing nice on the track. He has not even dissed yet…he is just stating facts.

    We miss something, M addressed Vecs issues from YSG to Hennessy to doing shi for rap arts. Run me this real quick, was that not what Vec addressed back in his reply? I mean M could say somin bout Vecs YSG ish as a rapper, a vet, and a record exec, who is doing the same shii to artists under him in his record label but Vec couldn’t talk on that or rap about that because? And also we went crazy for M’s lyrical facts that weren’t correct! Facts like Vec sacking his first manager Michael, bout M talking bout CC spending a budget of20 million on
