Listen to A-Reece’s New Project ‘Reece Effect’

A new project from the prolific rapper and his producer.

A-Reece and his producer MashBeatz dropped a new project this morning. The 11-track project, which is titled Reece Effect, features some members of the The Wrecking Crew, Ex Global and Wordz, alongside IMP THA DON and Krish.


On Reece Effect, Reece and his goons are doing what's now expected of them—making world class rap records. As usual, the rapper reminds you how he's the don of this shit, and that he's living a desirable life (he raps, "We turned ballin' into a habit" on the song "$trange Habit$") and tells a few stories about his love life.

A-Reece has been one of the most prolific rappers to ever come out of South Africa, dropping potent projects consistently for the last five years or so, since 2013, when he dropped his first mixtape #ForeverKing. He's since released Browniez EP (2014), CUTaways EP (2016), Paradise album (2016), From Me To You and Only You album (2017), And I'm Only 21 EP (2018) and L3 (Long Lost Letters), a collaborative album with Wordz and Ecco. He has also dropped countless singles and collaborated with several other artists.

Reece Effect is part of a campaign to promote A-Reece's upcoming show of the same name, which will take place on 6 April. Supporting A-Reece will be Riky Rick, AKA, DJ Maphorisa, The Wrecking Crew, and a few others.

Bobi Wine's Release Detailed in Latest Episode of 'The Messenger'

Trauma is the topic on the podcast's latest episode: "The Ballot or The Bullet."

The latest episode of The Messenger is something to behold.

Created by Sudanese-American rapper Bas, The Messenger throws the spotlight on the thunderous circumstances many African countries face, with a close focus on Ugandan politician Bobi Wine.

In his most recent traumatic experience, Wine and his wife Barbara Itungo Kyagulanyi were released from a nearly two-week military house arrest following the ruling of a Ugandan court. Keeping up with current events and circumstances that Wine finds himself in, the latest episode of the podcast recounts the traumatic events that led to Wine's very public abuse and eventual house arrest.

Upon his release, Wine spoke with The Messenger and had this to say, "I want to remind the world that we went in this election knowing how corrupt the staff of the electoral commission is. We saw this through the campaign and the world saw how much was oppressed, how biased and one sided the electoral commission was, and how much it was in the full grip of General Museveni. And therefore we are going to test every legal test, we shall take every legal test. We shall take every legal step. And indeed we shall take every moral and morally proactive, nonviolent, but legal and peaceful step to see that we liberate ourselves. The struggle has not ended. It is just beginning."
