Namibian rap trio Black Vulcanite talk 'Black Colonialists,' reclaiming spaces and their latest video in a new interview with Okayafrica.
When futuristic Namibian rap trio Black Vulcanite burst onto the southern African hip-hop scene in 2013, they brought with them an air of consciousness that had been missing for some time. Ever since Tumi's Once Upon a Time in Africa and Zubz's Get Out, SA hip-hop had been missing the unspoken truths we were all witnessing but could do little about. Black Vulcanite's Remember the Future, however, foreshadowed a rise in black consciousness throughout southern Africa. They've been relatively quiet since then, but with the rise of #FeesMustFall in South Africa, #ThisFlag in Zimbabwe and various other protest movements throughout the region, there’s perhaps no better time than now for the group’s return.
