Kantai had some of the most mind-altering rhymes in the local hip-hop game:

My issues can’t be resolved with a tissue

God, that line still gives me chills to this day.

Clearly, here was a man that was blessed with the lyrical prowess, but cursed with the proverbial deficiencies of alcoholism.

In his heyday, Kantai rocked the mic and produce hit after hit that mesmerized Kenyan fans.

In fact, Kantai was so monumental in the local hip hop scene, that he paved way for the likes of STL and Papa Jones.

Tough as they may be, these are the questions that Kenyans would like to get the answers to.

In the meantime, RIP Chris Kantai.
