A-Reece Addresses Flame’s Departure From The Wrecking Crew in His New Song ‘Carele$$’

Looks like A-Reece and Flame clashed over a woman.

A-Reece dropped a new song this morning. Titled "Carele$$," the song features The Wrecking Crew Member Wordz. Well, rather what's left of the crew. The Pretoria-based collective recently shed a few members, one of them being Flame.

Fans have been speculating on what exactly happened to TWC, but nothing had been confirmed thus far. On "Carele$$," however, Reece lays it bare that the reason Flame left the crew was a woman.


He raps:

"What more can I say?/ What you expect to hear when niggas ask me about Flame?/ What makes you think I wanted it to happen this way?/ I was there before the money, she would never say the same/ How could you stick around and let her have her own way?/ She even go as far as throwing dirt on my name/ How you let her come between us and the records that we made?/Shit is crazy, but I just figured you acting your age."

"Carele$$" is short, and only consists of one verse from Reece, and its sole purpose is to clear the air.

The 10 Best HHP Songs Ranked

On the second anniversary of HHP's passing, we rank 10 of the South African hip-hop legend's best songs.

Jabulani Tsambo, popularly known by his alias HHP, was a pivotal part of South African hip-hop. Renowned for trailblazing the motswako sub-genre in the early 2000s, the rapper sadly passed away on October 24th, 2018 after a long and much publicised bout with depression.

During his active years, which span two decades (from 1997 to 2018), he was instrumental in breaking barriers and bridging the gap between kwaito and hip-hop in SA, from the late 90s to early 2000s.

He became a household name in the 2000s as he spearheaded the motswako movement, propelling it to the mainstream and solidifying his legendary status in the process.
